I lost two of my certificates last year in the hurricans that hit the U.S. in Florida. I called Microsoft to get reprints and they said that since my certification was for server 2000 and that it had expired I would need to take some more test to get recertified. Oh was I mad! Then a friend at work told me about www.ntxstar.com and that he had bought reprints for some of his certificates and that they were great. We to my surprize they were great. In fact they were the one's on the wall in his office and I never knew they were reprints. He said he had learned along time ago to get reprints so he could put his originals in a safe place. Well I ordered mine and they are perfect. So I thought I'd pass along the information to the group. Please if your not already certified do not try and pull a fast one and order you a certificate. Employers do verify your certifications most of the time.
