    Hello friends!

    I have certain questions regarding MCTS 70-445. I have been working in MS
    SQL Server 2005 BIDS since last 7 months using IS, RS, AS. I have now planned
    to go for this MS certification(exam 70-445) to increase my confidence
    regarding the technology, as well as to increase my market value.

    My questions are:
    1. What are the benifits that one can get form this Certification(as
    compared to non -certified BI professionals)?
    2. What is the global market scenario(reagrding MS SQL Server 2005) as SQL
    Server 2008 is to be launched this month?
    3. What method should one take to approach this exam?

    Is there anybody out there to advice me reagrding these? I would be glad as
    this is the first time I am going for any MS certifications.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello there,

    Having studied and taken 70-445 I can recommend it if you are interesting in
    the BI tools SSIS, SSAS and SSRS and are wanting to give yourself that extra
    bit of confidence. My workplace wanted me to take the exam so that the
    business could be assured I knew what I was talking about. I spent about 2
    months working through the self-paced study guide (Microsoft Press) and felt
    comfortable taking the exam. Take a lot of practice tests so you feel
    comfortable in the exam environment.

    Businesses are slowly upgrading to SQL 2005 but I can't imagine many
    businesses are adopting SQL 2008 yet.

    It helped me quite a bit as I've already solved a few problems I wouldn't
    have know how to do.

    I recommend it.
