I here many saying that brain dumps are cheats. I've personally been\nreferred to them as a student from my teachers.\n\nThey respond to the arguments against them in many different ways. One\ninteresting comment one of my teacher made was: How do you think Transcender\ngets their questions?\n\nAlso....\n\nI'm reading an Exam Cram book and the author states this:\n\n"You should also cruise the Web looking for "brain dumps" (recollections of\ntest topics and experiences recorded by others) to help you anticipate\ntopics you're likely to encounter on the test.\n\nTIP: You can't be sure that a brain dump's author can provide correct\nanswers. Therefore, use the questions to guide your studiesm, but never rely\non the answers in a brain dump to lead you to the truth. Double check\neverything you find in any brain dump.\n\n\nI know many users in these newsgroups are enemies of brain dumps (or at\nleast claim they are)...I would like to know...why do you consider\nbraindumps a cheat?
