I passed 70-229 this morning (with a score of 864). I
originally read the MS book you mention, but found it
*very* dry. The writing style was not very good at all,
and it was a struggle to get through it all. To cap it
all off, Replication wasn't covered at all (apart from a
glancing mention in the second section), which is a BIG
mistake as you will need to go through the various
Replication configurations for the exam.

I had my exam scheduled in but didn't feel happy about it
so I put it back a week and got the QUE book for 70-229
by Thomas Moore:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-
/0735711291/qid=1083077309/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/002-5749824-
0299269?v=glance&s=books

What a change! I read it cover to cover in 4 days. The
writing style makes it a lot easier to get through and I
find myself taking it in a lot better. After reading the
QUE book, I felt a lot more confident about the exam and
took it a week later with no problems.

The QUE book does have a LOT of mistakes though (50+, I
would estimate)! Thankfully they are minor typos and
easy-to-spot errors, and in fact they actually help you
to study the material as you get quite proficient at
spotting them.

Overall, I would say ditch the MS book and get the QUE
book. Also, "Inside SQL Server" is a big favourite with
lots of other people on here, but I haven't read that.

Hope that helps!

You're going to write it? And you haven't even taken it yet?

Dear Haris,

70-229 is not too hard. For the beginners is only have 44
question. And its about: "Database Normalization", "Stored
Procedure and Trigger", "SQL Server 2000 Features" like
Profiler, Query Analyzer, etc.

I have passed it by score: 909

I Do not have a special books. Its only base on my
experience, a little bit "analytic & logic" that's all. So
u dont be worried, just do the best! U can do it!!!!!!
