I have some interesting news about Microsoft Certification. The prices of the exams that are going to be retired on March 2009 are going to be lowered by 40% and also vouchers will be provided to Microsoft Professionals who would be interested in upgrading their credentials to the new certifications. More details will be available shortly. The lower prices is supposed to come into effect by the 1st of September 2008.
I will post more on this when I get more information.
