    Hi there, I am new to this forum.

    I am thinking of doing 70-448, does anyone have any tips, good websites, books etc?

    Cheers, Roger

    70-448? That's.... SQL, right?

    *runs to the hills*

    Sorry mate, not my area of expertise.

    Welcome to the forums! :)

    Yep I am working on SQL at the mo, mainly writing stored procedures and using SSRS to build reports. I also get involved with SSIS, so this looks like the right exam for me?

    I haven't taken any SQL exams yet, also I am working with 2005 so should I do those, and would you recommend doing 70-431 first?

    Its entirely down to you whether you do the 2005 or 2008 track, since you haven't started yet I'd take 70-432 as the first exam. 70-431 was the 2005 equivalent.

    I honestly do not see how they expect anyone to keep up with their rapid track changes but, hey hoe.

    MS SQL 2010 (Kilimanjaro) will probably be out before many people legitamately complete a 2008 track and you'll have to start all over again...

    You ever feel like a hamster on a wheel being milked by cert companies ?

    Yeah I know what you mean, although it's been a couple of years since I've doing any exams in anger. I passed my msce on windows 2000 in 2003, can i still call myself an mcse?

    See http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/requirements.mspx

    More specifically - The credential will not expire.

    Simply list the qualification as MCSE: 2000 as opposed to the generic MCSE so it won't be confused with MCSE: 2003.
