SQL Server 2008 Database Developer Cert? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have let my SQL skills get rusty; some parts are very good, some are very weak. I need to get strong in all of the areas again, and need help collecting info on training (online instructor, virtual lab, self-paced of any kind, etc) for MSSQL 2008. It seems like things are not yet ready, and if I take the 2005 track I am afraid they will be retired soon.

    I would like to pass the 70-433 and 70-451 exams, but I cannot seem to find a solid set of resources to do this. Can anyone recommend stuff?

    Thanks.

  • There is a PDF roadmap document at

        http://download.microsoft.com/download/6/3/7/6370c653-e270-4e23-9685-15043f63dcce/SQLServer2008_CertPath_Complete.pdf

    and it lists this as a resource :

        Collection 6370: SQL Server 2008 Database Development (20 hours)

    But searching all over the Microsoft sites, I cannot find an actual reference to the content. Where is this stuff?

    Thanks.

  • You can consider Collection 2778: Querying and Modifying Data in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 with Transact-SQL to prepare SQL Server 2008 Database Development exam.

    You can also refer the learning plans for SQL Server 2008 Database Development:

  • Hi SCEF,

    In order to pass 70-433 and 70-451, the following is our recommended reading list:

    • Programming Microsoft SQL Server 2008 ISBN: 9780735625990
    • MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-433): Microsoft SQL Server 2008 - Database Development Book/DVD Package
      ISBN: 9780735626393

    We also have a classroom based MCITP Database Developer 2008 course which will help you pass the exams.

    Good luck.

  • It is interesting how no one answered the original question:

     

    Collection 6370: SQL Server 2008 Database Development (20 hours)

    Where is it?

    I'd also be very interested to know where the collection 6370 is.  It's mentioned on the SQL Server 2008 certification roadmap but cannot seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks
