Hi All,

I`m gearing up to study for my first cert and i`m looking at the 70-432 exam. I want to make this as easy on me as possible cause i`m a lazy bugger (I work full time, and after iv done dinner, and sat down i`m knackered, well that's my excuse anyway)

I'v made a learning plan on microsoft so I can track my progress which, I think is important for me. The transact part of my learning I thought of using my android phone (you can get SQL editors now) so I can practice when I get a spare 5 minutes. I want to do perhaps an hour a night then maybe an all dayer here and there.

I also want to actually book the exam to give me a time frame to work (If I don't book it I think i`ll end up giving up studying) so How long realistically should I give myself? I know everyone is different and we all learn at different rates, but what is a good ball park length of time?

It's good that you have made your learning plan. Look at the skills measured in the exam and do a checklist so you can tick off items when you are comfortable with each measured skill. You're ready when you have ticked each item about 3 times. this took me less than a month because I spent a large chunk of my time on it couple of years ago, plus I was already comfortable with the product. On the other hand, my colleague spent about 5 months preparing because he didn't care about timing, he booked exam in advance as motivation but he forgot until a day or so to d day. Go figure.
