    A guy in my work took an MCP exam after basically cramming some brain dump .pdfs from a well known website. I wasn’t too chuffed when I saw a nice folder appear on the server called ‘study notes’ full of them!

    Anyways he wanders off to take the exam while I’m left in the office trying to get through a mountain of tech support calls. He returns later on and I asked how he got on, guess what? He failed! :twisted:

    Later on my boss came into the office and asked how ‘Dave’ got on in his exam, (I’m Daves boss, lucky me!) so I said ‘He didn’t pass’ to which my boss replies, “Ack, I think Dave has underestimated the amount of work goes into MCPs, he should pull his finger out”

    The conversation went on and I blurted out that its only a matter of time before he (Dave) passes because of the brain dump material he is using, how hard can it be to memorise some questions?!? :rolleyes:

    My boss goes quiet and says “If I was to offer you the chance to go on a 2 week MCSE course next week fully expensed with a guaranteed pass what would you say to me?” I said “I would probably tell you to f**k off”. My boss tells me that’s the answer he was looking for and walks out the office.

    I sit back down at my desk and the phone goes 5 mins later and it’s my boss, he said “Just for the record that’s the only time you can tell me to f**k off”, we both laughed! :biggrin

    Just thought I would share this story with everyone here who is studying for certs the honest way and there are some companies that have some integrity about the whole certification game! :biggrin
