It is always a good question when I have to do a little reading to get the answer. Thanks.

Well, thanks for the clarification. I was studying for the MCTS exam using 'The Real MCTS SQL Server 2008 Exam 70-432 Prep Kit: Database Implementation and Maintenance' by Mark Horninger (2009) which stated it clear as mud:
The Bulk-Logged recovery model is similar to Full recovery model, except that nonlogged operations are performed as nonlogged. This provides a performance advantage for Bulk-Logged operations. However, if a Bulk-Logged operation has occurred since the last full backup, you will not be able to recover any changes made since the last full backup. The Bulk-Logged recovery model does not support point-in-time recovery.

Was really the question framed correctly?

Thanks.

Wow - that's wrong on two counts. First is that even if bulk-logged operations have occurred since the full backup, you can still recover to the end of a log backup, and second is the bit you highlighted.

Although I haven't done that exam myself as I upgraded directly from 2005 to 2008 MCITP, most of the Admin exams I've done have contained a fair amount of backup and recovery questions, so it does pay to know your stuff.

Yes, it's very frustrating trying to study for the exams when the study guides are wrought with errors and contradictions. I wish those things were peer reviewed. However, these SSC QOTD, along with the peer discussions, keeps me on my toes :-)

I must warn you though - it can become addictive. I've been slowly working my way through all the previous questions from the beginning. I've only got a few hundred more to go...

True Story: The exam questions are filled with contradictions and odd errors also. They are peer reviewed (no really) a lot like these questions are. We would sometimes agree to leave in a "bad" question. One or two individuals would bother or Flame the rest of the panel until frustration, instead of logic, made the decision. That is why I have always recomended the use of "study guides" to anyone taking the certification tests.
