I am pleased to report that I got my other SQL Server exam passed today. 70-228 Installing, Configuring, and Administering SQL Server 2000. I had been looking at the exam materials over the last few months in the absence of any other specific objectives. With my objectives set to .NET, I managed to get the exam in quickly this week to get a result for my studies before I get my head down for the next exam.
That means I have one core exam to sit if I want MCDBA, but my focus is now on the three c# .NET exams to take me to MCSD.NET.
The exam I passed ? As you would expect, lots of stuff on administration – backups, security, indexes and the like. And for some reason it wasn’t as scary as the developer exam, but that was probably down to timing.
