Hey, I'm in the same boat, not used SSIS much, really want to though along with the rest of the BI toolset. I also have the Wrox book, but the 2008 version. I know that configuration files are a thing of the past and there is a different way of deploying packages. I wonder if the rest of the book will be useful.
Without giving anything away detail wise, did you get drag n drop Q's, or was it mainly the usual multiple choice?
I'm using the 70-463 book, along with transcenders for 463 and 461, and I have the Wrox pro admin book, also quite a weight.
I'll also do the Stairway Series as well, did the stairway series really help with the exam though?
PS: Tharg, thank you for the links, that was very thoughtful.
