Q: What exactly are VCE files?
A: VCE (Virtual CertExam) is a file format that realistically simulates IT exam environment, allowing for the most convenient exam preparation you can get - in the convenience of your own home or on the go. If you have ever seen IT exam simulations, chances are, they were in the VCE format. For details on how to create, use and convert VCE files, please refer to the separate section below.
Q: Who can upload the files?
A: All files are uploaded by Examcollection community members. We encourage everyone who has recently taken an exam and/or has come across some braindumps that have turned out to be true to share this information with the community by creating and uploading VCE files.
Q: Who can download the files?
A: The files may be downloaded by individuals for their personal use – your exam preparation. This means that downloading files for commercial use/reselling is not permitted. Examcollection reserves the right to block users suspected of reselling the files at our sole discretion.
Q: How many files can I upload/download per day?
A: You can upload an unlimited number of VCE files. Downloading is restricted to maximum 15 files per day. The limit was imposed with the goal to prevent commercial use of VCE files created by our members.

As PassGuide makes their files available for a small fee, they make a great source of reliable information.
Of course we're not saying that the free VCEs uploaded by our members aren't reliable (experience shows that they are). Yet, with everyone being able to create and upload the file, you should use your critical thinking as to what you download and memorize… you know what we're saying.
