    Hi, it seems so...

    Prometric all the way, at least for the time-being it seems!

    As I posted a while back, this is the site address that is used to advertise Microsoft's current exam 'offers':

    Microsoft Learning > Professional Career Portal > Special Offers for IT Professional and Developer Careers

    There are no 'Exam Pack' offers available at the moment though...
    When they are available they tend to be of the "Buy a 2-exam (or more) pack to receive a 15% discount plus a free retake" type.

    These do tend to be available for a 'good chunk' of any calendar year but I've not seen any since the price-hike from £88 to £99 took place. I presume though that they'll return sometime in 2012.

    Looked on any auction sites, or thought of buying the MS press book that will have a voucher within it?

    I already got a voucher in the book but wanted to see if I could get a better deal!

    Hi Just joined forum.

    I got my voucher of ebay from the states. was half the price. The reason they are cheap is they expire within a month or so.

    Passed the 70.680 recently. But not helping me get a job though. even though got years of experience.

    Can I get second shot vouchers yet anywhere?

    I am going to be sitting the 70-291 soon, and as it has somewhat of a "reputation" I would like a bit of insurance if I fail...

    See the post above. You'll have to be quick to sit the 291 and to use the second shot as well (if needed) because (I think) the second shot campaign finishes 31.12 this year.

    I believe he's referring to this...

    I just bought one off ebay from a seller with a decent amount of feed back and feedback from people with lots of feedback and it was fine. It was £45 but runs out the end of the month I have used it and it was fine.
