    That may very well be true... but Microsoft just announced it in their MCP Flash newsletter.

    I had 70-285 penciled in as my design choice for my MCSE as I thought it would be good to have some exchange in that mix.

    You've still got time. Just because an exam retires doesn't mean you can't use it to fulfill requirements - you absolutely can.
