I decided about a week ago to finish off my exams for the MCITP Database Administrator before Christmas (with only one exam, the 70-443 PRO: Designing a Database Server Infrastructure by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 to go), and today was the only day I could get. I spent about an hour having a quick review of partitions, mirroring and clustering, and took the exam. I passed, so I can now turn my attention to the Database Developer stream!
Congratulations. I am sure the exam was no pushover. And good luck on your database developer certification.
Oh, and just to introduce myself…I found my way here via a post of mine you replied to on MSDN forums. I’m a long-time VBA and Access Database developer who had suddenly decided to risk life, limb and remaining sanity to learn to develop .Net solutions. As such, I’m quite interested in SQL Server now. I do not wish, however, to go down your path and become a DBA. I wish to hire people like you when I make a million with my applications heh heh.
Take care, and thanks for your help in the forum. It is very much appreciated.
