Cheating Part 6: "The Lone Beneficiary" (And It's Not You)

Isn’t in ironic that the only real beneficiary of cheating are those who steal test content (test questions) and sell or give them away. And for what…to earn money from ad traffic on their website?

Because these people operate outside of the law, Oracle does pursue prosecution of the authors, operators, and distributors of dump sites and illegal information-sharing. This unfortunately can be a lengthy process, as these shady operators will often move their sites around attempting to outrun legal prosecution.

Have you ever submitted real exam questions to a forum or dump site? Would you agree or disagree that this devalues your own efforts and credential? Did you know that when you agree to Oracle’s Candidate Agreement you agree not to share exam content?

Comments:

Thanks so much for the thought provoking 6-part series. At the end of day, individuals should remember that certification exams are not 'exams' in the true sense. Certification does not provide a degree or diploma. A degree or diploma provides an entry to the job market - it confirms the potential of the individual to perform on the job. A certification helps one succeed on the job. Certification for confirms a superior skill level already achieved. By cheating as in a exam, it is nothing but a devalue of skill level to potential. One cannot copy life experiences - so why copy for the exam? Live your life true and once!
