In addition, this free podcast on Advanced certification will inspire you. Hear a veteran tester describe:

  1. Why you shouldn’t fear the Advanced Level exam. As Tom says, “Why did I wait so long to take my first Advanced exam? I realized it really wasn’t that scary – it wasn’t that bad. And so then I got my next one, and my next one.”
  2. How to prepare for the exam, including two very important tips. After taking the Advanced exams, Tom concluded, “The exams are just made to try to determine, ‘Have you learned the material?’ Well if you learn the material, you’re going to pass the exam. Then you’re going to look back and go, ‘Well it wasn’t that tough.’” Learn his two tips.
  3. Why it’s important for your career – and your company – that you become Advanced Level certified. As Tom noted about his own career, “When I first came here, I was hired to be a test lead for our web enterprise and e-commerce side. But as I developed and got more certifications, they thought, ‘Well, maybe he could do this, too.’ And so I took on more responsibilities and worked my way up, so that now I’m managing the test efforts for five major enterprise-level areas that are critical areas.”
