Hi Phil

I hold my hands up to the error, and certainly don't think BOL is the "gold standard", though it is very good. I mention Vieira's book as I think it's useful to have a general reference book to hand, especially when studying - BOL tends to be a little dry at times.

There is a 2008 version of the book out now too, but I haven't read it so can't comment.

Unfortunately I cannot correct the article once published, I have no access to it. I'd dearly love to add in the missing links I posted up for the 70-451 section too.

Thanks for everybody's feedback, I'll do my best to ensure no errors are made in future articles.

Excellent article. One thing worth reemphasizing is practical experience, as mentioned in the article. You can learn a lot by setting yourself challenges and trying to solve them.

If you already had 2005 certification then most probably just write one paper 70-453 and you get MCIPT. In Database Administration though, which I cleared last year.

I am far away from programming.

453 UPGRADE: Transition your MCITP Database Administrator Skills to MCITP Database Administrator 2008


Hi Sanjay,

Apart from practical experience with SQL 2008, what preparation guide did you use for exam 453? Microsoft says there is still no preparation guide for this exam (at least from MS Press). I doubt if they will release one :-). Was it only BOL for SQL 2008 which you referred to?

Cheers

How valuable your employer will consider these certs are for their employees.

Does going for certs stand you apart from the crowd. Does it help in this economic climate?

Hi bhavster27,

I think having a certification helps you make it to the interview stage - it's seen as a "nice to have" on your CV.

Once you're at interview stage, it's all up to you...

bhavster27, I am going to echo Mike here.

I have never known a certification to get someone a job, but it can definitely help in getting the interview. I know this both as someone who has gotten interviews because of my own certifications and as someone who has consciously used them as one factor when screening stacks of resumes to decide who got interviews.
