The best way to prepare for your certification exam is to use legal and approved training materials. Many candidates try to look for shortcut by using braindumps and PDFs for their preparation. It is important to mention that these materials are usually not in your best interest. Apart from the fact that they are illegal, they are also not helping you to be better in your quest for knowledge to perform optimally in your work. Taking time to go through the course contents of a certificate does not only prepare you for the exam, it also goes a long a way to help you develop your skills, knowledge and expertise in topics under the certification examination.
It is also important to point out that there are some dangers that come with using illegal exam materials such as braindumps and PDFs. If is discovered that you have used any of these illegal materials for your exam preparation, Microsoft can withdraw or withhold your certification. You can also be barred from taking any credentials in the future. There is the tendency to believe that there is no way you can be discovered but remember, Microsoft has been in the business of offering certifications to professionals years before you start writing exams, so they know what they are doing.
