71-432 TS: MS SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance Certification Exam experience

Hello all SQL Server data professionals,

I finally take the beta exam 71-432 TS: MS SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance Certification Exam

The exam 71-432 is actually the beta of coming released version of Exam 70-432 TS: MS SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance Certification Exam.

My experience from Exam 70-432 was it was not an easy exam. But you can do alot if you are especially working as an SQL Server database administrator with MS SQL Server 2005 database servers.

You know mirroring was introduced with SQL2005 database servers, and MS SQL Server 2008 is a about to make the mirroring solution better. So there was a quite number of questions on high availability topics. Especially mirroring, fail over clustering, etc.

I know from MS SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database administration exams that backup, back-up types, restoring from different backup plans and recovery models have great importance in those exams. So nothing has changed for MS SQL Server 2008 70-432 certification exam. So be sure you know at your most on database backups and restoring from those backups according to your recovery plan.

You know partitioned tables are introduced first to SQL Server database administrators and sql developers with the release of MS SQL Server 2005. So partitioning tables is important.

You know one of the newest enhancements in Microsoft SQL Server is policy based management (PBM). You can manage multiple servers with policy based management.

You can also define policies to take control of your sql server instances and the databases within those instances.

Auditing has perhaps an important improvement among the other database topics in SQL2008.

DBCC CHECKDB is one of the most important commands that a SQL Administrator should know.

New data types like spatial types, new features like Transparent Database Encryption (TDE), data compression, redesigned components like Fulltext Search should be taken into care with this new certification exam for new SQL Server edition MS SQL Server 2008.

But as a summary, although 70-432 is a certification exam for MS SQL Server 2008 implementation and maintenance, it is not focusing only what is new with SQL Server 2008. So if you are working on SQL Server frequently covering different aspects and features of the SQL Server, you can feel free to take the 70-432 certification exam.

I feel good luck from now on to whom planning to take Microsoft Certification Exam 70-432.
