Where are MySQL Certifications growing fastest?

MySQL's Certification exams are given in Pearson VUE test centers or at the MySQL Users Conference. Ignoring the numbers from the UC, the growth in exams taken last year was impressive. The Americas and EMEA grew at 25% and 26%. Pacific grew 91%. And in Japan we grew an amazing 166%!

The UC numbers are numbing by themselves. We will be printing in the neighborhood of 500+ exams to cover the six testing periods during the conference. Considering how exciting the speakers and presentations are, having that many people dedicate time in a relatively small room to sit demanding exams is impressive.
