    Cheaters turn to Web to game cerification system

    Cheaters turn to Web to game cerification system
    http://www.sdtimes.com/link/33359

    Anyone post copyrighted information for certification exams to a web site?
    Do you feel that posting them or using them is justified?

    This has been on ongoing problem for years and why I dismiss certifications and rely upon detailed interviews and skill examinations.

    At least I leaned what posters in these forums mean when they ask for "dumps" (presumably the same thing as "brain dumps.")

    Again, as we say in Scuba... "Certified does not mean Qualified".

    Also, I recently had the opposite happen to me. I had a company send me a set of "questions" to answer about my knowledge of Testing. Some of the questions looked familiar, as in seen here a couple of times and on another "answer" site that was referenced on a post here. I went and found the answer site (http://www.qaquestions.com/) again and let the prospective employer know I knew where "their questions" were coming from.

    I had already answered the vast majority of the questions with my own knowledge, and corrected the answer site in areas I didn't agree with in terminology or methodology. It peeved me enough to do it.

    Anyway... I haven't heard back about the potential job and don't really care. If they have to use that as a screening tool then I don't care to waste my time working for them. Too much potential headache. I've been around too long for that crap.
