----------------------------------------------------------

1) TOTAL NUMBER SOLD UP TO NOW

First of all, thanks to all of you who have already picked
up your copy. Like we always do, we share the results. This 
MCSE special really is a M E G A H I T. You people definitely 
surprised MacMillan Publishing. We are the biggest and fastest 
buyer of all. All of you that bought early, you were right 
because stock is indeed going to run out in a few days. I just 
spoke with the Executive Publisher yesterday. He was thrilled 
with the 1,700 units that were bought already!

Here is the response of one of you that ordered early:

"Hi!
I've just received the MCSE Complete v1.1 Kit and it's great! 
I could not wait to give it a test drive and the exams and 
visuals are superb. A very nice package indeed and I'll surely 
be on my way to getting my MCSE Certification ASAP! Thanks again 
for all your help and attention. Keep up the good work!
Mario Puente"

If you want your copy within the next week, order now. Otherwise
you will have to wait a month or more for the next print run to
come out: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/mcsecomp.htm
If you have ordered in the last 5 days, we shipped another batch
of 300 yesterday, so give it a few more days.
-----------------------------

2) WIN95 AND EXCHANGE EXAM UPDATE - SEND IN REGCARD!

As some of you correctly noted, on the packaging it states the 
Exchange exam is V5.5, but if you install that elective it's V5.0. 
This is an error in the printing of the packaging and you will get 
the Exchange V5.5 sent to you for FREE as an update. 

They will be ready with everything by the week of August 17th. The
new 70-64 exam is already done, and they are now "mapping" the 
questions to the content for the Exchange 5.5 module.

Any customer who returns the Upgrade Card for the 70-64 exam will 
receive a new CD-ROM with a complete install of MCSE Complete, with 
both the 70-64 exam and the new Exchange 5.5 exam added to the mix.

This means you _H_A_V_E_ TO SEND IN the registration card that is 
in your box!
-----------------------------

3) FIRST ONE THAT PASSES FULL MCSE GETS $1000 FREE SOFTWARE

This is an encouragement and a game to essentially get your MCSE 
for free, including the exam fees. The first one pass their last
exam after today - July 9, 1998 - is to fax us back to 813-562-5199 
the proof you passed your last exam, your MCSE Complete order number 
and your full MCSE Cert (the cert sometimes takes a bit to get, but 
that is part of the game!) can go to our website and pick and choose 
software with a retail value of $1000. Does not matter which product. 
To check out what you can get, simply look over this list: 
http://www.sunbelt-software.com/category_search.htm
We'll feature the winner in one of the next newsletters.
-----------------------------

4) NEW LOW COST EXAMS IN THE PIPELINE

Once you are an MCSE Complete customer, you are eligible to get
updates of exams, and new exams for rock bottom prices. MacMillan
owns the content of all these exams and is continuously creating
new books for the new exams. All these are New Riders books and
100% Microsoft certified, so the courses you get on the CD's are too.

A 250 million dollar publisher like MacMillan that decides to get 
into the Computer Based Training, changes the whole game for the
other competitors. Suddenly all of this stuff is no more expensive
than a book! You can get it via the Sunbelt On-line Shop, keep 
yourself up to date and your certification in place for very little 
money. Another reason to get that kit. One of the coming exams is 
IIS that you would be able to pick up the same way. (no date is 
announced yet). This is also a way to get and stay certified for 
MCSE+Internet.
-----------------------------

5) HOW DOES IT WORK WITH THE ELECTIVES?

Quite simple actually. You get ALL of them on the CD. When you
install the CD, you are requested to choose two. Then you continue
and complete the install. You'll have these two electives on your
MCSE modules list and study them from there. And to immediately answer
the question you now have in your head, this means that if you would 
reistall on another machine, you could choose the other electives.
Here is the full list with the 5 current Electives:

-----------------------------

6) I WANT TO GET MY FREE RECOVERNT, HOW?

We just sent an email to 1,400 of you how to get it. It's clicking
on the revolving icon of a quarter on the MCSE page and enter your
username - password. You can get these from the customer support rep
of the online shop. Send an email to [email protected]
to get your username - password and download the full copy. In your
email please refer to your online shop order number, or the number
that was on your packing slip or airbill.
-----------------------------

7) I CANNOT ORDER BY CREDIT CARD, WHAT NOW?

Either the online-shop could not except your order, (there are a few
reasons this might occur, 99% of them not your fault at all) or you 
are not able to use your card on the 'net. In that case you need to 
order by fax. Send an email to [email protected] . They 
will email you back a form you need to print, fill out and fax to
813-562-5199.

Have Fun and do well!!

Warm regards,

Stu Sjouwerman
