    You have until June 30, 2009, to register, obtain an exam voucher, complete your first exam and retake your exam (if you did not pass on your first attempt).
    There is no limit per person: If you register for this offer, you will receive one free retake for each paid exam that you take and fail.

    To take advantage of this offer:

    Step 1: Register for Second Shot on the Microsoft Web site and receive an exam voucher number.

    Step 2: Schedule and pay for your initial exam through the Prometric Web site, call center,* or test center.
    Note You must have the voucher number before you register.

    Step 3: Take the exam.

    Step 4: If you do not pass the exam on your first attempt, register for your free retake exam through the Prometric Web site, call center,* or test center by using the same voucher number. Then, take your Second Shot!
    Note You must wait one day after taking your initial exam before you can register for your retake exam. This time is required to enter test results into the system.

    Which exams qualify for this Second Shot offer?
    Any Microsoft Learning IT professional, developer, or Microsoft Dynamics exam qualifies for this offer.

        Oh well, I managed to do my MCITP:EA rigggght between the two Second Shot offers haha. If they come out with a MCITP:EA+Security I'll use it for that I guess.
