Subject: LPI giving out FREE books, CDs for first 300 exam takers..


If you have been putting off taking LPI's first exam, DO NOT WAIT ANY LONGER!

If you missed our announcement last week, the sponsors of LPI have been extremely generous and provided a wonderful pool of incentives for us to distribute to people who have taken our exams... free books, full copies of distributions, penguins, rescue CDs and more...

There's a catch though... only the first 300 people get to dip into the prize pool this time around - AND 50 PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THE EXAM! And there are only a limited number (typically 50) of each prize available!

Check out the list (included below) or online at:


And then read more about the exam at:


And then sign up and take the exam!!

Don't wait... because once we hit the 300 mark, the prize pool will close until the next time we launch an exam!

(Note that people who have already taken the exam will be contacted within the next few weeks about how to claim their rewards.)

Thanks again to our sponsors for their support of this effort.

Regards, Dan
