I am planning to take this exam on the Jan 31 2014

Last time I checked on the MS site I heard that on 1/31, MS was retiring this exam and some others - including the SQL 2008 MCITP

However, I now hear that they extended 70-647 until July 31 2014.

Is this true? Can someone please clarify. If so, I can use a few extra days of studying.

Thx

Hello,

According to the forum below, this exam will be retired on jan 31.  The July extension you heard of May have been meant for the mcitp certification.

This 70-647 is towards my MCITP exam. So does this mean I can extend my studies until 07/14 ?

So according to Microsoft, the exam now has no retire date.. they are simply behind on updates the pages to reflect the changes.

So no need to worry to crunch down 70-647 before 1/31 or 7/31 '14
