    Yeah! Passed with 793!
    Crikey that was difficult.
    Got 100% in two sections (Developing a Logical Data Model & Implementing the Physical Database), but weirdly did badly in Security Plan, which I though I was pretty good at. :blink
    Indexes definitely came up a lot.
    Glad that's over.:D

    Onto 70-228!

    w00t!

    Fantastic news - looks like you passed it like me (skin of your teeth!)

    It is a b1tch of an exam isn't it? I remember sitting there at one point trying to work out the answer to a question on full-outer joins for about 20 minutes... before realising I had about 45 minutes left to answer 20-odd questions :ohmy

    interesting how now they give you a detailed score report providing areas where you're weak - when i took it all I got was a pass or fail together with my score. Thank God I passed, otherwise I'd have ended up not knowing which areas I was weak on (although, to be honest, it was probably all of them :biggrin )

    Congratulations!

    Thanks all. Feeling immensely relieved at the moment! 8)
    Got my MCP ID and stuff last night so I'm all signed up for that.
    4-6 weeks for my welcome pack though!

    Boycey - I used the Sybex book, good as my main learning guide.

    I bought the Exam Cram 2 book after going through the Sybex book, this is an excellent book & I highly recommend it. (As long as you already covered something like Sybex/MS Press books etc, it can't be used a main reference). It's very easy to read and explains things well.

    Books Online was heavily used, of course.

    I also had some Netg online stuff, but IMHO, wasn't worth the time I spent looking at it. Others have told me they found it very useful though, so I suppose it depends.

    Got the Transcender software a few weeks before the exam which was also pretty useful, but I probably did overuse it.


    Zeb - yeah, hope they get easier from here!
    By 100% I mean the score bar they give you was all the way across the page to 'Strong' for these sections - I took this to mean I got all the questions right but I may be mistaken.

    Well done on the pass Gaz

    I passed this exam about a month ago and found exactly the same thing as you in regard to the Security section - I don't recall any security questions that I struggled on yet only got 40-50% on that section!
    You should have no problems with 70-228 now as you've done the most difficult of the two SQL exams
