FREE MS Certification Exam Voucher Giveaway

This morning, I attended a 2 hours Microsoft TechNet Presentation named "Expand your knowledge 2006"; A clever name to hide a 2 hours Linux bashing session. Basically, the presentation started by: "Microsoft has nothing against open source software, BUT!", and then the Linux bashing show started. It was pathetic. I have to admit that the presenter had some good arguments about why MS applications brings down your total cost of ownership, but it would have been interesting to listen to someone with another point of view to defend the open-source community.

For my participation to the event, I received a free exam voucher for an MS certification exam. (Worth around $125USD). Anyone interested in having it? I give it away for free! Just write a comment about why you need it and I'll pick the person who I think is most worthy (US and Canada only).

This free exam voucher may be redeemed for one of the following MS Certification Program exams:

  • 70-431: TS: MS Sql server 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance
  • 70-536: TS: MS .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development Foundation
  • 70-551: UPGRADE: MCAD Skills to MCDP Web Developer by Using the MS .NET Framework
  • 70-552: UPGRADE: MCAD Skills to MCPD Windows Developer by using the MS .NET Framework
  • 70-553: UPGRADE: MCSD MS .NET Skills to MCPD Enterprise Application Developer by Using the MS .NET Framework: Part 1
  • 70-235: TS: Developing Business Provess and Integration Solutions Using MS BizTalk Server 2006

Good luck!

  • I guess I'll take a shot at the Certification Voucher. Makes me glad I read your weblog often :)

    I tend to make most of my money through personal computer related work. Due to some health-related issues I can't hold a retail-type job that requires me to be on my feet all day, so this field has always suited me.

    I'd like to be able to get certified, but the obstacle of the fee certainly isn't appealing. This would allow me to take it without that obstacle. Unless someone else posts that's more deserving, I'd appreciate the voucher.

    I can provide my mailing address, etc via email if you opt to choose me.

  • Hey jeff, create yourself a temporary email address and leave it to me here, I'll email you the details, and you can give me your mailing address over there.

    No one else seems interested...

  • I suppose I'll just use a pre-existing address unparsed. You can email me at jeffsugar AT gmail DOT com. Thanks. I'd say it's a shame no one else seems interested, but it's better for me this way :)
