(UPDATE) Beta Exam 71-169 --- Registration on hold for a bit...

UPDATED:  12/17/10 21:44 PT --- We've received widespread reports of the access code not being accepted by the reservation system or phone support.  Prometric has been contacted and we are working towards a resolution as quickly as possible.  I will update here once we have confirmation that the system is accepting registrations.  Thank you to everyone who has notified us of this issue and for your interest in the beta exam - we appreciate your patience while this is sorted out.

Best, Stephanie
