Here’s a little story about why people using braindump web sites
should be ashamed of themselves: The MIS program at the university I
attended was a difficult one.  That doesn’t really explain it,
though.  Let’s see…the curriculum was an anvil and we
students were Wile E. Coyote.  There were a few MIS classes
that the rest of the business majors had to take.  These were
(of course) the easiest courses.  Still, people complained
about having to take them.  One of the courses was held at 9:00
AM and again at 10:30 AM.  The students worked very hard at
perfecting their cheating skills, because the 9:00 AM students were
selling test answers to the 10:30 AM students.

Here’s a little story about why people using braindump web sites
should be ashamed of themselves…

Of course the professor was told of the students’ misdeeds, so he
thought long and hard about how to solve this problem.  Or at
least he thought longer than he did when he decided to give two
different classes the same set of test answers.  To catch the
cheaters, the professor gave the same test to each class, but
rearranged the multiple-choice answers.  After giving the test
in the 10:30 AM class, the professor told the students that he knew
that they had been cheating.  The professor could prove it,
because many of the tests had answers that mirrored those on the
test in the 9:00 AM class.  He said that any student who
cheated should get up and leave.  An ‘F’ would be given to that
student for the semester and no more questions would be asked. 
Those that stayed and were found to have cheated would be expelled
from the university.  Half of the class got up and walked

One would be hard-pressed to argue that the school should have
let these people slide.  They got what they deserved. 
What they did was wrong and they should be ashamed of

The point?  People (lots of them) post test questions and
answers and trade links to braindump sites right out in the
open.  There are a million excuses:
“I’m just checking my
progress!” AND
“But I really am learning the material.”
“Well, you have to know the material to know if the braindump
answers are right or wrong.”

The university wasn’t taking any excuses.  Just like
those flunky college students, if you’re using braindumps, you’re
cheating.  You should be ashamed of yourself.
