IBM is giving away free testing vouchers for some of their certification exams. Has anyone got the free testing voucher.

Mannu,
The link you posted says you need to wait four days.

I am giving the 157 test a try but the site always hangs. Anyone experiencing the same? I was about half-way done when it hanged. Also, I have to wait 2-3 minutes to be able to go to the next question.

guys who got the free voucher, did you get a confirmation with the ICE results that "You will get the free voucher"? I got one when I did the DB2 free voucher test but not for 157 today.

Today Morning I passed Pre-assessment IBM 158 exam. But when I finished the exam it just showed me the result , it did not tell me anything about voucher. Can Anyone please tell me when did you come to know about the voucher? That you received after sometime in email? Even after completing the exam I have not received any email from IBM yet.
Thanks,
Chintan.

My experience with IBM and their free voucher programs is that they don't print some kind of 'congratulations' message at the time. You just need to be patient and they'll email it to you in due time.

I dropped them an email yesterday (as I've taken and passed several exams since last Wednesday) to ask. I haven't heard back yet - I suspect it's just backed up.

Theodore,
i got the email from my company that ibm issued 1000 more free vouchers for websphere and xml.
thus, total free vouchers are not 1000 but 2000.

Just heard back from IBM - they are a bit behind on sending out vouchers, but are expecting them to all be out before 13 December 2002.
Eh.

I appeared for the pre-assessment test on 20th of November and passed it, I still have not heard from them about Free voucher. Do you think still there are any chances of getting it? or Whom should I write to inquire about status?
Thanks,
Chintan.

Chinton,
I too passed the sample test on 20th at 8PM and I inquired about the free voucher with IBM and they replied saying that the first 1000 vouchers were out by 10AM on the 20th and said that I will be getting my voucher before the 13th of december as they increased the vouchers by 1000.So you too should be getting the voucher by the 13th.

I also passed WebShepre Application Server and J2EE Connector exams but did not get those vouchers. This is probably because I already got XML and UML vouchers...

My vouchers are still filtering in from around the 20th, so be patient. They did say they'd send them all out before EOB tomorrow.

Hi, Don:
I think all 2000 free vouchers are gone by Dec. 13th.
BTW, your cert record is very impressive, 10 certs! I am wondering if they helped you landed a job. If you tell me no, then I will stop taking certs, its endless. Thanks.

Hi Holmes:
I think my certs helped. So I think certs help in general. But that is just my opinion.
Thanks for the information!

Hi, Don:
Last time they promised to give out 1000 vouchers first, then they added another 1000. I would suggest you to send a message to them ask about if they still have it. Its possible they will add another batch if more people ask for it ).
Your message encouraged me a bit anyway. Thanks.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
