I got this certification in 2000 (I know it's been updated since). At
that time it was a good test of basic xml and xslt, Obviously many specs
have been released in the last two years. It was definitely basic.
I took it because my employer needed someone with an IBM technical
certification to qualify as an IBM partner. Presumably this was worth
one full day (half day reviewing XSLT and schema drafts, half day at the
test)of my time and US$150.
