Exams 70-447, 70-536 Now Available

New exam provides MCDBAs with short path to MCITP; new developer exams for application developers now available

Microsoft has released two more exams in the last few weeks, one that can benefit those already at work on their MCDBA credential.

Exam 70-447, UPGRADE: MCDBA Skills to MCITP Database Administrator by Using SQL Server 2005, is aimed at MCDBAs who want to take the short path to achieving MCITP: Databased Administrator status. Candidates who have the MCDBA and pass it still need to get through Exam 70–431, TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance, to obtain full MCITP: Database Administrator status. Exam 70-447 has been available since the first week of March.

Microsoft offers several SQL Server 2005 e-learning courses for this and several of the MCTS exams, which are free until November 1, 2006. To find out more, go to https://www.microsoftelearning.com/sqlserver2005/.

Exam 70-536, TS: .NET Framework 2.0 - Application Development Foundation, is aimed at programmers and developers. It's one of two exams that are required for the three MCTS: .NET Framework titles. The exam can also be used to satisfy all the second-tier Microsoft Certified Professional Developer titles. That exam went live last week.

I took exam 70-447 on 17 June and found it very hard. It is four hours and contains 66 questions of which half are within 6 case studies.

To become a MCITP, you must have the MCTS certification (requiered exam 70-431), Then your upgrade exam for your MCDBA status 70-447 as well, thus 2 exams. Else it is three exams.

MCTS: SQL Server 2005 certification as a prerequisite even if you take the upgrade test
