How to book your Microsoft exam

This question is one that comes up from anyone who has never booked an exam before. So I will provide a step by step with screen shots on how to book your exam.

Note: In some cases I have removed personal details.

Select the exam you want to take, in my case the 70-649 exam

Select the Language and Currencies of how you are going to pay for this exam then click Next

Note Exam centres are filtered by Country and Province and then sorted by City name, after that they are randomly sorted.

Click Validate

 

Pet Peeve: There is no message telling you that your voucher code is correct! This is particularly annoying when you are using the 2nd shot voucher codes as there will be NO indication that the code has been accepted! In my case I am using a fully paid for exam voucher.

Note: I’m only showing part of the screen, there is just to much info on this screen plus I am removing all the personal data too.

Make sure your email address is correct.

You will receive an email confirmation within the hour or so.

Ensure the following are correct. (They are marked with arrows above)  

  • Address
  • Both Telephone numbers
  • Site Name and address
  • Date and Time

If any of these are incorrect call Prometric right away and get them correct it. If you don’t receive the email with a reasonable period of time you can confirm your registration via the web site or you can call Prometric and confirm the exam.

 

Congratulations on booking your first exam!
