I host a couple of instances with Rackspace and generally go back and forth between them and AWS when I need an instance to do some testing. I was getting pestered by their emails every couple of weeks to check out their CloudU Certification program. I decided to check it out, but it’s unfortunate that I won’t get that 30 minutes of my life back.
The program is set up as 10 lessons, each with a 10 question quiz at the end, followed by a 50 question final exam. Luckily, you can skip the lessons and just take the quizzes, which is what I did. The questions are fairly trivial and unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock since 2003, you should have no trouble answering them. The final exam was just a regurgitation of questions you’ve already seen.
