We have a fellow here that passed his Java certification test.
When given a Java assignment it turned out that he didn't know how to code 
in Java. 
He does know how to read and study a book so he can pass the certification 
tests.
He ended up in the same Java classes at IBM that I took.  I was following 
the RPG to Java roadmap list of courses.
I have not yet taken the certification test for Java but I can code 
circles around him.

An interesting thread was started on Slashdot about IT Certifications
(http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/10/06/0337209).

I'm curious as to how valuable certifications are in the System i market.
