Hello all,
Today I got the Microsoft beta certification exam 71-448: TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance.

I can easily say that 71-448 is easier when I compare my situation against the 71-445 (or the released version 70-445 BI certification exam). I think this is because the 71-445 had a quite alot Data Mining questions in it. Perhaps 71-448 has not so much in number when compared with other topics in the Business Intelligence (BI) platform of Microsoft.

The exam has 70 question in total. The questions begin with the SSIS (SQL Server Integration Services) section. Then the SSAS (SQL Server Analysis Services) section and the questions followed the first SSIS section. The third section belongs to SSRS (SQL Server Reporting Services) section.

Of course the result will be informed to us after the evaluation of the beta test results. And this generally takes a two months time.

I wish good luck to who plans to take this exam.
