First off I'm moving this to the Corner Cubical since it's not exactly a programming question. For more information on the MCSD Certification you can go here.

I am mixed on certifications, and so are a lot of programmers and employers. I feel some, as with MCSD, MCDE, Cisco Certifications and so on, and reputable certifications to have on your resume, I know mine have helped me in the past. The test is larger than you think, and you had better know your stuff before spending the money on the exam. Just my 2 :)

I would not use dumps. There are a couple downsides to them outside of it is cheating.

The first is you don't actually find out what you really know.

The second is a lot of folks just memorize the answer and there are rumors of Microsoft posting dumps with the wrong answers on them.

So really if you don't mind cheating (did I mention that is cheating? ;)), and you don't care to really know the information then a dump is 'ok'. I have know MCSEs that can't plug in a keyboard because all they used are dumps and never truly touched a computer outside of surfing the web. You don't want to fall into that.

Now what I would probably do is see if you can take some practice tests. They would at least give you an idea of where you stand in the real tests. God knows Microsoft doesn't write the normal type of tests.

The only reason I ever get certifications is when my job actually requires someone to get certified in order to do a task. For instance, I got SANS certified because they would not allow direct database access from the internet unless someone was certified in code security.

I'm not sure if that helps at all but that is sort of my feeling on dumps. If you truly know the information it isn't that bad.
