Dollar Sign Prometric Scheduling

I went to http://www.prometric.com/USMLE/default.htm

To search for seat availability the strange thing that they repeat march 2011 twice and there is not April 2011 choices after it there is may 2011 !

If i SCHEDULE IN MAY waiting to APRIL 2011 availability seats when I can change my exam date is it must be before 3 weeks without paying extra fee for re SCHEDULING exam ???

You have to pay $50 if you reschedule (31 days or less before your scheduled date)

You have to pay >$50 if you reschedule (5 days or less before your scheduled date).

They have recently changed the fees structure, see this USMLE News section

UPDATE: New Fees for Changing Appointments at Prometric Test Centers Effective January 1, 2011

(posted December 22, 2010; updated December 29, 2010)
Effective January 1, 2011, Prometric will charge a fee if USMLE examinees change testing appointments (e.g., reschedule, cancel, change test center location) at Prometric Test Centers thirty or fewer days before their scheduled test date. No fee is charged for changing testing appointments 31 or more days prior to the first day of the scheduled test.

The date that you change your appointment, using local time at the Regional Registration Center for the Prometric Testing Region, will determine whether you pay a fee and the amount of this fee:

If you change your appointment 31 or more days before (but not including) the first day of your scheduled test date, there is no fee.
If you change your appointment fewer than 31 days but more than 5 days before (but not including) the first day of your scheduled test date, there is a $50 fee.
If you change your appointment 5 or fewer days before (but not including) the first day of your scheduled test date, there is a higher fee. This fee varies by Prometric Testing Region and by exam.
is thats mean if i schedule 30 may 2011 my exam date then after that if i find a place in 20 April 2011 so i can reschedule it without paying money if i do it in April month i mean b4 31 day from 30 May (the 1st exam schedule)

No, 31 days before the intended exam date, means if you want April 20, then you should do that before March 19.

change fee, you must change your appointment 31 or more days before (but not including) the first day of your scheduled
test date.
