I'm working towards achieving my MCSA in SQL 2012 this year.

Last fall I attended MS classroom training 10775 (training for 70-462) but have not yet taken the exam, and just last week I finally got around to passing 70-461.

I'm in the process of studying the self-training kit for 70-462 and plan to take that exam within the next month.

I recently saw an ad for these "training bootcamps" where you head off for 9 days or so and bang out your entire MCSA certification classroom & exams in one shot and thought that seems like a swell idea. However since I've already passed the first exam and attended the training for the 2nd, it clearly wouldn't be worth the cost/time to attend something like that just for the 3rd exam. Does anyone know of any training outfits that run a similar program but for each of the exams individually? Specifically 70-463 in my case.

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't go to a boot camp. Their only goal is to get you to pass the tests. They aren't interested in you actually learning anything that you may be able use immediately (or near term) upon returning to work. Work thorough things slowly with the idea to retain the information beyond just the tests. That will benefit you more than the certifications in the long run.

Replying on a very old thread, and you might have taken and passed this exam.

But for newbies, yes there is no need to go to any bootcamps when you can prepare yourself.
