  • I haven't seen any books published yet that are specific to SQL 2016 MCSA. The exams just came out of beta this month, I believe.

    For now, you will probably need to rely on SQL 2012/2014 published material and watch for any new releases in the coming weeks/months.

    Keep you eye on this site:

    MCSA SQL Server 2016

  • Hi,

    Have the same question. It seems that although the beta period was opened about three months ago (as this post was written), any study materials still no exist. I'm planning to take 70-764 exam on January 31 (because the beta period was extended and I have the promo code) and I'll use a combination of a 762 exam guide (SQL 2012) and a new book, "Introducing MS SQL Server 2016", which covers new features of SQL 2016. Also I have a 20762 MS course record (it was about SQL 2014). I think this is not enough. If you've already found any incredible wonderful  SQL 2016 book or any other fine prep material - please, let me know.

    Thanks
