Passed the 70-461 exam today, step one on my goal for the MCSE: Business Intelligence.  Man, that thing was way harder than the practice tests I took.  I purchased the book “Training Kit (Exam 70-461) Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012” to study for the exam, and it comes with a CD with practice exams by MeasureUp.  I had felt that the practice exams were a bit too easy to be really indicative of how the test should be, and I was correct in that belief.  The exam questions were more involved and the answers much pickier, so the actual test was a challenge.  I was quite glad to have passed it, I didn’t want to have to start over again. Lesson learned:  for the next test,  I will be studying a wide range of topics in great detail.

The book, by the way, is excellent.  Thoroughly enjoyed reading it — a sign I’m in the right field — and I’m sure I will continue to refer to it in my career.  Well done, gentlemen.

On to the 70-463!  (Saving the 70-462 for later, I am more of a developer and architect than a DBA).
