Microsoft Offers Free Exam Retakes Through June

Popular "second-shot" promotion keeps coming back; this time, it's worldwide.

Today Microsoft reintroduced its "Second Shot" promotion that gives candidates a free retake opportunity on a failed Microsoft exam.

The offer applies to any Microsoft IT Professional, Developer or Dynamics exam taken now through June 30, and is available through Pearson Vue and Prometric testing centers worldwide. The retake must be taken by July 31.

To participate, candidates must first register with Microsoft and obtain a promotion code. This promotion code must be used when signing up for the original exam.

The exam and the retake must be taken through same test delivery provider. There is no limit to the number of exams candidates can register for.

Retakes normally cost the same as the original exam: $125 (U.S.). To sign up for this promotion, go here.

getting a degree doesn't guarantee you a job, and neither does passing these exams. passing exams just proves you have some idea about the tech and maybe it gets you an interview. what happens after that is up to you and maybe your personality.

You got that right anon...passing the tests doesn't mean chit! Getting a job is next to impossible. They want to much.

Even you pass the exams, it does not mean you can have a good job.

This just reiterates the 'gentler kinder' world we live in. If you can't pass the exams you aren't ready!
