Reminder: Exam Prices Going Up, Exams Retiring

True fact: It takes about $125 to fill a new Chevy Suburban at some southern California gas stations (I was just reminded of that by my Suburban-owning mechanic as I was getting my 4Runner serviced). That's right, a Suburban tank is the same as a Microsoft exam. Okay, so that fact is true for about a few more weeks, as Microsoft exam prices will be going up to $150 starting July 1.

Of course, that fact might come true once again if there's predictions of gas prices over the summer heading nearer to $5 territory. Ouch! Microsoft exams seem like the better bargain in the long run.

On a related note, the end of the month is also the end for a slew of Microsoft exams. Microsoft announced those retirements back in December, and we told you about that here. In any event, Emmett Dulaney over at CertCities lists the exams here. If you're planning to take those exams before prices go up, you really better hurry (and some may not even be available at your test center).
