Someone sent be a private message asking for the exam question, I deleted, but the same person resends me again the same message, this time, I decided to answer him.
Please try to work hard and deserve it. Whean you cheat and earn your certification, this will make the SCJP losing it's value

Here is the messaeg that this person has sent me(and I prefer not to say this person name) and my response to this person.

I would never do that, this is considered cheating. I think, it's better for you to study and work hard in order to pass the exam, thus you would deserve it, it's better than cheating.

Well done.
It's so stupid to try to cheat on a certification.
What's the point?
Go study to earn and deserve it.

Good sir Mamadou Tour�
you must have kicked that fellow...why do people cheat???
If one needs to qualify and stand on his legs,he/she must work hard upto there expectation...why to cheat and reach the goal? They are cheating themselves only!Who is going to loose...?why such people can not understand this simple thing..."Though once they will qualify an exam, but they are going to loose in future...Who will be the sufferer?

not only is it cheating, it is also illegal. While unlikely, jail time and fines are possible for anyone who distributes actual test questions.

The thing that bothers me is that a cheater probably never thought about the person who didn't get the job -- because he/she cheated and took that job. Oh well, I guess when the cheater gets fired, it will hopefully go to someone who deserves it.

Candidates that cheat usually dont pass the interview. If by chance they do make it in by some means, they usually dont stay in the job for long because they are not very productive.

There is not much being done to prevent such stuff to begin with. But that is a discussion in its own right. Well done Mamadou and good luck with your future exams
