This is one of the blogs that I saved from the Blog Clean Up! This question is one that comes up from anyone who has never booked an exam before. So, I will provide a step by step with screen shots on how to book your Microsoft exam.

Note: In some cases, I have removed personal details.

How to Book your Microsoft Exam

 Go to

Start to book your Microsoft exam

Click the Schedule, Reschedule, Cancel, or Confirm an Exam link


Click Schedule an Appointment


Select your Country and Province then Click Next


Click Next


Read details and click Next


Select the exam you want to take, in my case the 70-649 exam

Select the Language and Currencies of how you are going to pay for this exam then click Next

Note Exam centres are filtered by Country and Province and then sorted by City name, after that they are randomly sorted.


Find the Exam centre that you plan on taking the exam at and then click Schedule Appointment.


If you are a new user click the appropriate link, else logon using your email address and password.


Select date and time for your exam, click Next


If you are using a voucher to pay or using the 2nd shot voucher code click the YES link



Click Validate

Pet Peeve: There is no message telling you that your voucher code is correct! This is particularly annoying when you are using the 2nd shot voucher codes as there will be NO indication that the code has been accepted! In my case I am using a fully paid for exam voucher.


Note: I’m only showing part of the screen, there is just to much info on this screen plus I am removing all the personal data too.

Make sure your email address is correct.


Read the data privacy notice and select I agree

Click Commit Registration


Review the final Confirmation screen. Feel free to print this page.

You will receive an email confirmation within the hour or so.
