Microsoft training: Take a "second shot" exam for free

So, if you want to get certified but aren't a great test taker, here is some good news for you.

Microsoft and training company Prometric are offering what they call "a Second Shot" for taking certification tests. Effective as of September 15, you can get a free second chance to pass a Microsoft IT Professional, Developer, or Microsoft Dynamics certification exam. According to Microsoft and Prometric, here's how it works:

* Step 1: Register for Second Shot on the Microsoft site and receive an exam voucher number.

* Step 2: Using the voucher number, schedule and pay for your initial exam via Prometrics's web site, call center or test center locations. (You must have the voucher number available prior to registering.)

* Step 3: Take your exam.

* Step 4: If you fail, register for your free retake exam via Prometric's web site, call center or test center locations using the same voucher number. NOTE: Please wait one day after the failed exam to register to allow for test results to be entered into the system.

The offer will be available worldwide, from September 15, 2007 to January 31, 2008, to anyone who registers for Second Shot and fails their first attempt at one of these exams.
