Thank you guys for your reply. My intention was not that what you are taking about.I was looking for question pattern not the dumps.. Anyway I will read,learn and pass the exams on my own.

Regarding questioning style, there's some info available on the internet which is not in conflict with the NDA. Such as this post which I wrote a couple of years ago: http://blog.hoegaerden.be/2010/10/08/first-mcts-then-mcitp/

You should never use dumps to prepare for an exam. If you do that, not only will your certificate be worthless, indirectly you also give others who actually studied for the exam a bad reputation. Imagine you got the certificate without actually knowing what you're doing and on your next job interview you have a couple of technical guys asking you really annoying questions. You wouldn't be able to answer anything and they would probably start to wonder how you got the certificate. The best way to prepare is experience. To decide if your current knowledge on a certain topic is sufficient, have a look at the [Skills Measured][1] list for your exam. Make note of each keyword in that list that's not familiar to you yet, and concentrate your studies on that. Studying can involve reading a couple of articles, the Books Online, and trying it out yourself. You could also get a good book that covers your exam, in this case the books by **Itzik Ben Gan** should prove to be interesting. Also check out the books mentioned in the *Preparation Materials* through the link mentioned earlier. [1]: https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?id=70-433

And asking for dumps on a public web site with an email address that includes your name is a good way to get discovered by Microsoft or by future possible employers. Bad choice overall.

Also remember that dumps violate the NDA, which you have to agree to, to take the exam. If you get caught using dumps, all your certifications will be revoked, but you will also not be able to ever take certification exams again. You can get approved practise tests, again as Valentino has detailed, check the skills measured section of the exam and it will detail the approved traing material and links to MeasureUp where applicable for the practise tests.

There is no easy path in life, and that goes for any SQL server exam/cert. This is the exact reason that is creeping into the industry where CVs are loaded with cert's and when you interview these individuals there is NO work experience what so ever. Granted, they maybe "starting out" but IMO I am finding the SQL Server certs on the CV not worth the paper it is written on (unless it says MCM). I may have entered the firing line for this, but its my honest finding after carrying out 50+ interviews over 2 years.

Nope. Right there with you @sp_lock. I never even look at certifications, at all. If they're MCM, you'll know it. Anything else, I just don't care. I look for knowledge, demonstrated experience, willingness to learn, a good attitude. Certs are not on the list. And that's after carrying out hundreds of interviews over 20 years.

@Valentino Vranken, thanks, Did I make a mistake by asking the question? if Yes, is it going to affect my certification? if yes, what should I do now?
