The admin side is pretty interesting though - there's an awful lot to it!


I must admit, since I started with SQL Server (back in Jan 2012) I've definitely found a soft spot for being a DBA but going down the developer route at some point may also be on the cards as my background is primarily web design. I think I'll see how things go for me in the DBA world though as I'm quite enjoying studying for these exams at the moment (masochist much???).

The main topics I keep getting low marks on the transcript are

Designing a SQL Server Instance and Database Solution
Designing a monitoring strategy

Then things on
High availability
Backups and Recovery

Would also be beneficial.

No worries, if you IM me with your email address I'll get some bits sent over to you. Hopefully they'll help.

Not to be a downer... but the material for those courses is copyrighted, just like training kit books and other publications.

I think I can get an understanding of the bits covered from the QA website

http://qa.com/training-courses/technical-it-training/microsoft/microsoft-sql-server/microsoft-sql-server-2008-and-r2/designing,-optimizing,-and-maintaining-a-database-administrative-solution-for-microsoft-sql-server-2008/

Couldn't find 50400 on the MS learning website any more, guess its due to the exams being retired soon so the course is obsolete.

Thanks for the advise Gail, duly noted. Guess I'll just have to stick with the paper copies of the training files rather than my scanned ones, shame really as it enabled me to refer to them and my training notes when I wasn't in the office but copyright is copyright I guess!! Do you know if MS do the course notes in electronic format at all?

Dunno about the law where you are, but there's often a difference between taking a copy for personal use (backup) and distributing copyright material to someone else. It was the second I was referring to (the 'I'll send you a copy')

I think I should err on the side of caution as reading the preface in the training material states (and I paraphrase): No part of the doc can be reproduced or stored in a retrieval system!! Oh well not to worry, sometimes copyright helps other times it hinders. Best get on with the rest of my studying for Fridays exam - onwards and upwards!!
