Pearson Vue no longer offering Microsoft exams

You can only book to do Microsoft certification exams through Pearson Vue until the end of August. From then on, you have to choose Prometric. More information can be read at Vue’s website: http://vue.com/ms/testtakerfaq.pdf

Personally, I find this a real shame. It’s good for us candidates to have a choice. I’ve preferred Vue over Prometric in recent years, and it was Vue who provided exams at TechEd Australia. I don’t know the reasons why Microsoft have taken this approach, but will post again once I have found out something (assuming the information I find out is public).

  1. They mention this in a press release here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcpexams/register/edp/default.mspx

    and it was also talked about a little bit on Trika’s MS Learning blog site. http://blogs.msdn.com/trika/archive/2007/07/06/microsoft-learning-announces-prometric-as-exam-provider.aspx

    I wish it wasn’t the case. The VUE locations around me are much better than Prometric for scheduling times and condition of their testing machines. :(

  2. I plan to talk to Trika about it when I meet her in a couple of weeks’ time. I’ve been bad at reading blogs over the past couple of weeks, and had missed the news. Thanks for the links Aaron.
