Has anyone taken this exam for JavaScript? Is this good enough to verify your JS skills as well as prove it to your current or prospective employer?

That greatly depends upon the employer. For example, I put no stock at all in certifications. You'd need to be able to prove your mastery of JavaScript to me during the interview process.

If you feel that studying and taking the certification will prepare you for that then go for it as a personal learning tool.

Thanks for the reply. I'm used to taking SUN/Oracle exams for JAVA, so similarly I'm wondering if CIW (Certified Internet Web Professional) is a good benchmark for JS related exams or is there anything else better than that?

Again, it depends upon who are trying to impress. Some employers may be impressed with certifications, others (such as myself) may not.

That makes sense. My current employer and my client employer are very interested in Certifications. I'm not aware of any certifications for JavaScript. I just learnt that CIW is one such option. So, My intention of this question is, are there any other certifications available that are standard in the market other than CIW for Javascript. Thanks for understanding!

CIW is the only one I've heard of.
