Wrote all 5 (for the MCSE), studied from Books Online as I wrote them well before any books were out.

You did the whole SSIS, MDS, DQS thing from MSDN? Painful.

Yes, at a fairly high level though, no idea how I passed that exam. Though, if we're being honest that was the only one of the 5 I bothered studying for at all. (wrote the five 2012 exams the same week I wrote my knowledge exam, so studying was directed towards the higher priority)
