I couldn't see anything offensive or unethical in the query. Most people
prepare for tests. This is entirely normal and expected behaviour. We're taught
to prepare for tests from the first day of school.

And to prepare, you need to know something about the test. If he had asked for
the questions or answers it would be cheating, but he didn't. End of story.

If I was running the test, I'd give him a bonus point for doing his research.
