Hi Ahmed - I didn't have any problem finding the codes. Log in from the option in the blue "Welcome" title bar, then select Member benefits and the discount codes are listed there.

It says that
IBM is pleased to announce that through Dec. 31, 2004, all registered Global WebSphere Community members, can obtain a 20% discount on the Prometric certification test fee of all appended CICS, Technology, WebSphere, and XML certification tests.


I don't know if that means you have to get the voucher by Dec 31st, or sit the exam. I have emailed to ask.

It is indeed great news that IBM is giving 20% off. I am now giving serious thought to certify. But I am not able to decide which certification I should go for 287/340/341.

Any suggestion is welcome.
Thanks in Advance

It depends on what skill set you wanna get into.

For 287, it focuses on how we use WSAD to develop J2EE applications, which is a developer track.

For 340 and 341, it focuses on how we maintain the WAS, including configuration, troubleshooting problems, etc, which is a system admin track.
