Don’t take offense to the title – it is not meant as an accusation, but rather a question – not are you certifiable, but are you Microsoft certifiable? As Microsoft professionals we have all taken certification tests (otherwise you would not be a Microsoft MCSE, MCSA, MCDBA, MCTS, MCITP or MCSD), but do you retain the knowledge you learned for the test or does it evaporate after one good night’s sleep?
If you navigate to http://www.microsoft.com/click/areyoucertifiable/ you will find an amazing online quiz that will test your knowledge of Microsoft Technologies. You can clearly demonstrate your scintillating acumen of all things Active Directory and other such information and yes, you can even astound your friends and family with your arcane knowledge of Microsoft technologies. Do you want to confirm what you already thought you knew? Or do you just want the challenge of certification test without the actual stress of the test? If you answered yes to any of these (or all of them) – than I have the perfect challenge for you. If you thought your certification tests were difficult and challenging – wait until you try this one out!
What is nice about this test is you don’t have to subject yourself to Prometric, in fact you don’t have to register at all. You decide whether to be tested on Developer or IT Professional questions. You can also choose your own avatar (and here you thought Clippy was gone….. And just as you would find lifelines on a popular game show, you have three vouchers – such as Second Shot or TechNet, which you can use to assist in answering your questions). This is a fun and informative test – well worth your time to try out – and who knows, you just might learn something new as well!
