I've kind of been boycotting those exams since they watered them down right around the time of snow leopard . I held an a ACSA cert. Do you folks consider these exams worth anything other than warm and fuzzy feeling careerwise? Honestly curious because if so I might revisit my stance on that. I consider holding a CCE and a CJA as my premier certs at the moment.
The cert just means you passed an open book test.
The "Private Access code" gives you online access to the test, else you need go to an Apple Authorized Training Center to take a proctored test.
These tests are a good way to validate your familiarity with new OSes. Much like the model specific tests under ACMT.
The cert plus $1 gets you a Starbucks coffee. 🙂
