I'm glad it's a rigorous test and that I failed it (by about 2% points). It's a 
real incentive to study, which has to make me more knowledgeable; and passing 
it will mean more.

By the way, did you know that for $10 you can take an assessment test which has 
the same level of difficulty as the certification exam? I'd like to see how 
many developers could pass the admin test.

I wonder if the high rate of failure is more indicative of:
- burnout at COMMON
- Instead of 20 years of experience they only have 1 year of experience, 
repeated 20 times.
- New hire sent to COMMON, took the spate of RPG classes and then tried 
the exam.

I hope they looked at that as something they need to learn and not 
- "There's too much emphasis on stuff that's not used in the 'real world'. 
 Who needs subroutines when you can put it all in the main body?"
- "Some people are just better at testing.  I have the experience."
- "Testing is discriminatory against the 
(white/asian/black/male/female/crossgender/your species here) person."
