I hear that people are talking about braindumps all the
time, what are those?
>Braindumps are lists of the actual questions taken from
the exam. There seems to be a large number of sites
offering them for a fee despite the powers-that-be
promising to crack down on these illegal operations. In
theory, if Microsoft shuts down one of these sites and
finds your details they could revoke your certification.
It's unlikely but the better reason not to go near them is
that they stop you from having to learn!
Would you classify Trnascender or MeasureUp as 'brain
dump' sites? If not, why?

No. These do not attempt to teach you the test questions verbatim. They
try to give you some challenging sample questions to help you learn the
Some of the questions might be on the test, but it won't be by design.
The real value in these is in their explanations of the answers - both
the right choices and the wrong choices. They help you to learn.

I'm not sure whether anyone else made it clear that braindumps depend on
people with good memories taking the tests and then writing down all the
questions after they leave the test site, violaing the NDA agreement they
made before they took the tests. People who use braindumps to prepare for
exams often know only memorized answers and don't really know or understand
the material the test covers.
Even so, if you fail an exam there is nothing to stop you from writing down
notes after you leave the test site so that you can study the areas you're
weak in and re-take the exam at a later date.
