I am kind of new at this certification thing. I live in Japan and my friend suggested that I take the Information Technology Passport Examination sponsored by the Information-Technology Promotion Agency. Apparently in Japan it is a pretty standard well-known exam for certification of basic knowledge. I am just wondering how well that test is known in America. If I pass a test in Japan and then travel to the U.S. and tell people that I passed this exam, and no one in the U.S. has heard of it, it is kind of a waste of time and money to take the exam, don't you think? How well known and recognized is this test in the U.S.?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
