Trying To Schedule Written Exam With Pearson VUE

Cisco recently decided to use Pearson VUE as their exclusive testing center.  I’ve used Prometric for every certification test I’ve ever taken, so this was my first time using Pearson VUE.  Or so I thought…I actually signed up for the CWNA (Certified Wireless Network Administrator) back in 2005, but never took the test.  I actually put the wrong date in my calendar and was a “no show”.  This cost me a couple of hundred dollars and the embarrassment of showing up on the wrong date.  I never did take that exam.  The good news is that I did have an old login for VUE, so I was able to get in and update my information and then schedule my CCIE written exam…..or not.
