When considering any IT certification, one of the main factors to include in the deliberations should be: how much longer will this credential last? The most tangible expression of this question is how long the exam will remain available. After all, if the exam goes away before you have time to take it, why should you spent pots of money needed for books, training and practice exams?

For this reason, we always inform you of all retiring exams to give you an opportunity to have enough time to prepare for exams and then pass them. And we don’t cease to advise you to visit the ExamCollection website and join our IT community. This portal is really a good preparation option for your successful exam passing.

Now let’s talk about new portion of Microsoft retiring exams. The OEM Preinstallation for Windows 10 (70-734) exam was withdrawn on August 31, 2017. As you can see, it is no longer available. But the second exam will be retired only on September 30, 2017, so you still can become a lucky holder of Microsoft certification.
