I read the books which I borrowed from a colleague and listened to a taping of the class.

Did you sign-up for the exam at the same time you purchased the courseware? If so, I believe they're supposed to provide you an exam that reflects the version of the course that you purchased.
If you purchased an exam attempt afterwards (and after they revised the exam), then I'm not sure what the expectation is. You should email SANS to see if they can get you on the previous version of exam.
It's unfortunate that the alumni price went up. I think SANS prices have gone up across the board. It looks like the average cost for the 6-day long courses via SelfStudy range between $3,960 to 4,150 plus an extra $449 for the OnDemand add-on (and for live instruction at a SANS conference, $4,645 to $4,845). Wow, that's quite a jump. Seriously.
SANS usually offer discount specials for their OnDemand courses though, usually about 20 percent (or they offer a free Mac mini or something). But still...
