It's a joke. I got the Photoshop 5.5 certification and... let's just say
I'm not the graphic design sort. I think they actually want you to pay
for these things now, too. I took a bunch of them when they were all
free. It was kinda fun. I'd never put them on a resume, though (although
maybe I should. Resumes don't get much thinner than mine ;\).

Here's what it has to say about me!

Name: Adobe Photoshop 5.5  Score: 3.66  Date: 2000-09-07  

Scored higher than 84% of all previous test takers.

Demonstrates a clear understanding of many advanced concepts within this
topic. Appears capable of mentoring others on most projects in this

Either the 84% number says something about their tests, the people that
take them, or I somehow missed my calling (I fall on the coding side,
not the designing side).

Oh well.
