Info is here.
Interesting note is the notes on the bottom say if you use it for beta exams and fail, they will send you a retake voucher good for the live test after you get your beta results.

There Are beta tests active right now for Visual Studio 2012.

    Sweet! Once I knock out 70-647 in a few weeks, I'll definitely get second shot for 70-649 so I can finish out MCITP:EA. I dunno about anyone else, but I always liked having the second shot because I felt less pressure at the test center for my first attempt, basically like having a safety net.

    Well no more excuses. I have to finish them up now. Just realized I have free Skillport access through Robert Half that I am going to take full advantage of too!

    This will be good to finally finish 70-646, but I noticed it says select exams.. I looked around but couldn't see if the 70-685 exam was included.. several of my co-workers need to get theirs, and before I send out the 2nd shot info, I'd like to be sure that it's part of the program.. any idea?

    *edit
    if the site is up-to-date, it looks like the 685 is part of it

    Question: How long does this offer last? I'm looking to get my MCSA:2008 before the tests are retired and am wondering if I should go ahead and buy all the vouches I need now before the second shots go away or if I will have enough time to buy vouchers as I need.
  • MishraMishra Posts: 2,468Member ■■■■□□□□□□
    Remember to enter your second shot voucher FIRST or Prometric will require a 35 dollar cancellation fee because you "canceled your exam". There is no refreshing the scheduled exam.

    Excellent news. Been away for awhile, work demands and projects. What timing on the 2nd shot! Will be using this to finish MCSE 2003, only a couple left for me, and the tests will be retired by next July.
    -WIP- (70-294 and 297)

    Once MCSE 2k3 completed:

    WGU: BS in IT, Design/Management

    Finish MCITP:EA, CCNA, PMP by end of 2012

    After that, take a much needed vacation!!!!!
