exam retirement

Is there a page somewhere that show when exams are scheduled for retirement?

How long will 70-215 be valid?

I have been given all the course books for Win2K from someone who took the courses. I am wondering if I should do the Win2K test or invest in the 2003 books.

    There is no date set to retire 215 currently. M$ will give at least a year notice or so, before an exam is retired. I'd say, if you have the book, use it.

    Yea, i'm working on my MCSE for 2000 and then the upgrade exams. I've seen quite a few job posts that still ask for 2000. It will make my resume look good!

    I don't think they will retire the 2k exams anytime soon. The company I work for still has Win 95 clients. It's expensive to upgrade and a lot of places have older clients than you may think.

    I had heard somewhere that they wouldn't retire the 2k or 2k3 exams until at least 2010, so that gives you some time :).

    I can't find any official info, but I'm sure that it helps. I think with MS certs, it seems fair that you should only have to take upgrade exams every few generations.
    I do not have a psychiatrist and I do not want one, for the simple reason that if he listened to me long enough, he might become disturbed.
