Is Microsoft SharePoint certification #70-573 retired?

I am interested in taking up this exam as I have 1 year experience in SharePoint 2010.

If this certification is retired, please suggest other SharePoint exams that goes well with 1 year of experience.

According to the retired exams list, none of SharePoint 2010 exams towards MCITP or MCPD have expired.

MCITP is scheduled to expire in January 2016.

I don't have any particular suggestions as it is very straight-forward: either MCPD or MCITP or both. You can also move your focus towards SP2013 and Office 365, but keep in mind that these new certifications appear to expire after 2 years or so.


This MCSD certification requires you to show continued ability to perform in your chosen solution area by completing a recertification exam every two years.
