The other day I took the certification exams for Revit Architecture. There are two exams to take to become professionally certified, a Associate exam and a Professional exam. I am happy to say that I was able to pass both on the first try without any problems. It would have been a sad day had I actually not passed the tests!
The tests are timed, but I had more than enough time to answer and review the questions a second time. The Associate test is written, mostly multiple choice and the professional exam is practical, meaning that you complete a exercise in Revit and then answer a question about it. I would recommend anyone that wants to validate their skills with Revit Architecture go ahead and take these exams.
Since we are so close to AU, I have another reason why is AU cool. At this years AU you can become certified for Free!!. Thats right I said free. I love free things. (especially food!)

Now for a quick tip
Do you know what the parameter highlighted in the image below does?
It allows a curtain wall to cut an opening in a wall if the curtain wall is drawn on top of the wall. This parameter is turned off by default in Revit so if you want a curtain wall to create a opening in a wall, turn it on. This can prevent warnings from appearing when you attempt to draw a curtain wall over a regular wall.
