    First of all, i'd just like to say hello to all on this forum, ive been on afew times but never posted anything.

    I've been studing for the 70-271 exam for what seams to be ages. i booked my exam 5 weeks ago, and my test should have been today at 13.30. i turned up, signed in, and it wasnt till i sat in the exam room i found out that either prometric had put me in for the wrong exam (70-270), or i'd booked the wrong exam.

    So, i didnt take the test, and the test centre advised me to go home and try and sort it out with prometric. i got home about half hour ago, and much to my disapointment, ive booked the wrong exam (70-270) :( so i rang prometric, and aparently theres nothing i can do, only use my second chance offer from microsoft before the end of feb 2009. They told me its my own fault as i booked the exam, which i know and now feel abit stupid. I guess the only thing i can do now is study hard and take the exam i booked in feb. the annoying thing is, when i was at the test centre i thort shall i just have ago at the 70 - 270 exam just incase theres nothing i can do about it by ringing prometric. if i fail, so what, at least i would get a feel for whats in an exam, as ive not taken any before (only prcatice exams)

    I was hoping my first post would be a positive one, like PASSED 70 - 271, but never mind :x

    Nevermind, we all make stupid mistakes. Rest assured that you'll be very careful when booking exams in the future due to what happened.

    Best of luck with the re-test and welcome to the forums! :)

    When it gets close to time to take it, reschedule it for a couple of months out. I believe you've got a year after you purchase the exam to finally take it. Maybe you'll be ready for 70-270 by then. :)
