  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am currently reading for 70-461 Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
    After I pass this exam what have I earned( I mean what can I write in my resume if I only finish this?)
    can i write MCSA in my resume If i only finish 70-461or ?!!

    when i visited the microsoft website they said in order to get MCSA in SQL SERVER you need to write three exams which are
    *) 70-461 Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012

    *)70-462 Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases

    *) 70-463 Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012.

    Can you guys explain?

  • Hi Dinesh,

    Passing the 70-461 exam will demonstrate to potential employers that you can write SQL queries to create database objects, work with data and optimize queries for SQL Server. Many of the skills you learn will also apply to other database platforms including Oracle and DB2.

    SQL skills do not directly apply to programming languages/platforms like C# and Java but both of these languages can use SQL to interact with data in databases.

    Good luck!

  • Hi,

    Once you pass 461, you can say that you are working towards the MCSA certification and have successfully passed the Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 exam.
