    Some time ago Microsoft used to give you free exam vouchers when you pass
    beta exam. Anyone recently passed beta exam and can comment if they still do
    that?

    Thanks

  3. It seems they had a change in heart brother. Per Microsoft:

    However you choose to proceed, we would like to offer you an exam
    voucher for use on any of the related Vista exams (70-620, 70-621,
    70-622, 70-623, or 70-624) in recognition of your valuable time and
    contribution to Microsoft Certification. Microsoft Learning respects
    your time and sincerely appreciates your participation in our exam
    development process; we regret any inconvenience to our customers due to
    our mistake. Instructions on how to claim your free exam voucher will be
    sent to you in your beta re-take invitation(s); see table above for
    dates.

    Yes bro, that is an exception because of some issues with the beta exam
    process on 70-621, 70-622, and 70-623. It is an exception rather than the
    rule.

    Microsoft did give out vouchers when I took the SQL 2005 exams as betas. Do
    you know when the policy changed? I was really looking forward to the
    vouchers.
