  • There seem to be no Prometric test center that offers this exam. I checked about a dozen of test centers in southeastern Pennsylvania and none had it available.

  • Hi Gerry,

    thanks for extending the test period. I just tried to register, but the exam is not in the exam list.



  • The exam is not on the Prometrics list of available exams. (not as 071, nor 070).


  • Great!

    but i've just tried to schedule 71-433 and it not appears in the prometric's list of available exams (today is sunday 12 october).

    Are there limitations for italy?

  • Hi Gerry,

    I've just gone to Prometric website and we don't have the 71-433 option anymore. Do you know if Prometric has some delay for "re-include" this exame for this week or if we'll need to schedule directly on some training center?



  • Sorry everyone, this one is our fault.  We made the decision to extend this, I posted here about it, but we failed to notify Prometric in time.

    I expect it to be available today for registration.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.


  • Gerry,

    The exam is now appearing on the Prometric list, but the PROMO CODE is not valid anymore (F589G).

  • Hi Gerry,

    I get the "Promotion not found." error message when validating promotioninal code.

    I have tried the "F589G" promotional code.

    Kind regards,


  • Hi Gerry,

    I see the exam offered in Prometric Australia but the promotional code does not work. Has this expired?

  • Gerry, I´m trying to schedule, but the Prometric website respond as a Timeout Expired at Voucher Number or Promotion Code webpage.

    Voucher Number or Promotion Code

    Timeout expired

  • Hi Gerry,

    Sorry to post here, but there is 071-563 exam available on Prometric website. Is Microsoft going to make promo code available for public?


  • I could register today with Prometrics. Taking test tomorrow. Thanks Gerry.

  • Hi everyone,

    Working on finding out what the issues are.  It should be fixed shortly though.

    Please give it a few hours and try again.
