Reprieve on MCP Retake Offer

Microsoft extends "second-shot" exam promotion three more months.

Microsoft's base MCP exam retake promotion was supposed to come to an end on May 31, but the offer was given a reprieve and is now being extended another three months.

The MCP Exam "Second-Shot" offer's new deadline is August 31, 2005. Exam retakes must be completed by September 30, 2005.

Microsoft's "Second-Shot Offer" allows anyone taking and failing an MCP exam from June 1 to August 30 to retake that exam. According to the offer posted on the MCP site, candidates can retake an exam only once, but the retake can be applied to as many exams as a candidate can take until the offer ends.

To qualify for the promotion, registration is mandatory. To read more details on the retake offer and the FAQ, go to http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/offers/2ndshot/.

The offer is available worldwide, but it can't be combined with any other exam offer that requires a promotional code, including the MCP 2-for-1 exam offer or special offers in India.

Microsoft preceded this offer with an extension to a similar offer for candidates who plan to take Microsoft Partner competency exams and Microsoft Business Solutions exams. See "Second-Shot for MBS Exams" at http://mcpmag.com/news/article.asp?EditorialsID=784.
