Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Database Developer DBA Certification Track

Updated on June 6, 2010

How To Get Your Resume Seen

Have you been trying to get a job in the exciting field of Databases, either programming or administration, and can't seem to get your resume seen or read by the decision makers? You need to add certifications to your experience and education to prove that you can at least take a test and pass it based on the subject material.

There are instructor led classes you can take to help you learn the material. Study both the Sybex and Microsoft press books designed for the exams you want to take, and after doing the practice examples in the books, and the books' practice exams, spend some money to take the simulation exams (and flash cards) on Transcender or SelfTestSoftware. These two sites will ensure that you know the material enough to pass an exam.

SQL Server 2008 Developer Track

Currently, the exams you need to take to earn your MCITP: SQL Server 2008 Developer are the 70-433 and the 70-451. If you've developed queries and T-SQL in any version of SQL Server, this is probably the track for you.

SQL Server 2008 Database Administrator

The exams you need to take to earn your MCITP: SQL Server 2008 Database Administrator are the 70-432 and 70-450. If you've spent a lot of time tuning databases, including their file storage, creating indexes, creating partitions, using various built-in tools for diagnosing and monitoring database performance, you should study for these exams.


If you live in the Tampa Bay area, including Tampa, Town 'n' Country, Westchase, Tampa Palms, New Tampa, Thonotosassa, Temple Terrace, and surrounding areas, I can come to your home and tutor you in person in the evenings or weekends.
