How do the test exam questions from the 'Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server' training kit compare to the actual real 70-463 exam? is it worth purchasing?

I don't know for the 463 as I haven't taken it yet but I did for the 461. They are ok, I don't think they are necessary with Bol and experience.

Thanks, I also tried the training kit questions for 70-461 and found them to be excessively easy when compared with what was asked in the actual 70-461 exam. Just wondering now how the official 70-463 training kit questions pair up to the exam.

Congratulations!

Hey, I'm starting this soon, would that be the Knights 24 Hour BI trainer, or the SSIS 24 Hour trainer?

Cheers,
Paul.

Knight's 24 hour SSIS:

Basically this book and the training kit greatly helped me. It was an interesting exam for me.

Best of luck.

Once you've done a few training kits and actual exams, it is apparent that the people who write the training kits don't talk to the people who write the exam questions, and may not have taken the exam themsleves. Instead, Microsoft publishes a list of topics that will be convered on an exam, and Training Kit creators create training materials than cover these topics. This is because Microsoft wants people who actually have experience with the product rather than just crammed for the test. There is no promise or guarentee that a training kit will contain the answer for every question on the exam. If you're very experienced in all topics that are on the exam objective list, you probably don't need a training kit.

That said, I've just ordered the 70-463 book myself, because that will be my next exam and I've at little exposure to data warehousing in my career. Hopefully, setting it up at home and trying out the scenarios in the book will help me get familiar enough with it to pass the exam.

Yes, the book is worth purchasing, but you can also refer to the MSDN BoL. Check here you will get the links to the required study material to go thru.

It was nice the first 20 times you posted this. Now it's more like spam. Give it a break, please.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

My apologizes @Jeff and other users.
I thought to reply on some related threads, but didn't realized that I was doing this too much.
Sorry for spamming.
