Microsoft and Prometric are currently offering a "Second Shot" promotion. If you feel confident on the subject matter you can take the exam, and if you don't pass, you'll have a better idea of the level of knowledge required for you second free attempt.

The exam itself doesn't give a certification though, you also need 70-462 and 70-463 to get the MCSA certificate.


Well, if it's your first one you DO become a MCPS and can print off the appropriate certificate for that. It's not a "proper" certification as Koen says but it's better than nothing.

Passed mine last week - it was much harder than the practice tests you get with the book so don't rely too much on those.

Exactly right. Go to the Certification Site - build yourself a document with EACH item separated - look up examples and actually do them.

Repetition is where it's at - actually doing the work, not just reading about it.

cbtnuggets.com just has a video series out on 461 which could be a good starting point to get an overview. I am preparing for the exam myself and will sure have a look at these too.


Do you have T SQL code that is used in cbt nugget 70 461 series.

Hi

I hope you don't mind if I share slightly off the topic reply... I just wanted to let you know that we are organizing Christmas BI Competition and one of the categories will relate to Microsoft exams including 70-461.

To make it more interesting we have decided to provide Christmas Gift for the person who wins the competition and that is £100 (or $150).

For more information visit Christmas BI Competition.

p.s. After we had to take down 70-461 practice test (Microsoft T&Cs) we have decided to provide online classes and webinars for 70-461 that we hope to release in first part of 2014.

Take care
Katie & Emil

I recently passed Exam 70-461. I used the Exam Training Kit from Microsoft Press. I was able to order the book earlier this year... March or April time frame. It's by Itzik Ben-Gan, Dejan Sarka and Ron Talmage. I think it goes a fairly good job of covering the material on the exam. I also bought a developer edition of SQL Server, so I could install it at home and try out the new language features, etc.

For Microsoft certification exams in general, I tend to take the practice tests in certification mode to see if I'm ready. If I can get 100% on several practice exams in a row, then I feel I'm in good shape for the exam. That said... The exam questions are always more difficult, then the practice questions.


Thanks,
MKE Data Guy
