I've given up on Brainbench. Ignoring the possibility that their
certification tests may not be all that useful, they never stopped spamming
me, so I refuse to help them with anything.

I went through their first test module (although using a mailinator
address after this testimonial from Skip) and I think "Beta" is
generous. Try "pre-alpha" - i marked nearly half (maybe more than half)
of the 20 questions as "no correct answer", and a number of the others
included sample code that stank to high heaven.

I also pointed out that "what does this code do?" type questions are
pretty pointless for a language that comes with an interactive
interpreter (I would actually be somewhat disappointed with any Python
programmer whose automatic reaction to such a question involving
deliberately obfuscated code *wasn't* to try it out on the nearest
interpreter prompt).
