I Passed the SQL Server 2005 MCP 70-431: Implementation and Maintainance Exam

So as of today i'm a proud member of the MCP club :)

The exam wasn't that hard. I had 35 "Pick a correct answer" questions and 15 simulations.

The simulations threw me off a bit because i didn't expect them. 

So you have to be comfortable with T-SQL syntax and Management Studio alike.

Knowing what all of the little buttons and options do helps :)

 

The tools i used for learning are SQL Server Books Online and

EXAM CRAM: MCTS 70-431: Implementing and Maintaining Microsoft® SQL Server 2005

 

I've read some more books but they were really not needed to pass this exam.

I'll post my reviews of all the books in the following days.

what kind of guidance do you seek?
it's pretty simple:
read the book i read and try all of it by yourself to get a feel for it.
that's about it.

Is anyone interested in earning a few bucks to associate your SQL 70-431 certification with our company to enable us to achieve a particular Microsoft compentency requirement?

Please advise and thanks!
