Most certification exams are administered by VUE and Prometric testing centers. These 2 companies sell exam vouchers directly to certification candidates such as yourself. They also sell these vouchers in bulk to a few resellers/distributors. Because these resellers buy the large quantities of vouchers, they get a deep discount and pass some of their savings on to you.

After taking a look at their site, we think you will agree that it makes no sense to pay full price for vouchers ever again.
A couple of things to note:
The information presented above is not the only way to get discounted exam vouchers. Book publishers sometimes bundle an exam discount voucher with their books. Occasionally, they even offer free vouchers. Sometimes these are included during the whole life-cycle of the book, and other times they are limited time offers. To find out which books include vouchers, you will have to do some research and visit the publisher's site. The book descriptions will mention what is included with the book.
- Buying vouchers from GetCertify4Less is completely legal and safe.
- The amount of savings you will get varies depending on the certification.
- If you have questions about this program, read the FAQ at GetCertify4Less or contact them.
You will have to ask all parties involved to find out if you can use multiple offers together (e.g. if you wanted to use a discounted GetCertify4Less voucher with a discount included in a book).
