This is a really cool idea..
If you’ve ever considered taking a certification exam but aren’t sure if you’re ready, here’s a fun, risk-free way to practice – Are You Certifiable?, a new on-line game from Microsoft and Fuel Industries.
Choose an avatar, select your expertise, and pit yourself against other players from all over the world!
The game takes the form of a trivia show, but includes a broad range of technical questions geared towards one of two disciplines: Developer, or IT. Some of the questions appear to be taken straight from the pages of Microsoft Certification, so it looks like a good primer for someone preparing to take a MS Certification exam. Also, stay on the look out for “rogue” questions, usually in the form of trivia (does anyone know who invented the mouse?).
As soon as I can squeeze a moment from my copious spare time, I hope to see you out there.. perhaps from the spot above yours on the leaderboard. *g*
