    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.
    The new version is 610 but you can pass 510 until December 31, 2013. You can buy the CIW Foundations Study Guide CIW: Foundations Study Guide (Exam 1D0-410): Patrick T. Lane, William Sodeman, Emmett Dulaney: 9780782140811: Amazon.com: Books as it covers a lot from 510.

    Honnestly I bought this one and the one from CIW and it's very very similar. I am not sure they changed much on the 510 version compared to the 410.

    You can also find very cheap CIW Study Guide on Amazon and I think it covers everything. I have decided to go with the Internet Business Foundation instead of the CIW Foundation Associate one. Honnestly it's very network oriented with Bus, Star, hub, router etc. I had a very hard time trying to learn all that.

    This cert is not really about programming, there is a small part of HTML but very little regarding Javascript.

    If you feel very confident, I will just go for this cert instead of doing the 3. It's way more expensive. ($150 each) Instead of $150 for 610.

    If you decide to do them separately however, note that the Internet one is just 30 questions. I think that's the same for the 2 others when you do them separately. This one is fairly easy if you have a good understanding of Internet principles. I work in Web Marketing so I feel like I know a lot of the stuff already. However, studying the CIW guide takes time... I have been working on it for 2 months now. It's about 300 pages divided into 8 sections. I just want to score high.

    But when I studied for 610 it took me at least 3 months to figure out that I won't be able to score well with the network section.

    Hope that helps

    Thank you Puda for clarifying with answers. Since am new to this CIW and wanted to enter the industry as web developer,I am going to try get the study guide of CIW. Also, I am trying to take HTML/JAVASCRIPT/CSS in PLural sight . Can you tell me , is that all, I need to enter the industry or should I compete all the certs in CIW? Thanks for helping me.
    I got ID0-410 Questions from ********. Is it enough to read all the questions and answers from there,along with the guidance book? Will the same questions will be asked in the exam? Can you clarify it?
    Thanks again.

    If you end up with ************ when typing out resources, there's a good chance that resource is a dump. Validate your study materials against CertGuard | IT Certification Exam Security & Integrity

    That way, you know you have a legitimate resource. I used the 410 book for the 510 exam and then brushed up on HTML a bit. The 510 was not a hard exam.

    Honnestly doing the 610 is really for basic knowledge in web development. I am not sure this is the best way to enter the industry as a web developer. I would recommend you to go for a 2 year degree or a bachelor in web development to make sure your skills are recognized out there. I know it can be very expensive but IMO that's the best option.

    If you absolutely can't do that, I would recommend you to also look at Lynda.con which offers very good courses on web development. I got 5 certs from them in SEO and Analytics mostly and I found their courses very interesting. Also, note that if you follow the entire course you will be get automatically certified. Not a real challenge but Lynda is recognized no you will benefit from it.

    Also the best way to enter the industry would be to work as a freelancer for websites like odesk. It doesn't pay too well but if you have no prior experience that's a good idea. You can also go for an internship to get your foot in the door.
