70-448 Prerequisites? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I've been looking into getting this certification and I'm still fuzzy as to what HAS to be done.

    Obviously there is a test that needs to be passed.
    I understand that it's not easy and depending on one's background, a varying amount of preparation is required.

    I need to do this as cheap as possible.
    I work with SQL server every day and I get a lot of help/advice/instruction from our DWH team.

    I notice that Microsoft has 3 separate courses, a couple of books, and some articles and videos that are all part of their "Learning Track".

    My question is, without undertaking the debate of how prepared one can be without them, are any of these necessary/prerequisites to taking the 70-448 exam?

    If I watch some of the videos and read some of the books that cover the topics I don't feel I'm strong in, can I take the exam? More importantly, if I pass will I be considered certified or are the classes part of the certification?

    Thank you!
