    "Have you taken or are planning to take any of the following technical certifications? Select all that apply."

    Select all that apply but they give you a radio button instead of checkboxes. Typical M$. I also noticed it's missing the my favorite option: free exams with free prep and free retakes icon_smile.gif

    "Rank the following options assigning 1 to the option for which you would be most willing to pay a higher exam fee"

    Options: Free exam retake, Online proctored exam delivery, free practice, free online training, free exam prep book


    Well if the exam is going to cost more these aren't exactly free now are they!! So they are going help us out by making us buy more things when we take the exam? Thanks Microsoft!!

    I would say free prep and free retakes. Free training and book maybe for the exam.
