Offhand, I'd say "no". I've known an individual or two who got them (I have one from some time ago myself). It's kind of like the situation we have here in Florida with our school system. Everybody is studying to pass a test but they're not really learning anything. I remember one guy in particular that I worked with once that took a series of those. You'd have thought he might have some expertise in it (at the time it was NT administration). He passed a series of 5 tests, got certified as an NT administrator and was coming to me (an un-certified individual) for answers that should have been covered in the cert.

Don't study to pass a test, LEARN the stuff.
