MSSQL_NOOB (12/13/2012)
I mean, if it's MSSQL2012 certification, then yes, I agree, a candidate needs to be recertify. But if it's the same MSSQL2008 - 70-432 exam (for example), why the requirement and as a candidate, why waste the money?

It's not. What they're doing is removing the version specificity from the cert, so you will have the MSCE (Data Platform) cert, no mention of 2012. The release cycle for new versions is 3 years, so if you have to recertify every 3 years, you'll be writing exams for the latest available version each time, not the same exam again.

Hi Guys
I am starting to study for MCTS and MCITP (70-432, 70-450). Anyone have an idea of the length of study it takes to pass the exam? Just looking for round about.

JD, It really depends on your experience level with SQL 2008.

This link contains a list of topics covered by 70-432.

If you know these topics like the back of your hand, go ahead and take the test. If not, this is your study guide. You can get practice exams from Measure-UP or Transcender, and see how you do, but avoid "dumps" or any service promising actual exam questions, as these violate the rules.
