I emailed the people at Prometric, the company that administers the exam, but I also just realized that my account history from the past 90 days won't qualify me since I just created the account today, and will have to wait another 90 days. I wish the whole process wasn't this confusing, so I would have signed up for My Client Center months ago.
As for exam just study this [google.com ] and take practice quizzes and you will do fine.
I just took it a month ago it wasn’t bad.
So this means that I entered my main Adwords account ID instead of the My Client Center ID (which I just signed up for).
No, go to your MCC look in the right hand corner "customer id" use this one when taking an exam. At least that what i did, it worked perfectly. not the original adwords id.
And I'm pretty sure the money that you spend with adwords before creating your MCC doesn't count towards fullfilling the spend requirement.
And yes, the Learning Center modules were very thorough and eductional, and the exam wasn't too difficult.
The exam is hard. You must study. You can not pass without reviewing all the modules and having a degree of proficiency in AdWords.
This is not a test like the Yahoo Ambassador test. This one as it is difficult and comprehensive means something when you pass it.
I study for it as a college exam. I took one to two months to review every module. I wrote notes during each module and then studyied for three days intensively and then passed the test with flying colors.
Don't try to fly by the seat of your pants on this one. But understand that the qualification that you do receive really means something to your potential clients and moves you into a sphere that will allow you to charge more and to gain new customers.
Certification has allowed my business to grow substantially and has really generated new income for my business.

I find this grossly unfair because I, the individual, passed the exam, not the company. I managed the required spend, so I had the experience to qualify for the exam. Am I suddenly "unqualified"? Has anyone else been in this situation?
