the problems with the Brainbench certification is that you can cheat and the questions asked require no "understanding" of the topic, merely a certain knowlege of it - THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE! The perl test certainly sucked (I took it once, got bored and failed).

In general I wouldn't trust someone on the basis of a brainbench certification...

/me, Brainbench certified in...

Master Computer Electronics (Haven't done any for years.)
Master High IT Aptitude (Yeah right! How good am I at Perl?)
Master Math Fundamentals (This is probably fair enough...)
Written French (Way too low a mark...)
Physiology (I failed medicine at University!)
Biochemistry (Okay, so I'm a chemist!)
