Sign up for the beta, which will be made available from January 18, 1999 through February 8, 1999, and you'll qualify to take any MCP exam for free (Microsoft may offer it as a credit or provide a voucher at the testing site). And, according to Microsoft, participants who pass will get a free gift.

(A review of the Distributed Visual Basic 6.0 exam appears in the upcoming January issue of MCP Magazine.)
