To be honest I dont think I'm ready for both, so today is going to be cram cram cram with Transcenders, re-reading the 70-432 book and also Tom Carpenters 70-432/70-450 book, then reading through Jason's (SQLRNNR) 70-450 Study Guide.


I recommend you don't. If you don't know it by now, an extra few hours won't help, but will make you go to the exam more stressed than you would have been otherwise. Take the evening at least off, relax, get some sleep, show up to the exam awake and as relaxed as possible.

Thanks for the advice Gail. I do plan that after 4pm today that I wont be looking at anything till after the exam tomorrow. I just wanted to run through the topics again at a high level just to make sure that I have the right joins in my brain between certain topics, especially around replication, also just running over my flash cards which I made notes on in relation to questions which I got wrong in the practise exams.

good luck Anthony, staying out of the books is top advice, I failed 70-432 by trying to cram everything into my head up until the guy at prometric ripped it out of my hands, for 70-450 I did the exact opisite, listened to some music, ate some banana etc. Enjoyed the morning so much that I re did 70-432 an hour or so later and passed that as well...

Thanks Mike, I was gutted but not gutted at the same time. Was hoping to pass, but then a fail just gives you that bit more motivation to do it right next time. Its exactly what happened with 70-432, failed that first time, brushed up on the topics which I didnt get a strong(ish) line on the transcript and passed it the second time, which is what I am hoping to do with 70-450.

Anyway on a totally different note, baby is all fine. Its a boy, we are both pleased, was to comfy in the other halfs tummy that it didnt want to move for the scan so couldnt get all the measurements the hospital needed so we need to go back in 3 weeks, but they said its healthy, 10 fingers, 10 toes, 2 arms, 2 legs, extactic, just roll on October now.

Sure you'll nail it next time Anthony..

On the up side at least you've had some good news to offset the exam news!

Thanks Andy.

Was searching the web for a few of the answers to which I had a sort of clue about but wanted to double check, and from reading BOL I chose the right answers, but then found connect articles which say the the info in BOL was wrong, so I should of stuck to my guns as I know the answers to two of the questions I changed because of information in BOL. As Mark Labbett of The Chase always says, stick to your gut and I should of done. But it was only two questions so wouldnt of made that much of a difference to the overall score.

I also see you managed to find my LinkedIn profile.

Yep

I was speaking with a colleague the other day and he suggested that it would be a good idea to join and create a profile so took the plunge and joined the brave new world

I saw an Anthony Green on one of the lists and thought no it can't be, looks like it was!

Also saw Koen on there we are part of the same Group http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=59185&trk=hb_side_g

Small world mate

As an aside I bought the MCTS 70-432 self study book and am going through it, I see what you mean it is good as a reference but does seem to need fleshing out a bit..
