Found this on slickdeals earlier today. Microsoft is offering a free voucher to take their Programming in HTML5 with JavaScript and CSS3 Exam.

Find a local testing site at this URL: https://www.prometric.com/en-us/clients/Microsoft/pages/landing.aspx

Register for an exam and enter the promo code HTMLJMP

Seems too good to be true. Has anyone heard of Prometric? Why would they be offering a £99 exam for free?

Prometric is one of the largest certification testing companies there is. Microsoft is the one giving the test away: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/offers/html5.aspx.

Yes, MS gives the exam for free, Prometric is just the testing center. I got my Server 2008 Active Directory configuring cert free through a similar offer.

I also got my A+ Cert from Prometric, its the main testing center (at least in the US)for these types of certs.
