Hi guys!

Currently Training Kit 70-461 is my daily companion. I have a question for all of you that already took Exam. As I dislike XML chapter most, I would like to know how "deep" are the questions regarding XML? Are there any XQUERY type of question or just SELECT .........FOR AUTO...... type of questions?
Is Training Kit enough for passing the exam?

Tnx

It's a violation of the NDA for anyone who has written the exam to discuss the contents or questions. As such, at best you'll get very vague answers. Also bear in mind that not everyone gets the same questions.

I'll just say that I can barely spell XML on a good day and leave it at that.

Yes, the training kit would be enough to pass the exam.

However, you will have to practice with SQL Queries a lot if you are new to TSQL.

Regarding XML, don't fear, after studying you will love to use XML with SQL. For XML prep you can refer to this MSDN article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-IN/library/ms190922.aspx

Its impossible to answer, not only for the reason Gail mentions, but also because the exam is different for everyone.

I will say I passed the 70-461 with room to spare and without any kind of significant prep or knowledge of using XML, however I may have been lucky in the pool of questions I got.
