Microsoft Extends Exam Retake Offer to June 2009
Program provides MCP and Dynamics exam takers with one more chance to pass a failed exam.
The Microsoft Learning Group has extended its popular "Second-Shot" exam retake program. According to information posted on the Microsoft Learning Web site, the program this time will continue until June 30, 2009.
The exam retake program provides MCP test takers with a second chance to pass a failed exam, and can be taken once for every paid exam. Test takers must register prior to taking an exam in order to obtain an electronic voucher for an exam retake if the tester fails an exam.
Exams and exam retakes can only be done through Microsoft's testing provider, Prometric. Any MCP or Dynamics exam can be retaken. (Exams taken in beta do not qualify for this program; as well, academic versions of the exams prefixed with a 072 don't qualify for this offer.)
Microsoft has run the exam retake offer several times in the past; the most recent program concluded on June 30, 2008.
