thinking of taking an exam in the near future? Right now is an excellent
opportunity to get a one-year subscription to TechNet Plus Direct for free. If
you purchase Exam Insurance and take your first exam before January 31st
the subscription is yours! Exam Insurance means that if you fail your first try
you will get the next for free. If you pass on the first try you will get a 25%
discount on your next one.
details about the offer is to be found here.
information on the TechNet Plus Direct subscription: You can download all
Microsoft products and use them in a test environment, not in production. You
will also get access to Beta version which this year actually means that you
will be able to try out Longhorn Server :) Other
benefits that many aren’t aware of is that you get two FREE support incidents
and lots of KB articles. More information about TechNet Subscriptions can be
with your certifications!
I have registered and taken an exam. However today when attempting to find out how long until i would receive my TechNet Plus Direct subscription (10-12 weeks, which is amazingly long) i found the following link http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/offers/insurance/faq/default.mspx
Now that we have found this i have colleagues who are thinking of cancelling as a worldwide offer, surely the 10,000 places have been filled.
How can you find out if your one of the lucky 10,000? or if the offer is still open, you can still register?
I had no idea about the limit but I will try to find out ASAP how many is still left. Try contact your local training center and maybe they can help you as well. I'll be back with more information...
I got an answer from the responsible person last night but that was kind of too late!! Sorry about that but I also gave him the feedback that next time we want to know how many are left....
