This question already has an answer here:

What site in the Stack Exchange network (meta/SO/programmers) is the best for starting a topic about a Microsoft certification? I'm not after technical assistance - I would like opinions on being 'ready' for the exam etc.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Maybe on SO chat? – Manishearth Apr 2 '12 at 7:59
OH hey :P Look who it is ;) – Lix Apr 2 '12 at 7:59
We do not have Forums...and to say it from the beginning: I'm 99.99% sure that it is not Programmers. – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 2 '12 at 7:59
I don't think that a non programming question would be recieved positively on any of those sites... As you said - "I'm not after technical assistance" perhaps SOFU is not the right place... – Lix Apr 2 '12 at 8:00
Have you seen this? Let google do the work for you ;) – Lix Apr 2 '12 at 8:01
@Bobby - what are you being argumentative for? You know what I meant by forums. – SkonJeet Apr 2 '12 at 8:01
@Lix - thanks, but that link doesn't answer any of the questions I'd like from people who have actually done the exam. – SkonJeet Apr 2 '12 at 8:02
I revised the question so people won't frown over the wording. – Shadow Wizard Apr 2 '12 at 8:23
see… and… that may allready answer your question, however these days is a better place for this type of question then stackoverflow – Ian Ringrose Apr 2 '12 at 11:38

Looks like is the place, quick search gave two related examples:

Both not technical, both received upvotes and never got closed.

Things have changed in the years that passed. The other answer is correct, such question is off topic for Stack Exchange network these days.

You should know that past questions can be a bad guide to what's currently on topic on a site. These questions are very problematical as they are very localised and potentially highly subjective. – ChrisF Apr 2 '12 at 8:23
@ChrisF they're both less than year old - can't really call them old so I assume if they're off topic there they would have been closed by now.. no? – Shadow Wizard Apr 2 '12 at 8:25
@ShaDowWizArd: You're aware that Chris is Diamond at Programmers? – Time Traveling Bobby Apr 2 '12 at 8:26
Thanks a lot Sha Dow Wiz Ard. – SkonJeet Apr 2 '12 at 8:26
@SkonJeet - Please be very careful about how you word your question if you do post it on Programmers. – ChrisF Apr 2 '12 at 8:27
@Bobby nope.. but still - personally I believe that if such questions exist, have upvotes and not older than a year it means that's the most proper place in the network. whether the specific question Mr. Jeet is going to ask will be proper or not I can't predict. – Shadow Wizard Apr 2 '12 at 8:31
"Both...never got closed." Challenge accepted. ;-) – Cody Gray Apr 2 '12 at 8:33
@TheEstablishment omg.. please please don't tell them I sent the army! :D – Shadow Wizard Apr 2 '12 at 8:34
The first one is now closed... Certification questions are borderline, they have to be very good to survive on Programmers /cc @SkonJeet – Yannis Apr 2 '12 at 19:30
@rene true, done that. – Shadow Wizard Mar 24 '15 at 22:15

You are asking for "opinions".

This makes the question Not Constructive on any site in the Stack Exchange network. These sentences are in all FAQs:

Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.

If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about ______”, then you should not be asking here. However, if your motivation is “I would like others to explain ______ to me”, then you are probably OK. (Discussions are of course welcome in our real time web chat.)
