Hi,

I am planning to take Microsoft-BI certification in next month for SQL Server 2008.

For this I need to take two examps 70-448(MCTS) & 70-452 (MCITP) for BI Developer.

As exam 70-452 will expire in July 31, 2013, Is it worth to take up this exam. I don't want to take SQL Server 2012 exam so early because it's very new exam and very less material available for preparation.

Please Advice.



Thanks
Saurabh

The 2012 exam has been out for about a year now, it's hardly a very new exam.

Thanks for quick reply.

yes I agree with you.

Need your suggestion here.

Do I need take up 2008 or it better to go for 2012.

Also what is your thought on cercern I raised regarding 2008 exam in my first post.

Up to you. Do you see a value in having a SQL 2008 certification based on what work you do or what you see in the job market where you are? If so, then write the 2008 cert.
