    I've read somewhere bout exam vouchers, but the only 2 sites that I found them on were american sites, but I was wondering if you can buy them in the UK or if they can be used in the UK.

    just make sure you select the correct region - it is all too easy to order vouchers to be used for US and Canada.

    Just checked out the site, and it's for the old exams, not the new ones.

    The ones on the site say for exams 301 and 302, but the new ones are essentials then either 602, 603 or 604 :(

    ^^^^ -- what Mr.Cheeks said ;)

    and I have bought 3 vouchers from there (2x A+ and N+) and saved about £50 a time, so saving £150 is a bargain in my book. :D

    Ahh, I didn't see that part about the new 601 exam!

    Thanks for the help guys. At a currency exchange of 1.91, I've worked out I'll save £35 per test. Only problem is I have to travel a fair distance to a test centre, but if I did both exams on the same day, I'll be saving alot of money.

    I'm planning on booking them for the second week of april as I have 12 days off then.

    Cheers guys, If I ever meet any of you, I'll buy you a drink! :D

    So how much are the exams without the voucher? Tried looking on the VUe site but no joy....

    They're around £108 on Thompson but on Vue they're £108 plus VAT.

    Ok, and you only get one voucher at a time. so two vouchers = $280-ish which is roughly £140. Two tests would be £216+vat.

    I only say that becuase it can seem all a bit weird ordering these "vouchers" and not understanding what you get out of it...

    I see the bundles on the links contain practice questions as well as the vouchers?

    It is a very big saving indeed. There is a test centre just down the road from me, less than 2 miles, but if I want to use the vouchers, I'll need to spend around £15-20 on petrol travelling, but in the long run I'll be saving money. I know what you mean about it seeming weird though.

    I took a quick look at this link here:

    http://www.getcertify4less.com/cisco.asp

    The thing I don't understand is why do I have buy the self test software when I buy the voucher ? Why can't I just buy the voucher by itself ? Does this mean that I have to buy the software every time I need to buy a voucher ?

    Somehow that doesn't sound right to me.

    I can't remember the exact wording but the reason they have the extra stuff ith the vouchers is because they are not allowed to sell the discounted vouchers on their own, to give us the "member" pricing they have to sell something else with the voucher.
