Passed the ColdFusion 8 Certification Exam today. Scored a 95 and could not have done it without CF8 Exam Buster.
I have heard all the debate on whether or not to take the CF exam and I think most arguments against taking it are rubbish.
The real benefit of taking any exam is the fact that you get exposed to parts of the language that you never knew existed. Just studying for the exam helped me find tags, attributes, and functions I wouldn’t even have thought to look for. And, if you are a freelancer, it can only help to have this credential.
So, if you can pony up the $150 for the test and the $40 for Exam Buster, there is no reason why you shouldn’t take the exam. Just go through the Exam Buster tests until you consistently score in the 90’s and you are a lock to pass.
