Exactly - When I did Windows and .NET 4 Developer Certifications a few years ago - I took a preparation course from a 3rd party and they provided books and labs. But I never thought that the exams would be that hard… Reading and working through 1000 books won't help much, you really need practical experience as a professional developer because the "Questions" are kind of complex Scenarios you have to suggest solutions. Though I don't know if it's the same with other certifications, anyone who says these certifications are not worth the paper has no clue! All other certified developers I ever met were really good - and drop rate was 60% when I managed to make it (the course and the exams cost 12k Euro if you pass or not....)
