    Hi there, I applied for one of these vouchers – but never got the email – on the website there’s a link to how to get back the lost voucher – but the link is wrong – don’t suppose you know what the real link is supposed to be? The link is on the bottom left… https://www.bsf01.com/creatives/prometric/Microsoft_TwoForOne/TwoForOne_Home.aspx

    I just requested vouchers for Windows 7 (Client), Windows Server 8 /Private Cloud, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 and they all arrived. Did you check your JUNK mail folder? The voucher number is also shown to you after the registration process i.e. it’s shown on the screen.

    You can request 5 vouchers per technology stream so request another one and note doen the voucher number when it’s displayed to you during the registration process.

    To be eligible for free SQL Server 2012 exam vouchers, you must sit one of the following SQL Server 2008 exams:

    1) Are these SQL Server 2012 free exam inlcudes whole SQL Server 2012 track i.e;
    (Exam : 461 + 462 + 463 = MCSA SQL Server 2012) or just a single paper of choice.

    2) Do this free voucher scheme applies to one those who have already taken Exam 70-433 before this offer.

    looking forward to hear from you.

      The voucher is for one exam only. This offer is not available to people who have passed SQL Server 2008 exams already.
