    Sorry Peter, those of us who took the exam signed an NDA, so we can’t say what’s on the exam.

    Exam? There’s an exam? With an NDA? I’m so horribly out of the loop with this software. I never know what the codename for the upcoming release is, I only learnt the option-home shortcut a few months ago (seriously regretting not having known that one four years ago.) I can’t type an expression worth a damn.. Rhubarb, rhubarb, mutter, mutter..

    Where can you take this exam, and does it cost any money?

    Also, what level of expertise would one need to have with After Effects in order to successfully pass it? Does it ask stupid questions like what menus you might find something under, or is it more practical questions like how would you accomplish a certain task?

    Seems like it might be something nice to put on my resume, but I don’t want to jump into it if I have no hope of passing. I feel quite comfortable with my knowledge of After Effects, but I’m just wondering if thats enough to get me through it.

    Exams cost US $150 to sit. In my experience, unless you are seeking employment as an instructor (for which certification is a requirement of the employer) a decent showreel will do way more than a logo on your resume ever will.

    I agree. The ACE is most useful in an instructional context.

    Reel, experience and personality are what counts in my book.
