Passing the 70-433 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone. I'll be taking the 70-433 this Saturday afternoon and I saw it requires a 700 passing score. I took the SQl server  exam  about 8 years  ago while  working for a  law  firm and I'm trying  to remember how many questions are  on the exam.  If  it's 55, do you need to answer 48 or more correctly? That's about 90%.

  • You cannot count the correct and incorrect questions, as they have different weight regarding the points you will get. There is an approx number of questions you will get .. lets say 40 to 60q, but different questions will get you different amount of points.

    Simply said, answer all of them correctly and you will be fine ..

  • THank you  ...I'm  using  MCTS  SQl Server  2008 , exam prep 70-433  and Kaplan's Self Test software for the  70-433.  Will that be enough? I had  an evaluation copy of SQl Server 2008 on my PC  but  it  expired.  IS  there  a way I can reinstall it?
