Just barely failed the 70-450 test today.

Don't waste your money with the nuggets. They are ok but do not go into the detail you need to pass this test.

Those security questions are hard.


Sorry to hear that. There's a book on amazon by Tom Carpenter SQL Server 2008 Administration: Real-World Skills for MCITP Certification and Beyond (Exams 70-432 and 70-450) has anybody used it? There are no ratings for it on the UK or US sites.

There's also this -

70-443 and 70-450: Microsoft SQL Server Database Design and Optimization, Package

Thinking of giving it a go now I've got the 70-432 out of the way, looks like its the instructors resource but it's official MS (if that's a good thing!)

I have the book and it is pretty good read. I have not read it all the way through yet. I did not buy it was given to me at a PASS user group meeting. The good thing about is it is current, it was just written and published in 2010. It does have a test engine and flashcards (like all other Sybex books), with some video walkthroughs.

You might also go by the Skills Measured page and check Books Online for the information.

I have used MeasureUp.com that came with a few Exam Cram books I have. It is very good as practice. I think the 70-450 is about $80 for 30-day access. They have very good explanations in the answers, tell you why the wrong answer is wrong.

I might also suggest these 2 books:
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Internals (Pro - Developer) by Kalen Delaney, Paul S. Randal, Kimberly L. Tripp, and Conor Cunningham (Paperback - Mar 11, 2009)
Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting by Christian Bolton, Justin Langford, Brent Ozar, and James Rowland-Jones (Paperback - Jan 7, 2010)

If you can setup some virtual machines the lab manual would be a great thing to go through if you have not worked with SQL Server 2008 before.

I to am studying for the 70-450. Have test scheduled for 2/21. I have been using 70-432 materials plus the Administrators Pocket consultant. In addition I purchased a "Mega Guide" from PrepLogic for $1.00 (on sale) that is quite concise and good study material.

I have the book made by Tom Carpenter and have used it for passing 70-432. I had another book too and find that Tom Carpenters book goes a bit more into details with the stuff at least for 70-432 than the others I have seen.

I am going to start on 70-450 but from what I have found on the net, this book isn’t deep enough – you have to work with the program. But it seems that it the only book available so I will stick to it.

I used that book to study for the upgrade exam from 2005 to 2008. It didn't cover everything that was in the exam, but in other ways it was more useful than a traditional study guide as it had more "real world" examples and information.
