Do scores have any relevance besides personal gratification since the Certificate doesn't mention score?
How long does it usually take to receive the certificate after the examination is taken?
Thanks.

Gino,
Think much of it is bragging rights ...
Takes 3-4 weeks to receive the certificate.

But do scores really matter??? I have a friend that works as a college recruiter at an IT company, and he says that they never check anything like that. Do other companies, or is it like you said Jane, bragging rights?

I don't think the scores really matter to anyone other than the person taking the exam. You'd feel a lot better knowing you cleared the pass threshold by 20% than you would if you only just made it!
anyway I personally think just passing is enough to brag about! But I havn't done it yet (will be taking the exam in a few weeks) so maybe I'll change my mind when I'm done!
