    Don't bother, Not only is W3Schools seriously out of date (so half of it's information is irrelevant or incorrect) but their exams are in no way recognised by the web design industry (in fact their seen as a bit of a joke). Save yourself the money and don't bother getting the certificates they offer, their worthless.

    I believe what the other posters were implying was that nobody is going to hire you b/c of a w3Schools exam. I personally feel there is a bunch of good reference material on the w3Schools site. I feel some of their 'try it yourself' examples are helpful to newbies. I would point a newbie or someone learning a new language/technology there as a learning/reference point. Not as their sole source of learning. But as far as the exam, other than just doing it for yourself it won't gain you much of anything. It's not really something you could put on a resume.... unless where you were applying was a bit 'slow'.

    rustybuddy, don't confuse W3Schools with the W3C, in no way are they related, nor do they have anything to-do with each other.

    Yup, sorry. Been running stuff through the validator today, hands didn't type what the mind was thinking. Edited the post to reflect.
