I needed to renew my JNCIS-ER and registered for the JN0-350 on the Prometric site on Dec 8th, 2010 to take it Dec 18th. and now I see the note about this being replaced, and also the exam confirmation was titled:
ER, Specialist (JNCIS-ER) - retires December 3, 2010
I checked with Prometric and they looked into it and they said that for sure this is a valid exam/certificate but I want to make 100% sure so I'm checking here. Please advise.

[[Edited to provide more clarity]]
You are still good to go with your dates.
The JNCIA-ER/EX exams EOL'd on December 3 and are no longer available.
For the JNCIS-ER, it is also considered EOL; however, there are some behind-the-scenes intricacies that have led to keeping it technically still alive with Prometric until 12/31/10.
Good luck with it,
Tech Lead, JNCP
