i also did it way back and didn't like it then. multiple choice tests in
general suck for actual testing of real world skills and programming
ones suck even more. no candidate i have reviewed in ages has ever
mentioned brainbench nor has any client. so in my world it is a
non-entity. i know of several take home tests from clients that i review
or see the answers and they tell me much more than any 'cert' could do.
so does reviewing of existing code samples. there is no reason to even
consider a timed multiple choice test.
