Partner Up on XP Exam

Two can take Microsoft's Exam 70-270 for the price of single exam; available for limited time.

Microsoft is offering Exam 70-270, Installing, Configuring, and Administering Windows XP Professional, in a special promotion in which two candidates can take the exam for the price of one exam. The 2-for-1 exam offer is available only at Prometric centers worldwide.

According to information on the MCP Web site, a candidate only needs to register for exam 70-270 at a Prometric center before May 31, 2005. Registration then triggers an e-mail with a promotional code that the candidate can pass on a second candidate. When the first candidate actually takes the exam, he gets another e-mail containing an e-voucher for the same exam, which can be forwarded to the second candidate.

The first candidate must take the exam by June 30; the second candidate must use the e-voucher for exam 70-270 only, and must redeem it before November 30, 2005.

Exam 70-270 is one of several core exam options for the MCSA and MCSE credentials.

Not only do you have to take the test within a certain date, your freebie partner has to take it within a certain date and here's the real catch, the sun, earth, jupiter and your ANUS all have to be lined up just right!!! thanks for the break billy!!!

I take what ever break I can get. The tests are extremely over priced to begin with.

This is just goofy! C'mon, Bill...Give us a break. Why don't you just go ahead and give your 'aprentices' a real break, Cheapness!

This is a nice attempt by microsoft altho the first candidate doesnt benefit, why cant they offera 50% discount to each. That would be more helpful and beneficial to both candidates. Im not going to pay n then give freebie to someone else thanks
