The question of whether a cert or a degree is "better" has been
periodically
asked  in various forms and permutations in this newsgroup for years.  I
seem to remember that only a few years ago this question was a subject
of
furious debate, with each side having its fair share of proponents, and
the
certs having a large and vocal share of champions.  Now I see that there
is
a near-consensus that the degree is "better",  by a ratio of almost
10:1.
Things have definitely changed.

Yes, your observation is spot on. Instead of jobs being handed out to
anyone that could spell Cisco (dot.com days) the HR folks nowadays have
a long shopping list of requirements for their resume scan. The current
list often includes a 4-year technical degree along with numerous
certifications.
