I found this today while surfing through Microsoft… definitely a bonus for those looking at getting certified…
Now, you can get a free second shot at any Microsoft Learning IT Professional, Developer, or Microsoft Dynamics (formerly Microsoft Business Solutions) exam.
To participate, register for the second shot offer before you take any exam. You’ll receive a promotion code that is good for one free second shot at the same exam in case you don’t pass it on your first try. There’s no limit per customer, so after you’ve registered, you’ll be entitled to one free retake of any exam that you sign up for.
You can schedule your initial exam through either of our exam delivery providers (EDPs)—Thomson Prometric or Pearson VUE through their Web sites, call centers, or test center locations. Just make sure that you have your second shot promotion code before you register for your first exam. If you fail your exam, wait one business day to sign up for your retake so that we can enter your test results into the system. Then, contact either the Pearson VUE or Thomson Prometric call center to schedule your second shot exam. Let an agent know that you’ve registered for the second shot offer, and the agent will sign you up for your free retake.
Your initial exam must be scheduled and taken between February 15, 2006 and June 30, 2006. Your free retake exam must be scheduled and taken with the same EDP as your first exam by July 31, 2006.
