A new look Prometric site. Oh dear.

September 19, 2012

Anyone who takes Microsoft exams is familiar with the Prometric web site.  I haven’t taken a Microsoft test for a few months so I was pleased to see the web site has had a much needed overhaul.

The feeling didn’t last long however.  There is still no way of finding your nearest test centre based on address or post code and although the site seemed zippier on response than before, it still stopped working altogether half way through my booking.

New look? It’s a turd in a tuxedo in my opinion.

I’ll stick to phoning the test centre directly and booking that way.  It works better for me anyway as you don’t need to give 24 hours notice.  Just don’t expect your confirmation email to ever arrive as sadly the test centres have to book you in using Prometric!

It’s a shame Pearson stopped doing Microsoft exams, their web site is much nicer.  I was told they stopped doing Microsoft exams as there wasn’t enough money to be made on them.
