Definition - What does Brain Dump mean?

A brain dump is the act of capturing electronically or memorizing the questions and things in an IT certification examination and then recreating almost an exact replica of same, for illegal distribution.

A brain dump violates most of the non-disclosure agreements provided before an IT certification exam. It can result in loss or ban of any IT certifications as it is considered as an illicit tool designed to pass an exam.
