Pearson VUE is offering a free re-take on select MCP exams to anyone who fails an exam between April 30 and June 30.

According to a recent post on Microsoft's certification newsgroups, Pearson VUE is offering a free re-take on selected exams that candidates failed to pass. The retake is good only on exams taken between April 30 and July 1 and only for U.S. candidates.

The offer is not posted on the Pearson VUE site, but information on the offer is available via an obscure link that can be found by clicking here. According to information at that link, eligible candidates have been asked to call Pearson VUE and ask for the "Second Shot" campaign.

Also available at that link is information on how candidates who take selected training courses can obtain a free, not-for-resale copy of Windows Server 2003.
