Since I am reviewing Java, I've been thinking about getting certification too. It's hitting 2 birds with one stone. The only thing holding me back is the price. The exam is $330 USD. So by that, it's quite expensive. I am unemployed at the moment so that's a pretty steep price but I know how useful it'll be once I get that. Hopefully I'll find a way to get a discount so at least it won't be as high.
You just can't learn AI on the spot. There are also some prerequisite subjects or topics to learn. I have had most of the topics covered but still I will have to review it. Luckily, there is a huge group of people on Reddit who are sharing information and study guides, etc. The class has 150,000 students so I hope I do well enough. (AI Class Site)
Thanks to Stanford for offering such a program. Also, Thanks to LinkedIn's group on AI because through someone there I found out about this. I will have to ask if it's okay to put his name here (will update this). Thanks also to my good friend Richie Panganiban for answering a hell lot of my questions regarding the Java exam. Kudos to him for passing the exam!
An exciting few weeks ahead!
