Fellas,\n\nI have to agree (as a newly minted MCP) that someone cheating on an exam\ndoes cheapen the cert, but I think the other side of the story is relevant\ntoo, that side being that while a resume full of Microsoft alphabet soup\nmight get someone in the door for an interview, I can't imagine how any IT\nManager would hire someone who's passed in the manner you describe.\n\nI can tell you from experience that I can pick out someone who knows what\nthey're talking about in the first 5 minutes. Someone who's used a\nbraindump only will know terms and definitions, but won't necessarily know\nhow the whole system works together. Could you imagine discussing AD with\nsomeone who has no experience and just used an exam cram? It'd stick out\nlike a sore thumb!\n\nPoint is, cheaters should be turned in, period. However, that individual\nwill most likely not be able to discuss most topics and in the end is only\nhurting themselves. I'd hire someone who didn't have a ton of experience,\nor very little, if they demonstrated initiative and a good understanding of\nhow to get around th technology.
