The following post was made about 3 months ago, it seems equally
appropriate now:


Newsgroups: alt.certification.cisco
Subject: What's happening to this group?

Just in the last few days, the volume of messages in this group has more
than quadrupled.  Unless I'm seriously mistaken, most of the additional
volume is simply messages posing an exam question, without any context,
and various members' replies.  I think it's time for us all to stop &
think about this a minute.  Advice on study techniques, prep materials,
test-taking strategy and career direction is well within the pervue of
this discussion group.  I'm concerned that what we've been seeing lately
is something else all together.

While there has always been some discussion of questions, where those
questions come from, and how the responses are used makes a big
difference.  I think we may all want to ask:

1) Are these questions actual material that was stolen from a Cisco
exam? 2) Are our responses being used to create another "brain dump" for
cheating?

I hope it's not necessary to remind other participants that taking
actual Cisco questions out of an exam, or disclosing them to others is a
serious violation of the nondisclosure agreement, and can result in
permanent loss of certification. I sat 640-801 this afternoon.  (Yes, I
passed w/986, thankyou.)  What drew my attention to this situation was
realizing that at least one of the questions that was on the test had
just been posted here a few days ago.  (I won't say which one for
obvious reasons.)  In the past, I've felt free to share my insights
(when they occur) regarding others' questions.  Now, I'm not so sure.
I'm happy to contribute to another individual's understanding of a
technology I love, but I really don't want to contribute to a for-profit
venture that uses spam to sell cheating, particularly at the potential
peril of my own credentials.  I'd hope that most of you would feel the
same.

What I would suggest, is that those who wish to pose "test-like"
questions to the group should at least provide some context as a
courtesy.  Did you get this question from a study guide?  Did it come
from a practice test, and you think they've got the wrong answer?  Is it
the one that made you tear your hair out in the exam room, and that you
really shouldn't mention to us verbatim?  Are you going to use our
answers to improve your own understanding of the material, or are you
going to gather them up and try to sell them?  With a little context and
background, we can each make our own informed decision about offering
answers or not.  And we can preserve the usefulness of this forum,
without surrendering it to spammers & cheaters.

Re: problem on the physical layer???


I agree. Post the questions when you have really tried to answered
first. Besides, posting your previous work on the question will help a
lot to the discussion. Personally i feel that the knowledge should be
shared and a little help (maintaining the rules as much as you can) is
always welcome. Of course nobody wants to loose its certs.

[cutted some really good stuff]

Paul, I think that your response was very good. If I was aware of such
post, I would resend it here. The thing is that most people probably
feel the same and that's why there are so few answers to such questions.

This group is becomming more and more "answer my testking questions"....

Re: problem on the physical layer??? Attn: Paul Womar


Questions like these I get from mixed practise questions on different
websites. Thats my last step before takin an exam.
The answer thats seem suspicious to me I usually ask in the forum.

I don't know if these questions are gonna b or not gonna b in the exam, but
it just gives my mind something more to think about.

I guess there is nothing wrong with practising using the questions from the
web.

This is just a generalization. If you find a gun on the street (and not
buy it) and kill someone, does that mean you're not guilty for murder?

It's not that critical but I just had to say it. <G>
