There are classes to help you score better in the SAT, MCSE, MCAT, YMCA,

These classes exist because of the form of the tests. If certification was designed so that candidates would have to demonstrate their ability in practical circumstances, then all that prep classes could do would be to help candidates learn to apply their abilities. And that would result in better writers, wouldn't it?
