Wherever you head about Win2K exams expiring, your source was mistaken. Microsoft has indicated they won't retire those exams until one year after the next version of Windows--code-named "Longhorn" (desktop for the Win2K Pro/XP Pro replacement; server for the Win2K/Windows 2003 Server replacement) ships. Most experts predict that the desktop won't ship until 2006, which means 70-210 wouldn't retire until 2007, and that the server won't ship until 2007, which means the 70-21x and other related exams wouldn't retire until 2008.

HTH, and don't worry about discontinuations for the time being. They're still a ways off...
