Subject Re: Cassandra Certification

A friends friend developed the FreeBSD certification. It is a actually a
difficult process either you need to give thousands of dollars to a place
like prometrics or you need to have people across the world that can
administer the test. You also need to design and keep changing the test
because it is sad but people cheat all the time. Check Google for (ccna test
answers). Some companies even make businesses of helping you cheat/prepare.

It would be cool but the biggest problem is administering the test around
the us/world.

the answer.  It is probably one of the best tools in your toolbox.
