I think it is valuable since it allows you to learn things through study and application that you may not have been previously exposed to while preparing for the test. The test is strictly theory now versus the first year when stained slides were submitted and there was zero theory. Given the rapid changes in histology with ISH, IHC, IFs and other molecular based testing I don't see how it could hurt you to earn this credential. I'm not sure how pays is differentiated in the market for this qualification, but I do know that I see more and more jobs, especially those for IHC that require it or it is highly desirable for the position.
