It's taking too long! This certification is difficult! Too many specs!
Certifications is inferior to experience. Just by having a certification, does not qualify you for a job (I read it somewhere in a survey of hiring mgrs.) You can get 100% without writing a single line nor troubleshooting anything! That is what I'm planning to do! I work in telecom and don't need cert or learning web services.
I do it for fun!
I found that the best way to learn something is to get certified in it.
Working in technology should be fun and not a burden. It keeps changing and you get burned out if you think in monetary terms.
