Free Voucher for 70-300 Exam

Microsoft to offer MCSD on Microsoft .NET candidates one free chance to take key required exam. Offer good until Sept. 30, 2003.

If you're a current MCSD on Visual Studio 6.0 title holder, Microsoft says you're eligible to obtain a free voucher for the 70-300, Analyzing Requirements and Defining .NET Solution Architectures Exam. The 70-300 exam went live on Monday, Feb. 10.

The company will allow current titleholders to obtain the voucher beginning Mar. 1 through the Microsoft MCP Secure site at http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcp/mcpsecure.asp. Training and certification program manager Eckhart Boehme says that the offer is also being extended to those who "achieve the certification on the MCSD on the Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 track by September 19, 2003." The special 70-300 voucher has a short shelf life—it must be redeemed by Sept. 30, 2003.

"I'm not sure if I passed yet," says Jason Mauss, a .NET trainer and developer at Knowledge Relay, LLC in San Francisco, who took the beta version of the exam in November. "I'll probably take the free voucher [that Microsoft] is offering," he says, if his results show that he has failed. Reports on Microsoft's own MCSD newsgroup discussions indicate that only a handful of 70-300 beta exam takers have received results for the exam as of Monday afternoon.
