Effective May 1, Novell Inc. will raise its certification exam fees from $100 to $125. Novells test pricing page hadnt been updated to reflect the price increase as of press time, but a Novell spokesman confirmed the news, saying the price hike was caused by a need to defray the costs of administering the exam program. This is the first exam price increase in the past three years. Test vouchers can be purchased up until April 30. The vouchers allow people to take the Novell exams for the current $100 price through Oct. 31. To purchase vouchers, contact Novells authorized testing providers, VUE or Prometric. VUE North America is at 1-800-869-4101; Prometric North America can be contacted at 1-800-616-4101.
