I beleive that these coupon numbers are only valid for subscription customers only.
Here's a hot tip. Until December 31, 2009 you can get a free CSWA or CSWP test from SolidWorks by using this coupon:

All coupons are limited to one per email. You recieve 1 test for each seat of SolidWorks you have.
Deepak is indeed correct. You must be a subscription customer to use these numbers. One other thing I'd like to clarify. The company I work for, Samtec, Inc, has more than 40 licenses. Contrary to what I believed when I started my journey to become a CSWP (which I passed Saturday), that does not mean that I have 40 chances to pass the test for free. Each person (by email) only gets 1 free chance at the CSWA or the CSWP. If you use your coupon on the CSWA, you do not get another free chance at the CSWP.
Here's some more info on the CSWP exam.
You must redeem your coupon by December 31, 2009. You must take your test by July 31, 2009.
I also highly recommend you take segment 2 and 3 first. I found them much easier than segment 1. This gives you a chance to get a feel for how the exam is managed. Don't tell anyone, but I took the segment 1 first, and I did not pass it the first try... I made an error on question 4 which just happened to make my incorrect answer pretty close to one of the incorrect multiple choice questions. Question 5 was fill in the blank, then when I got to question 6 also multiple choice, there was no answer close to what was given. By that time the warning bell was going off and I was about out of time. You get 90 minutes to finish segment 1.
They tell you from the beginning that segment 1 is 6 questions long. I hope I'm not unduly helping people cheat on this exam, but I'm going to give the answer to the first question. The first question is multiple choice. A) yes or B) no. The question is (more or less) Are you ready to begin? I answered no and got it wrong. How can you possibly be ready for the most important test of your CSWP career??? Here's another little tip. The first question is worth a fat 0 points...
We've had quite a few emails overnight about the codes that Avelino gave us at the SLUG meeting. I'm putting together a training program for our Samtec associates who have little to no experience in SW. Later in July, I'll post my training material. Avelino will email me the presentation when he gets back to the office and I'll also post it for review.
So, if you scroll up, you'll see some instructions for how to use the coupon. You have until June 30 to use the 4 coupons I list below. On July 1, you can use them again. IMHO, it seems it's more important to SW to have CSWA's and CSWP's than it is to make $99 of each test. Also remember, when you put the CSWP test in the cart, put all 3 segments before applying the coupon. You know you did it right if it says you owe $0. Once you have purchased the tests using the coupons, they NEVER expire. You can have multiple tests available at one time.
If you can't wait until I post my training, I'll divulge a small secret Avelino gave me. On segment 1 of the CSWP, question 1 is are you ready. Questions 2, 4, and 6 are significant model updates. Questions 3 and are small tweaks to the previous model. Complete question 2, save this model. Complete Question 4, save this model. Complete Question 6, save this model. These are all multiple choice questions. If your answer is not spot on, you did something wrong. After you have your answer matching exactly one of the multiple choice answers for all 3 of these questions. Reload question 2's model, make the tweaks and enter the value for the answer. Repeat for question 5. You can only miss one of these questions and still pass. It will kick you in the seat of the pants. Make sure you can do this with no distractions. 90 minutes flies by.
