Howdy Ranchers,
I am about to purchase enthuware mock exam package. I downloaded and answered for sample test. (I could only score 41%)I have only one week for my scheduled exam. I got nice and tricky questions. So, I decided to buy their product. When I try to make the order there are two versions.
Desktop version & Web/Mobile version.
Web/Mobile is only available for 4 weeks of duration. Desktop version will be valid for 6 months of duration.

First, tell me, am I in a good position to take the exam within 8 days?(I read and followed OCA exam guide by jeanne boyarsky)

Second, if I'm good to go, which version should I wanna download? (what did you guys downloaded? desktop or Web/mobile)

With only 41% on the free sample test, there is no way you can pass the exam within 8 days. You have to postpone the exam for at least another month, because it's clear you need to do some additional studying.

I think most people opted/downloaded for the desktop version. And based on your current score on the sample test, you'll need the software to be valid for more than 1 month.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
Roel

Thanks Roel. I will re-schedule my exam. I'll lose my 20% . But It is more important to get through the exam than just to repeating it.

If you used the promotional code for a 20% discount, you can't reschedule your exam after December 31, 2015. So I guess you need to cancel, get a refund and book it again at full price.

Hi Jude,
The license for the desktop version does not expire. I see that it is mentioned clearly on the order page and also in FAQ http://enthuware.com/index.php/licensing/83-licenseexpiration
Could you please tell me where did you see that it expires in 6 months so that I can get it fixed?
Further, you always get a desktop license. The web access is optional.
Thank you,
Paul

I guess he probably misinterpreted the "getting support and free updates/upgrades up to 6 months" part.

yes. Bit of confusion. Sorry for that.
The Desktop license does not expire. You can use it as long as you need. However, free upgrades and support are available only up to 6 months after purchase so please keep your license safe in case you need it after 6 months. It cannot be retrieved from our server after six months of purchase and we do not provide any support after 6 months of purchase.


BTW; what you mean by this>
please keep your license safe in case you need it after 6 months
Anyway I'll go for desktop version as Roel suggested.
Thank you for your quick replies.
Appreciate it and love it.

The desktop license doesn't expire, so you can use it forever and ever. But after 6 months of purchase Enthuware doesn't provide any support. So if you need your license after 6 months of purchase (for some reason) and you have lost it, Enthuware can't help you to recuperate (recover) your license (and you'll need to purchase the license again if you want to use the desktop software).

The license key that is emailed to you is not machine bound. It can be used on any machine. You should not delete that email as it may come in handy if you change your machine or format it.
Within 6 months of purchase, ETS Viewer software can download the same key from our server just by entering your orderid and emailid but after 6 months it cannot do so because we keep customer information for 6 months only. Only option at this point is to enter the key manually. If you don't have it we can't help you.

Hth,
Paul.

This is not optional. You will get a desktop licence no matter what. What is optional is the web access.
