Quote Your Sources   

When asking any question, please quote your sources. Quoting your sources means that you mention where you got the question from: for example the title and authors of a book, the name of a mock exam, address of a website where you got the question from etc.

This is especially important in the certification forum, for the posting of mock questions. This is needed for several reasons:

  • It is polite and professional to do so. Giving attribution is an important habit, and the author of the source would appreciate it.

  • For mocks, it will help people find the mock exam. For other cases, it will provide people with a source of information. In either case, it will help put your question in context.

  • It helps you if other people can check that you have interpreted the question (or the information) in the same way as the author intended.

Note: Do not post questions that you got on the actual exam. Those questions are copyrighted and you are not allowed to republish them. See: Position on Real Questions
