    Passed the above ....it was fairly tough and was mostly scenario-based with about 7 scenarios and 6 or 7 questions on each one, plus a few non scenario questions.

    As usual heavily about new features. Quite a few questions on performance tuning queries, but these were easy.
    Made the mistake of buying and working through the Microsoft book, which really covers the bare minimum and has far too much stuff about .NET development for a database exam. I then realised I wasn't ready so went through much of the Sybex book as well, which was much more thorough, contained more practical exercises and more practice questions. Avoid the Microsoft book and go for Sybex.
    I think the only advantage of the Microsoft book is the discount on the exam, but if you don't pass first time or have to buy another book because the Microsoft one sucks, then that advantage goes away.

    I am having a break from these things for a while. Maybe I'll do some .NET development exams next, but as we are still on VB6 at work and arguments for upgrade seem to fall on deaf ears, maybe not.

    Hello zardoz,
    Congradulations.
    I have been studying for 70-442 for a while. I'd like to share your success, I hope I can pass the exam like you :)

    Is there a link for the Sybex book you mentioned about?

    Thanks, a lot
