I am still working on getting my SQL Server 2005 MCITP. I am on to the second exam, 70-443, and I thought I would blog about it as I study and go through the book. All of the entries related to this will have the tag of 443 if you would like to refer back to them and read the series. I am using the books that were supplied in the MCITP Self-Paced Training Kit (Exams 70-431, 70-443, 70-444): Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Database Administrator Core Requirements: Microsoft(r) SQL Server … Core Requirements (Pro Certification)
and I really did like the first book. I think that it did a good job of helping me prepare for the first exam. I hope to get the second exam done soon and move on to the third. I really think that posting about it here as I go will be a good way to better retain what I am reading. I am downloading SQL Server 2005 Enterprise right now fom my Technet account so that I will be able to go through all the examples and practices. On the first exam I learned that you must know the theory but you must also know how to apply your theory to real problems. Following along in a SQL Server and doing all the practices will really help me get this down. Well I hope that this helps me learn more and pass the exam and also hope that you will follow me and learn something as well. After I get the 2005 cert I will be moving forward and attempting to get my 2008 MCITP as well.
