I purchased the exam insurance but for both tests (70-271 & 70-272). I passed
the first and am working on the second. I figured if I pass the test - great;
I’m covered discount wise for the others I want. If I don't, I get free
retake. If I pass one but not the other I have free retake and a discount on
a second retake if I really screw up.
