Hi Guys,

I am planing to do MCSA – SQL server 2012 certification, which has the following exams.

a. Exam 70-461:
Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
b. Exam 70-462:
Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases
c. Exam 70-463:
Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

1. I don't see the MS Press books available. If you are taking the exams, please let me know how are you studying for it?
I don't have any previous SQL server certifications.
2. Is there a copy of MS Sql server 2012 I can download to study? My work laptop has a SQL server 2008 which I cannot install. Is there a way to install SQL server 2012 in parrallel without effecting the SQL server 2008 instance?
3. Any other advice for a SQL server certification newbie to start?

Thanks for your time..

RM

Does anyone know how long it will take for a 3 years experience SQL IT person to pass the three exams?

thanks

Will good to split them.

I think the 461 looks a simple one, what about the rest

It is my first time to try a MS exam

thanks

I passed the 461 and am working on preparing for the 462. I guess it depends on what you have done for the past three years. I studied for a weekend for the 461. My method is study, practice, training kit exams, and then take the tests when I feel ready. Also, get the second shot coupons.

Also, you might want to start a new thread next time.
