    Just as "chillin'" was a buzzword around college campuses at one point in time, "adaptive" was the buzzword in certification testing. If you use chillin' in a sentence today, you'll seem like a dinosaur, and if you still believe in adaptive testing, you better be real careful not to snag your bell-bottom pants on the 286 cables and unplug the 300 baud modem.

CompTIA was the sole holdout of note, though they never seemed to believe in it enough to apply it to any of their exams outside of the A+ realm. Not surprisingly, it just announced that with the next round of A+ exams, they are bidding farewell to the adaptive format and going back to linear. What is surprising, however, is the reason it gave as to why.
