Two chances for the price of one to gain the adoration of millions... Also, if you've been keeping up
I've been trying to schedule this exam, but it doesn't appear in the exam list in prometric's web site.
Any idea why??
Please ensure you are searching for 71-450 and not 70-450.
Actually, it's not appearing in the exam list of Prometric's web site. But it's because:
Registration begins: August 15, 2008"
The promotion code 239F4 is not working.
I'm getting "Promotion not found"
Today I tried to schedule an appointment but the promotional code 239F4 was not found.
Is it wrong?
According to Prometric the offer for 71-450 is not valid in Europe.
So Gerry, I´m trying to schedule this exam, but the Promotion Code appears as "Promotion Not Found", why?
It's on the site but not bookable at the moment - Page cannot be displayed! It was better when vue did the exams and not prometric.
To all with promo code issues.
I am looking into this right now to determine the problem. It should be working and I will have it fixed shortly.
Please be patient.
Please attempt your registrations again.
I have been told this should be addressed now.
If not, please let me know ASAP.
Now the code is validated correctly.
I've just registered for this and the code has been validated. Thanks Gerry!
Any word on the beta exam for 70-433 (the SQL 2008 dev exam)? I had heard the beta was going to be opened up on August 15, and I haven't seen anything yet.
