Has anyone taken an SQL server entrance exam for Scott Trade?
I'm not sure what to study or how to prepare. I
Did all the testing I can at SQL-ServerHelper testing. If anybody has
any insight or ideas I would be eternally grateful. It would be a
great opportunity to move on from my current position
and get into a more mainstream language

It sounds like a custom job application technical test, are you able to post the job description for the role you're applying for please? That may shed some light on the skills required (and we can all weigh in with book suggestions and URLs)...

Note to developers:
CAST(SUBSTRING(CAST(FLOOR(NULLIF(ISNULL(COALESCE(1,NULL),NULL),NULL)) AS CHAR(1)),1,1) AS INT) == 1
So why complicate your code AND MAKE MY JOB HARDER??!

I was contacted by a recruiter about the position
I have a little experience with SQL server
since working with it as a backed to our Visual Foxpro application
I know SQL mostly from
VFP, but picked up on SQL server pretty easily
This is who the email is from as I just got the
link this morning.

Your test session for SBS Creatix, LLC
It's at www.select2Perform

I was told this is an entry
to middle level position.Unfortunately that is all I have.
By studying and taking some online tests.
I see there is much I didn't know
