Everybody missed a big link in this chain... THE
EMPLOYER!!!
If the employer looks only at certs and not at
experience that's stupid.
Of course, if the employer looks only at experience
and not at certs, that's also stupid because you can
be experienced in some systems and lack on others
because you didn't study them at all.
So, if the employers have the power to test the
candidates, THEY SHOULD DO SO. Let the candidates
prove what they can do in the particular case of the
employer systems and then choose from the best the one
with the most certs (if you have money to pay him and
if you plan to extend in the way he is certified) or
the one with less certs (this way you can drop the
salary and get loved by the big bosses :))

Have secure fun,
Dan

below, in an out of 10
scale for example:
 
    Total ROI
    Career Advancement   
    Industry Demand
    Raise Potential
 
    Suitable for what job/position (not an out of 10
answer of course :))   
 
I also want to know the material to study from.
 
Thanks a million.
