    My problem is the people who make these lists often seem to have no idea about what it means to be in a busy job in the industry and pursue a certification legitimately.

    Many certifications require 1-2 years study to obtain, its not a shopping list you can add to your CV every 10 minutes.

    All these lists do is trivialise the issues around certification and IT education.

    Do not look at things like this to help with your career path. Think about what areas of IT you are interested in and see a good future in and work towards getting experience and certification in that area.
