No experience is required to take the exam, but it is required to pass the exam. It is very unlikely that you will pass the exam without at least having a test server to practice on.

Congrats, on passing.

Just curious on the mix of questions. Did integration services feature heavily, or was it pretty evenly matched across all the technologies.

My integration services isnt one of my strongest points, so I just wondering how indepth your knowledge of SSIS would need to be, to cover the questions that you had to answer. so many people consider themselves as "expert" in SSIS, and I find that doubtful to be honest, as SSIS is such a big product.

You definitely need to know the SSIS Transformations (Merge Join, Union All, etc.) and Tasks (Data Profiler, Execute Package, etc.) which you could learn from studying a book. You also need to know the SSIS structure of Control Flow versus Data Flow and which parts of the package are placed in each flow. In short, you should be able to design a moderately complex job from scratch before taking the test including the restartability and error handling features. Book learning will not be enough to answer all the SSIS questions correctly, but the test is evenly divided between SSIS, SSAS and SSRS so I assume it's only 33% of the score for the exam.

Do you know the CheckpointUsage options and what the colors red, green and blue indicate for precedence constraints? If you know these without research, then you have the depth of knowledge required for the exam.

I can't say much more than that without violating the NDA, but practice exams like those from Transcender will test you on the key SSIS topics. Good luck!

I have an accounting background and have been contemplating jumping into the BI realm. Is this self-study kit a plausible approach for someone who has only looked after the back end of enterprise software (mapping, configuration etc for specific reporting outcomes) and has a strong understanding of both accounting functions and how the process works within a database senario?

Any comments would be appreciated. While I live in a very large urban centre, courses in SQL 2008 are extremely limited at the moment.

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing the information which is very much helpful. :-):-)

Do you think it's necessary to pass 70-452 as a BI Developer? Are you full time prepared the exam for 5 weeks? I am trying to figure it out how long it will take me for preparation.

Have you ever evaluated the Microsoft 70-448 Exam http://www.testking.com/70-448.htm What do you think?

Thank You!
