Hi,
Ive just ordered the book: Querying SQL Server 2012 Training Kit. I am planning to take the exam 70-461 within 3 months. My question is: Will this book be sufficient enough to study to pass the exam. Are there any other resources anyone can recommend to make sure I have a good chance of passing.

Thanks

I'd say it would depend on your experience. I've been using T-SQL for over 10 years and passed the exam in January using mainly that book. I used it to top up knowledge of elements of T-SQL that I was a bit rusty with, and to learn the new features of SQL Server 2012. If you're inexperienced with T-SQL, then you might struggle just using this resource. Books Online is your friend! Use the book to get an overview, then dig in deeper with other resources.

Microsoft exams typically include questions that require knowledge not specifically spelled out in the official exam prep books. This is because they want you to have real world work experience too.

If you currently have a job where you work with SQL Server 2012, my suggestion would be to apply what is in the books to actual work tasks as much as possible. If not, do your experiments on your training system, particulary with features that are new in SQL 2012.
