I’ve heard that some of you have had problems recently when taking one of our exams with performance-based testing (simulations). I posted a response to a forum somewhere a while ago about it, but maybe others of you have had the same problem. If this is you, I’m sorry, that is so lame. Everyone (us, Prometric) is working to make sure it’s not going to happen again.
Here’s what I posted earlier:
I’d like to apologize for the inconvenience on behalf of Microsoft and Prometric, both. We know your time is valuable, and I can imagine that it is very frustrating to have to reschedule these exams! Please know that we are definitely aware of the problem here at Microsoft, and working closely with Prometric, we’ve identified the root of the problem. The issue is a workstation configuration issue that is sporadic and just happening at a very few Prometric centers (it is just a few of you, unfortunately, who have run in to this), so we will not halt delivery of all simulation exams; we expect the resolution to happen in the very short term. You are doing the right thing in working with your Prometric representative to reschedule and sit your exam.
Again, please accept our apology for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we get this addressed in short order. Performance-based testing, like simulations, adds huge value to your exam experience and your certification and we want to make sure everything is operating like it should to give you the value you deserve.
