Thomas Ptacek has a go at CISSP certification. My favourite line:
Is it prima facie unethical to offer to render life-or-death security services based on experience you can claim only by having read a Que '... in 21 days' book? Yes.This reminds me of a fellow at a former workplace of mine with an MCSE, who was forever asking me just how the registry worked. One can hope people doing the hiring recognize some acronyms as being worth exactly what they should be.
