I’m confused. How does one that scores in dollars, higher than numbers 3 through 15 only get an honorable mention? Or am I mis-reading what the point was, I thought the topic was top paying IT certifications… maybe it was by volume of people holding it as well… I’ll have to go read the original article…

I thought that too, Ken, when I first read the honorable mention list. They do state that those on the honorable mention list they only had a small sampling for.
