The event takes place from March 9-13. Incentives include discounts on training courses, a 40-percent discount on exams, and the chance to win Microsoft Zunes or licenses for Microsoft Office Standard or Windows Vista. According to information posted on the Microsoft Web site, the exam discount runs to March 13 and can not be applied along with other discounts, such as the Second Shot offer.
