  • For SQL 2012 BI you have the "MCSE:Business Intelligence Certification", which is attained by passig a total of 5 exams (see http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/mcse-sql-business-intelligence.aspx).

    Possibly the most significant one from your point of view is 70-463, "Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012," but also take a look at the other ones.

    If you follow the links to each exam on the previous page, you will find a section names "Prepartion Materials" which lists, among other things, the training kits under the "Books" subsection. For instance, the training kit for 70-463 was published in December 2012 (http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0790145345219.do).

  • 70-467 is the "design" exam. Typically, in all the "high-level" certifications from Microsoft, there are one or more exams that deal with "what" should be done (the design exams), instead of the "how" to do something (the technology exams). In the case of the MCSE:BI, it is 70-467 the one that deals with the decissions about how to design a BI-related system. To undertsand its objectives, it will help you to take a look at the "Skills Measured" section in the exam description page: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-70-467.aspx .
