Up with Thomson Vue, down with Pearson Prometric

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Death from Above, Jul 19, 2007.

  1. I can't believe that Microsoft will no longer be delivering tests through
    Thomson Vue anymore! Thomson Vue is the shiznit. Now I'm going to have to
    drive to the nearest Pearson Prometric testing center. It's over 442 miles
    away on a snow covered road that is uphill both ways! I was about to swear
    off Microsoft certifications forever but then they updated the Number of
    MCPs page (http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/certified.mspx). When I
    looked at it, I realized how special I am. My Microsoft certifications
    really validate my existence.

    My real hope is that Vue Prometric will buy Thomson Pearson and that way we
    would have a single EDP with tons of testing centers and incredible service.
    And it would have a catchy name, Vue Prometric Pearson Thomson.

    Interesting... maybe they've not counted those who have also got MCSE
    with 2000 or 2003.

    maybe so, or maybe they are using the new version of Excel to calculate
    this and have found a new function called "auto-diminishing braindumper
    count"
