    Passing the exam doesn't count as being certified. There are other criteria that are considered in order to be certified CISA, CISM, etc, thats why you need to complete an endorsement application.

    Also, people who pass those exams and get certified expect certain ROI (Return on Investment) from the new cert, usually in the ball park of $2,000 to $20,000, if you move jobs) This increase in money from a new job or a promotion more than justifies the cost of the exams and the maintenance fees.

    I pay $285 per year for CISSP and CCSP but my salary increase by $40,000 after 2 years of being certified, I don't mind the $285, which by the way is reimbursed by my company. If I get the CISM, i will have my company pay for it also. These are the small perks you need to look when looking for a new job. That way the money doesn't come out of your pocket and don't have to worry about fees.

    I don't mind the annual maintenance fees for my certs because I can just expense them to my employer :).

    If you show an exam results email, especially with a very old date, it’s obvious you aren’t certified. Plus why would you take the exam knowing full well that there are annual requirements?

    On top of what these peeps said, only you can determine if its valuable to your specific case. For example, while I spit on my CEH and CHFI, others need to keep it current as a job requirement. One size does not fit all.
