    WGU students, how did this exam compare to the WGU practice exam and study materials for it? The material for 1D0-510 as presented at WGU looks quite broad with business and technology mixed together but the test reports above make it sound terribly easy.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry to bother you with my question, I actually just signed up for that

    I am interested in getting this certification but I am only a Social Media Specialist. My background is more web marketing so I am not a pro in Javascript, databases or web design. Do you think it would be ok for me to do it?

    Also, when you are passing the exam, can you have your notes?

    Thanks!

    Notes are not allowed during the test. This could be a good certificate for you if you want to validate some general and baseline knowledge. You do not need to know a lot about javascript, databases or web design, especially not in depth.

    IMHO, once you read that guide with your HTML knowledge you already possess you can probably schedule the exam the next day and pass. It is that easy. If you wanted to prepare for those Master CIW certs, after 1D0-510, get uCertify for those exams. (Not for 510 though...it was easy enough.) uCertify helped me for the 435 exam (Javascript). It's now replaced by the 635 but I believe uCertify does have kits for that exam by now.

    Many of us take CIW exams because we're in WGU or are Alumni. Otherwise, we'd never bother...lol.

    Completely agree. CIW tests were not very useful as far as I'm concerned. I couldn't find any study material (specifically) for them except for the poor material they provide. Nevertheless, not tough to pass at all. Just not very useful at all. I can't see how having the cert will do much for you if you know what I mean.

    Thank you for your comments guys. Is there something more useful for me then?

    In your opinion, this cert is not well recognized and I won't really need it for my job?

    Thanks

    I took the exam last year, before I started WGU. Its definitely a basic cert and one that won't grace the page of my resume. That being said, there is some good information in it. Knowing what is going on behind the scenes and having some basic knowledge is useful.

    Amazon has the version 4 book, which will have about 90% of what you need to know.
    Amazon.com: CIW: Foundations Study Guide (Exam 1D0-410) (9780782140811): Patrick T. Lane, William Sodeman, Emmett Dulaney: Books

    Check out this site for some basics on HTML v5.

    CIW Foundations Study Notes

    A nice site with tutorials
    TheNewBoston - Free Educational Video Tutorials on Computer Programming, Adobe Software, Computer Science and More!

    If you choose to go with this cert, I'd use notepad++ for your HTML practice.
    Notepad++ v6.1.5 - Current Version

    Notepad++ is great for heavy editing, but you might also want some sort of HTML editing software that will let you switch back and forth between preview modes. I liked Claris Home Page and some package IBM was selling for a while. The Seamonkey suite is probably the closest readily available Open Source (and recent) equivalent. There's also Microsoft Expression Web, which you used to be able to get free via WGU.

    It's not to say they're not useful. It's if they're relevant to the job market. Not to say there aren't any job postings requesting the certs but you're more likely to see Cisco, CompTIA, Microsoft, SANs, ISC, Linux-related, etc.

    Most of the posts on this board that discuss obtaining a CIW certification are related to WGU students.

    So I ended up rescheduling because I chickened out and took the exam today. I passed! I didn't even read the mcmcse guide or the coursework... feel like I should've but been busy with life.

    As promised, I feel obliged to state:

    erpadmin was right.

    I passed CIW Web foundations today. The WGU material is definitely overkill if you have any previous IT experience.

    I have decided to study for the Web Foundation Associate after all! I bought the book you suggested me. (CIW: Foundations Study Guide)

    They are actually implementing a new test 1D0-610 starting on December 1rst. Shoud I be worried? They say they will change things from exam 1D0-510 to be more « web 2.0 ». I wonder what that means... (Social Media?)

    Anyway I am guessing Ucertify will apply theses changes to their course? You guys said it was great to be 100% sure to pass the test. Since I don't know much about this certification (besides web marketing) I think that would be great to buy it to practice before the final exam!

    After buying the prepkit test I would advise you to stay away from it and from uCertify.

    Entire sections are missing in the course and uCertify will never reply to your inquiries. I sent them many emails and they just don't care. I have been waiting since January and they didn't do anything beside telling me they will update the course in two months. (!)

    Default New to CIW

    Hi

    Am totally new to CIW certifications. ASpiring to learn HTML/CSS/Javascript in Pluralsight and wanted to write down certifications from CIW foundation to the end. Please help in clarifying the foll. questions :, THanks in advance,

    1)CIW 1D0-610 as web foundation associate certification, But I see there are discussions about web foundation 510? I wanted to knw how to search for web foundation? Is it 510 or 610 ? Where to get the materials/Study guide to score decent marks in the exam?
    2) To start with, which is the best one and how to go about it? For exa:- Web foundation ass has got three separate courses like Internet,Site Development and Network...Should I take them separetly or I can do it at once which is Id0-610?

    Also, I need a idea about the preparation time to finish each certi or atleast the web foundation ass. FYI, I have done MS (IT) in 2005 ( pretty long time).

    I would really appreciate, if you could help me regarding this.
