It's not a bad social network in all fairness, just be carefull with recruitment agencies. When I got made redundant last year I ended up with around 100 recruitment people on my profile which is good when your looking for work, but once you have found a job, remove them all as you just get battered with job posts and messages which distracts you from the actual going on of your professional network.

Not signed into it in a while, so thought lets see what people are up to and noticed a Andy H has viewed your profile and I thought the same, thats not Mr Hyslop is it, took a look and it was.

Any how, I purchased the MOAC book for 70-450 the other day, which goes over the topics to add on to the Tom Carpenter book I got, so will let you know how that one is once I have read through it a couple of times.

Thats the situation I'm in now, its not certain but things are not looking good, hence the profile.

Thanks, that sounds like good advice!

thats not Mr Hyslop


Yep thats me

Yes please, I'd be interested in your opinion

Reading through the MOAC book, its very limited in what it details in the actual couseware, I would say if you have a very basic knowledge of SQL and you want to go for the cert then yeah it would probably be a good read, but I have found myself skimming over big chunks of the book as its to basic.

Still to go through the lab execrises book yet, that might be a different story as its more hands on than theory.

Hi Anthony

Been away for a while!

Thanks for the rundown on the book, is sounds like it may be a little too basic so I'll probably be giving that one a miss!

Yeah very basic, can buy my copy off me for £60 if you want? Wasn't worth it though, will be putting that back up on Amazon when I get a spare 10 minutes.

Hows things? All good I hope?

Congrats - somewhere good and with good prospects I hope.

Just been given the go ahead to rebook 70-450 for Thursday, think I will book an earlier one around 8 or 8:30 this time, just going through the Transcenders again and totally forgot half of the questions.

Good luck Anthony, it will all come back to you, what sections did you score less on last time out?

624 is not a million miles away brushing up on 1-2 area would get you to 700 IMO

The main two I didnt do to good on where designing a server & db solution and designing a monitoring strategy. Both bars the same on that one.

Then High Availability and Backup & Recovery where the next two lowest. The other three I got full marks on.

The good thing is that I know the area's which are lacking and can concentrate more on them areas in the books I have. Also printed off a bit on NUMA as I slipped up on that as well but unsure on that as BOL says one thing and Connect issues say another so unsure which way to go in the exam BOL or Connect (I went Connect then changed to BOL in the review time so might have changed 2 questions the right or wrong way around).

Hopefully! will be working on SQL server & Oracle on the server side and BI tools will be Cognos & Business Objects both of which I've never worked with as I have been exclusively SSRS so will be up-skilling in that respect..

Good look with the exam! Let us know how it goes
