if they haven't changed their questions in the last 8 month and after they moved to Prometic portal, this might be a very interesting resource.

Hi, Saif
Maybe double check your indox, see if someone called "certad" sent you an email, if yes, that is the voucher. I thought the email was a juck mail first, nearly deleted it.

FYI
I just received my free voucher yesterday(20 Jan). I took the pre-test on 6 Jan. So it looks like it is taking around 2 weeks. Well at least I received it. Was getting a little worried that IBM may have discontinued.
V/R,
Kev

any mail with subject containing "FREE" word in it.
I took the pre-assement test again with a new official email and I got the
voucher with in a day.
Thanks a lot
