Learn the info, take the practice exams, and then move on to learning
from every other site, too. I can't imagine a 'certification' from an
automated test by an unofficiated company (w3 is a company, not an
organization) would help you get hired. Either yre a rockstar or yre
not. Don't get my wrong - I love the w3schools. I use them daily. I just
don't think their certs are worth a lot.
