Hi guys and girls. I passed the 70-433 exam yesterday on the second attempt. I missed out by 2 questions first time round which was disappointing but got 870 this time.

Now I'm debating whether to go for the 70-451 which seems to have no official microsoft books, or go for the short track to MCSA in SQL 2012. Ive never used 2012 and dont know how different it is or if there's much study material about. Im completely self taught via online resource and books and would rather continue to study in the same way, rather than official classroom courses.

What do you guys think, and can anyone suggest reading material for both 70-451 (MCITP 2008) and 70-457 (Part one of the short track to MCSA 2012) if there are any?

I thought it was ok. As long as you have fully read and revised the official 433 microsoft book. I also had to personally do extra revision on XML, CLR, and performance related questions (as I didn't have much professional experience on these). I would also recommend doing lots of practice exams from the CD with that book. You get used to the wording of the questions and the potential slip ups.

Are you referring to this book?

http://www.amazon.com/MCTS-Self-Paced-Training-Exam-70-433/dp/0735626391/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345394494&sr=8-1&keywords=70-433

Some of the more negative reviews made me shy away from buying it. Normally I don't mind typos in a book but IT books really should be as accurate as possible due to the numerous code included and I see many references to inaccurate code samples.

That's the one. I thought it was a good book. It has about 200 questions in the training kit exam software too. Not saying it covers everything 100%, as you have to brush up on a few of the details online.

Hi,

I want to take the 70-433 exam.
When enquired with prometric they replied saying this exam has been retired. But in the post saw many people took this exam.
Can someone please guide me on how to enroll or register for this exam?

Hi,

I have went through the site already and when i tried to register the prometric sent me mail saying the exam has been retired. So i have replied back to prometric saying the exam is valid till July 2013.
