    Just got the following email:

    New Prices for Microsoft Certifications Exams

    Effective July 1, 2011, the retail price of certain Microsoft Certification exams will increase.*

    This change reflects the significant value that our certifications provide to our customers and our continual investment in new and enhanced Microsoft Certifications and other program improvements.

    For more information about this increase, please visit our frequently asked questions page.

    Note: Microsoft Learning does not anticipate that this price increase will impact Microsoft Certified Master (MCM), Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA), Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA), and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification exams.

    * Price change effective in India August 1, 2011.

    Ive got to admit im a bit outraged out this? Years ago you used to get a free MSDN account, free certificates (now only download certs are free, i.e. you have to pay to get the hard copy) and other benefits with certification, now they have been slowly striped away and you get nothing and theyre raising the prices!

    There was a thread on here the other week discussing this. Any price increase isn't going to be welcomed although they haven't changed the price in 10 years according to MS.
