Certification Tidbit: Have You Used a Brain Dump Site?

I don't know how many readers of MCPmag.com remember when we used to shun anyone coming into our corner of the certification universe who claimed to use a "brain dump" site to pass a Microsoft exam. I suspect it still holds true for the most part, but times change and desperate times sometimes call for desperate measures, especially when a certification can give a job seeker the edge against thousands for the few hundred IT jobs available. It has Redmond columnist Greg Shields wondering aloud if brain dumps might be "legitimate" learning tools in this day and age.

Give Greg's column a quick read, but come back here and answer me these questions: Have you ever used a brain dump to pass an exam? Are they acceptable methods for training and certification? Comment here.
