CONFUSED

Greetings,

This is my first post on this forum, however I have been reading it for a while.

I'm very confused with the date this exam (70-291) will be retired by MS. It's been a long time since I passed 270, 290 and 293. As I decide to take on the beast, I called MS yesterday to ask when will it be gone. The customer service agent mentioned that the test will be available until May 24, 2008 (1 week left). In the other hand I have been reading that many people on this forum are preparing and scheduling 291 for future dates. icon_confused.gif icon_confused.gif

I would like to take this sucker down, but as us know that 1 week is certainly not sufficient time to accomplish it.



Any comment will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Blade

    It's not scheduled to retire. Only a select # of Widnows 2000 exams.

    As you can see, 70-291 is not on that list.

    Because people make mistakes.

    Thanks God this was a mistake. And thank you ROYAL for your quick and direct response.


    Any suggestions on how I should start tackling this monster. I understand it will be extremely tough for me since I’ve been off my studies since 2006.
