Here’s the news, straight from Daniel Tarekegn on the Microsoft Born to Learn Blog for 12/6/2010:
As you may know, in August we launched the Microsoft Career Certification Exam Pack special offer. This offer provides significant discounts and value when students buy exams as a pack. Students who buy a 2-pack or 3-pack receive a 15% discount and those who purchase a 4-pack or 5-pack receive a 20% discount. Plus, Second Shots are included on each exam purchased in the pack.Today, we’re happy to announce that as an exclusive benefit to MCTs, you can now provide an additional 5% discount to your students on the 2,3,4 and 5-pack Microsoft Career Certification Exam Packs. This offer, only available through Learning Rewards, increases the discount on the 2 and 3 exam packs to 20% and the discount on the 4 and 5 exam packs to 25%.
Translation: you only get the extra 5% if you know a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) who has access to discount vouchers, or if you attend a training class at a Microsoft Learning Partner location (where instructors must be MCTs to get in front of the classroom). But the savings are pretty substantial, so you should probably check around to see if you know somebody appropriate if you’re planning to take 2 or more exams in the next year.
