Would you do business with this company?

  1. Yes - it doesn't matter to me, as long as I get my voucher discount.

    Okay... let's throw a scenario out there:

    Let's say that you do business with a company that sells vouchers and practice exam+voucher bundles.

    ...but what if you discover that that company also owns a Website that sells braindumps, and could possibly own hundreds of other braindump sites listed under other names that can be tracked back to that company? Would you do business with them anymore or recommend them as a place to purchase vouchers?

    No

    I think braindumps, or tests that provide answers at the end are only good to those who have researched and studied the qualification and is ready to take the exam, unfortunatly there are those who would exploit this from the get go without doing any study, hench why I picked no, but personally I think some of those tests are good for certain circumstances

    Maybe I don't fully understand what a braindump is, but I thought it was a test, which gives answers at the end, and thought it might be a good final practise week or so before sitting the exam?

    A braindump is a test that is the actual questions you will get and the answers

    To my knowledge, Boson doesn't sell vouchers... and they DEFINITELY don't sell or have ties to braindumps! :)

    What I will say is this: I have been given knowledge about such a company. If the majority of you guys would rather know about a company like that, I'm quite sure that the discoverer of such information would go public with it.

    So... if you guys want to know... speak up.

    No... what you have defined is a legitimate practice exam, not a braindump.

    As GBL stated, a braindump is a copy of THE exam. Using them is cheating, and it can get you decertified for life. Check out the wealth of information on CertGuard to learn more.

    I've never been one for using vouchers, mainly because i usually get work to pay for the cost of the exams.

    The only vouchers I have ever used have been direct from MS.

    Ah I see, then no, I do not agree with braindumps at all for anyone who has not been certified. I think practise exams are good a few weeks before the examination, which are made up of "similar" questions, or re-worded questions, but not the exact questions that will appear in the exam. I wouldn't support such a company no matter how much discount they gave me on vouchers. All companys that provide braindumps should be named and shamed IMO

    The ONLY way I would see braindumps as a benefit, is by someone who is already certified - doing them out of curiousity or fun - nothing more, nothing less

    's alright then! :biggrin

    Braindumps are plain wrong - period. Even for ****s & giggles after the exams.

    What you're talking about are legit practice exams (Transcenders, Boson, PrepLogic etc) and they can be a very valuable asset in preparing for exams. I've used them in the past and found some to be very good - whilst others were sorely lacking.

    Wouldn't use them - would make me suspicious over the validity of their vouchers.

    BDs need stamped out because they devalue everything us lot (who study in a legit way) are striving towards. This is why you get arseholes like the guy who worked my place with a fake MCSE and the stupid ****er left the backup tapes in the hall to get thrown away by the cleaners and didn't know what a bloody Vlan was.

    This is what BDs do to the IT industry and why they need stamped out.
