MSFT Exam 70-455

This morning I passed my next exam, 70-455. This exam is the upgrade to SQL Server 2008 for existing MCITP BI professionals on SQL Server 2005. The exam's corresponding study guide can be found here:

http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exams/70-455.aspx

The exam provides 'scaled-down' versions of both the SQL Server 2008 TS/TP exams.

Hi and congratulations :)

I just passed the 70-446 certification and am now in a phase where I wonder about passing the 70-455.

Derek, may you please tell me more about the content of this exam? Is it really like the TP of 2008 (and then I'll train like I'm passing this one) or more focused on the differences between 2005 and 2008 (and then I'll train on theses subjects)?

And on the form, is it more like the TS (2h, 40 questions purely technical) or more like the TP (4h, 10 case studies)?

Thx for your feedback :)

Hi Andre!

70-445 is the the technology-centric exam of the 2 exams required for the MCITP in BI certification. Essentially, 70-445 is the exam that asks you which button to push, basically this is a very detailed exam as opposed to 70-446 which is a bit more higher level and more around design with the SQL Server BI Stack.

Nice to Meet You!

Derek

Hi again,

Actually, I forgot to ask U, Are the questions going to be based on both 2005 and 2008 like "What it was in 2005 and what it is now in 2008'? what percent of the questions are based on 2005 and 2008? Can you please help!

Regards,
Sandy!
