    Not sure if this has been posted already or is well known but a heads up looks like the grace period to take the exams has been extended to December 2011 if you bought an exam pack on or after 01/01/2011. You need to take the first exam by June 2011. Link HERE Info at bottom of the page under "Please Note". Gives me a bit of breathing space to take my exams :biggrin.

    Well that is good. I grabbed a code before christmas just in case but didn't book any. Just grabbed a new code now. I expected to get the 2 exams I was going to do by June but this is better as you never know what life is going to throw at you!

    The exam pack is great
    but has some limitations

    I have the five pack and this is what I have found out

    you can only book one exam at a time (this is due to the way the same code is used for second shot attempts)
    once you pass a test, after 24 hours you should be able to book another one
    if you FAIL a test, you have to wait 72 hours before you can book your second shot (only your second shot, not another exam with another number)
    once you pass or fail that, you can book your next exam after 24 hours

    now, over the Christmas break when i was trying to squeeze as many exams into two weeks as possible, this was a gargantuan problem for me
    i imagine for most people, it won't be :)
