Apple will not come out with a Leopard test right after the OS launch. If you test now the test will certification will expire in a year anyway. Needless to say the hardware has been intel since Jan '05 and the test still hasn't changed. They basically have a great Tech site (gsx.apple.com) that has all the resources a tech needs. The test wants you to answer specifics on certain hardware quirks and certain apple-esque troubleshooting techniques. You can pay the $299.00 for the materials but you still won't get into GSX without being part of an Apple authorized reseller/service center. On top of that you'll need to take (3) tests at $150 a pop to be an ACDT and ACPT. Working on Macs using the GSX tools is really required.

If you got $750 to drop on tests and materials, go for it now, no use in waiting for Leopard test to come out. It'll be out 6mos to a year after shipping.

Otherwise wait until you join up with a Mac shop to have them foot the bill.
