Comments posted to this topic are about the item SQL 2012 BOL

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Nice one, thanks.
Easy to answer actually, as the first answer never could be the correct one (2 and 3 contradict each other), so you only had to figure out which one was false.

Nice one!!! I guessed the answer with option 3 should be false.

I know it is early here on the East coast U.S.A. but I am surprised at the high percentage of those who did not know, what I considered to be an easy question. My purpose for suggesting this QOD was to teach, in all the discussions of the fantastic new features of 2012 I had never seen the changes in BOL mentioned in any detail and so I thought it worth the effort to give it some publicity.

Correct answers: 53% (77)
Incorrect answers: 47% (69)
Total attempts: 146



And with this note I am now off for a weeks vacation, visiting with my Great Grandchildren (a gal 2 and her brother a few months old).

The answer is pretty easy to find, so I think most people just guessed (wrong).

The answer is pretty easy to find, so I think most people just guessed (wrong).

Maybe some of them just can't do logic, because an awful lot of people must have been guessing from the whole set of six answers, not just from the logically possible two.

To date 39% have picked answers that have both 2 and 3 true, answers that should be eliminated by pure logic requiring no knowledge at all about 2012 BoL, no finding to do. In effect, I'm forced to believe that about 58% replied with random guess answers (if 39% of people hit the logically impossible answers by random guess we should expect that about 19% or 20% hit the two logically possible answers that way), presumably because they were unable to handle the elementary logic required to bring the number of options down to two. In other words because they were unable to do elementary logic of a kind which is absolutely required to achieve any degree of competence in any sort of database work (other than data entry with no discretion). A 6th of those 58% picked the one right answer out of the 6 options, leaving us with 48% wrong answers and 52% right (things have deteriorated slighly since Ron's comment, when only 47% had it wrong).
Like Ron, I'm surprised. I'm also appalled - don't database people think logically any more?

I was a bit concerned they were going to make it available on-line only.
Glad to hear that's not the case.
