Hit Me For Your Second Shot

C'mon and HIT ME!

I’m giving away Second Shot vouchers to ALL comers, good ANYWHERE in the world that MS exams can be taken. And if you hurry, you might win a FREE MS exam voucher!

What does Second Shot mean? If you fail to pass the exam on the first try, you get to take the same exam again, so long as you registered for the initial exam with an SS voucher.

To request your SS vouchers, just send the following info to

  • How many SS vouchers you want
  • What country you’re in (SS vouchers are specific to each country)
  • Your e-mail address

These Second Shot vouchers are good until June 30, 2010 for any Microsoft exam numbered starting with 070, which means they’re valid for the following types of exams:

  • IT Professional
  • Developer
  • Dynamics

But wait, there’s more!

I’ve also got five (5) vouchers good for a COMPLETELY FREE take of a Microsoft certification exam to give away. That’s a cool $125 you get to keep in your hip pocket if you land one!

If you want to get in the running for one of these, you need to hurry! Before 5p Pacific time on April 2, 2010 (Friday of next week), do the following:

  • Follow @ChrisRue on Twitter
  • As soon as @ChrisRue follows you, direct message a request for at least one second shot voucher (include the info mentioned above) to @ChrisRue.

Winners will be drawn at 5:30p Pacific time on April 2 from all eligible Twitter requests and announced on this website shortly thereafter (pending winner acceptance).

So c’mon and hit me for your Second Shot! And good luck!

  3. I think this not going to work.

    Only people you are following can DM you, this doesn’t work the other way around, you can not send a DM to a person who is not following you, even if you are one of the followers of that person. See:

    So, unless you are going to follow everybody who is following you, nobody is going to be able to sent you the DM. (unless you already following them)

  4. O Rob of little faith…

    I am following each new person on Twitter as they appear. And it’s been working like a champ so far.

    In fact, I’m following you now. :)
