In my 15 years of taking various Microsoft certification tests, this test is the first that actually represents day to day work. I failed it. I'm too dependent on Books Online to get all the various syntax correct. And since training tools are not out until November and I didn't have time and money for a 5 day MOC class, I didn't have a good grasp of what to expect. (poor excuse, I know). Good thing I was able to get a free second shot.

My advice: Lots and lots of hands-on study of all of the topics in the Skills Measured that Microsoft posted.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll take it in two weeks, and too often I rely on BOL for syntax.
It will be my first MS cert.

@Gail, sorry for responding to a 3yr old thread, and also attempting to promoting my blog post.

But it's NOT a SPAM as still this exam 70-461 is latest and lot of people are perusing for it. So, just trying to help people and SQL community.

As I mentioned before, you're pushing people who actually need help down in the threads list. There are other channels to promote blog posts.
