EXAMS 70-687 and 70-688 will expire on 30th November 2015The classroom texts do not contain the answers to the self assessment questions at the end of each section and are only available thru a certified Microsoft Instructor. From what I understand, the cost of the classroom course is $1000 per day.I have Buckley's Chance of doing this as a self-teaching course unless someone can tell me otherwise.I have written to Microsoft, see letter below=====================================================================================Windows 8.1 became available for general release on October 17th 2013 and the Windows 8.1 MCSA Exams 70-687, 70-688 are retiring on the 30th November 2015 leaving just 2 years for students to plan and acquire the necessary resources and study material from Microsoft Press and other sources to complete their studies.To exacerbate the problem some publications needed for the studies took in excess of 12 months before they became available (courtesy of and John Wiley Publications). This situation is causing me substantial financial loss in terms of wasted course registration and literature.My complaints and queries are as follows:For each exam described on the Microsoft Learning website there are no prominent indications to warn students of impending exam retirement. I had to scour through a maze of links before realizing that the MCSA Exams 70-687, 70-688 for Windows 8.1 were due for retirement .Please also note that other people are having the same problems.Windows 7 MCSA Exams are still available, then, why are the MCSA Exams 70-687, 70-688 for Windows 8.1 retiring and no courses are available for Windows 10 ?
