As the author of the IBM developerWorks tutorials for LPIC-1 
(http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/lpi/101.html), I can state 
categorically that the only LPIC questions I have ever seen were on the 
two exams I took to pass LPIC-1. I am a member of the LPI Advisory 
Council, and have no access to questions through that either. Nor do I 
have any privileged access because of my employer being a platinum sponsor 
of LPI.

LPI is attempting to increase the size of the question pool in order to 
diminish the value of brain dumps as an inappropriate means of 
demonstrating the skills required for LPIC certification. I use the 
detailed objectives as a guide to the material I cover in the tutorials. 
If you understand the material described in the objectives you should be 
able to pass the exams. The testimonials I receive suggest that my 
tutorials serve their purpose well.
