70-664 Exam Retiring Date RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Please I need some advice on the above exam. I'm not up to date with Microsoft exams. The last one (MS Exchange 5.5) I took was back 1998. How many questions are in the 70-664 exam and what  is the format(drag n drop, scenario questions etc)? Also, is it too late to go for the exam as it is retiring by end of Oct/2012 (correct me if I'm wrong) or should I wait for the new version ( Lync Server 2013) coming up next year? 

    Appreciate your early response.

    Cheers,

  • The two exams you need to pass for Lync 2010 MCITP (70-664 and 70-665) are not scheduled for retirement at all.

    At best they would be retired some time late in 2013 or early/mid 2014.

    The Lync 2013 exams will be released some time in 2013, based on Lync 2013 product release date estimates and the time required to create exams. Lync 2013 Preview just came out in mid July.

    Good luck!

  • If I were you, I would be looking at 70-662 and 70-663 for Exchange 2010.

    These exams are not scheduled to retire and you can earn the TITLE: MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator on Exchange 2010

    Take a look at the following MCITP thread to help you determine which exam(s) is/are right for you.

    It also lists all the exam retirement dates.

  • As I'm working in Telecoms industry, I'm changing my career to Unified Communication (UC). Yes, Exchange 2010 is part of MS UC, but I'll like to include Lync Server. Probably wait for Lync 2013 exam. How long will I have to wait for this, no idea?

    Thanks,
