                  cemarzu, considering Hasdou's post was made in January and there is 1 week until the end of June, your post was unnecessary and a bit, well, almost hostile. Sorry, can't think of a better word at this point in time.

                  I know not everyone has English as their first language and misunderstandings can occur because of the way a post is worded, but your have bolded your accusatory statement AND ended it with an exclamation mark!! Aslo, since Hasdou made only one post in this thread, how can it be wrong again!

                  Please show care posting replies to try and avoid misunderstandings.

                  Thank you.

                          I hope they never stop extending it...

                          ...however I am a bit curious as to why they're so generous lately. Are not as many people getting Microsoft certified as they'd like? My suspicion is that they're trying to promote their new line of certs (MCITP, et. al.) and get them out into the wild in hopes that hiring managers will become more familiar with them. That in turn would hopefully encourage more people to get certified. The cycle repeats.

                          Either way, I'm not complaining.

                            Yep, my feeling's the same.
                            I think it's more of a Marketing trick than a sign of generosity, otherwise they'd just leave the deal on permanently without needing to extend all the time.

                              I'm not a big fan of the Second Shot, you can't use a voucher with it :[

                              I've never taken an MS exam without the 15% discount you get when you buy their book.
