    Mobbia - if you're wondering why you had to type out the name of that site spaced out the way you did, it's because it's a brain **** (actual test questions, i.e. cheating) and gets autoblocked from the forums...so um, yes, you are wasting your time with that site's materials...it could cost you your certs if you're caught. Run away, run away!!
