UPDATE: Well……you might be able to use this promotion to take an exam that is not part of regaining an expired recertification. See details here: http://routemyworld.com/2009/01/28/free-retake-of-cisco-exams/
UPDATE: Aragoen Celtdra writes: “I spoke with Pearson Vue about this and the person I spoke with said that it’s only valid for re-certification.”
Oh poo! That does explains this line though: “All exams needed for a certification must be taken to gain back your certification.”
“Come Back 2009” Promotion
Here’s how to redeem your Cisco “Come Back 2009” Exam:
Register for an exam at full price. If you fail the exam, you may schedule a free retake of the same exam by entering the promotion code: COMEBACK2009 at the time of registration.
Offer only valid for Career Certifications and Specialization Exams (not valid on online exams or the CCDE Practical Exam – 352-011). NOTE: All exams needed for a certification must be taken to gain back your certification.
Unfortunately the CCIE lab exam is not covered, but if you’re taking your CCIE written or any of the CCNx exams, then this is a great promotion to take advantage of.
