Hi,
I bought the voucher with promotional code for a free re-take. When I scheduled for the exam, prometric web site did not accept the free re-take code. Test center asked me to call prometric and they said the code is not recognised. Has anyone tried using this promotional code while registering for the exam? I sent email to sun and have not heard back from them.

Thanks
Aruna

If I'm not mistaken the free retake promo already ended last June 30.

The promotional voucher should start with DS...If it is then you don't have to worry, register for exam with your voucher number. If you flunk then you can register for same exam again with the same voucher number.

Note both the exams can be taken in separate prometric centers.

I got a click to my blog from this post so I'm guessing that this post is still relevant to other Ranchers. (I hope this is not classified as waking up a zombie. )

If you are interested in the latest "Free Retake" promotions from Sun then please visit the site http://javacertification.info which is updated every time there are similar promotions or free beta exams.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

One other fairly important thing: MAKE SURE YOU ***ASK*** for the special retake promotions when these come around and you sign up. My company signed me up during the promotion and when I asked recently about the retake codes, the reply from Sun was:

"the priority code/promotion is not given automatically...you would have had to request it at the time."

Hard to believe this when the promotion was so highly publicized, but that is what we are being told. Nice!
