    will it take some time for it to show up in the system?  i tried to go register for it but the course was not listed.

    Since this is a beta exam, it shows up under Prometric as 71-625, you have to scroll down to see it.

    i see it now...  just one more followup.  how long will this free offer last?  my local testing center only has 2 days available currently listed and both are next week.  i was hoping to find a date a bit further off but dont want to wait too long where the free offer might expire.

    also would there be any recommended studying material (other than the e-learning courses listed in the link).  there are no official practice tests (the whole beta thing i assume).  just wondering what kind of questions would be asked since htpc can be alot of things.

    Checking for you, should be okay though as long as you get it scheduled while it's free.

    This beta is scheduled to run until Feb 15. There is a chance it will be extended another month after that, but right now Feb 15 is the cut off for it being free.

    Is this open to people in the UK as well ? also do you just use the code when you book?

    Yes, the code works almost worldwide. When you register for the exam at Prometric there will be an option to use a promotional code.

    I took mine, it was a bit trickier than I expected, now just to wait the 8 weeks until I find out if I pass Smiley

    I would definately recommend anyone to take the online courses and do this exam, its a lot of fun, I picked up a few things I didn't know either Smiley
