  • Note that the upgrade exams 70-453, 454 and 455 that are mentioned on those links are NOT available at Prometric (I just checked). In fact, if you follow the last link provided by the previous poster (towards exam 454), you will find that it displays the following: "This exam is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2012". This was last July, so the exam has already been retired, as I mentioned in my first post.

  • I'm afraid that the upgrade exams from version 2005 have already been retired. At least, they are not showing up in the ms learning website. This means that you will need to start from scratch on version 2008, and then upgrade to 2012, if you want both certifications. Or just do the 2012 exams if you only want the latest.

    You can find all the exams and upgrade paths by following the links on this page:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/sql-certification.aspx

    Just clik on the "MCSA" or "MCSE" squares and see the list of required exams. At the botton there is a link labelled "Upgrade Paths" that lists the upgrade exams from 2008 to 2012.
