Gli Esami Microsoft sono come tutte le tecnologie in continua evoluzione; mano a mano che vengono inseriti a catalogo i nuovi corsi e relativi esami, alcuni inerenti alle tecnologie più vecchie vengono messi in “dismissione”.

Anche nel momento in cui un esame Microsoft viene ritirato, è da tener presente che la certificazione conseguita grazie al suo superamento rimane comunque valida, senza quindi avere una scadenza effettiva. Questo l’elenco degli esami Microsoft che stanno per essere ritirati:
