    Default Free paper cert from Microsoft?

    hi all,

    recently i have completed my MCSA.. In 70-299, I got 962/1000.
    I have heard that If u get 90 percent marks in one paper, you get a free paper voucher from Microsoft..
    Is this true??

    I've scored over 900 several times and have not found this true.

    Microsoft doesn't sell the paper, they have a vendor who does it. The vendor charges $9.99 for the first and $.99 for the next 5.

    You can download them for free and print them out if you refuse to pad their pockets with more cash.

    700 or 1,000 they will allow you to buy a sheet of paper and list the credentials on your resume. Pride and bragging rights are the only difference.
