I'm curious how many people out there have taken the WebFocus certification test? Or are planning on doing the program? Anyone?This message has been edited. Last edited by: Kerry,
program is 4 courses (or was, they may have changed it) and the courses are always valuable to take. but they're very heavy on GUI, and that's frustrating for developers, because you can't see where the files are actually going, in the underlying directory structure.
and the exam is 60 questions, 3 minutes per question.and very disorganized. a lot of questions on report painter which i've never used or known anyone, except ibi instructors,who used. and question #60 is completely unreadable. the test looks like it was an assemblage of questions from around the company, and slung together by a non-focus person, without editing into one voice.
and to make matters worse, the certificate you get from BrainBench doesn't say webfocus and doesn't say information builders anywhere on it.
and if you go to the Brainbench site and search for the exam, using webfocus and/or ibi, you won't find it. so, imho, the exam is waste. but the courses are valuable.
oh yeah, and the exam costs 50 bucks...so just hope you don't get disconnected
Is this still $50 bucks? I have seen it $50 in 2009 but when I see today, its $250...??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can someone confirm this?

susannah's description of the program is very disconcerting and discouraging. I am interested in taking it but not if it hasn't improved!
It would be nice to get feedback from Information Builders.
