The short story here is that I had an interview with a company who valued the\nskill assessments of "provit.com" more then "microsoft.com". That is not how\nthey saw it but they didnâ€™t think it thru. Basically they said â€œthatâ€™s nice\nyou are certified but we want you to take our examâ€.\n\nWhat I am curious about is this. How much money does Microsoft spend\nperfecting their exam process? Clearly they pick questions and subject\nmatters they feel are important in a developer position and clearly that\ntakes time and money. I am more curious because I am thinking about basically\nadvertising the quality of certification when I am being interviewed because\nclearly there are a lot of companies who are completely clueless.
