    I am looking for a good on-line training course that will
    help me with issues involved in exam 70-229 which is about
    SQL-Server 2000.

    I am not a DBA. I generally work on front end application
    issues using web technologies and windows forms. I have a
    working knowledge of SQL, but my database knowledge is not
    strong enough to pass the exam.

    I want to deepen my knowledge base such that I can develop
    a really good understanding of database issues such as
    Security, detailed Database retrieval, and intelligent use
    of SQL-Server's tuning tools.

    I am familiar with typical "learning-tree" type on-line
    courses that deliver lots of powerpoint slides, but little
    real life hands on experience.

    Ideally, I would like a college type course that lasts for
    several weeks ( at least 12 ) and offers challenging
    weekly assignments that focus on the more difficult
    features of using SQL-Server.

    I suppose I could work through all the examples in one of
    the exam preparation books, but I never seem to have the
    discipline to spend the large chunks of time needed to
    truly deepen my knowledge base.

    I would appreciate any recommendations. I am willing to
    pay a good deal of money for such a course if I find it
    meets my needs, but I am wary of many of the new programs
    that offer cheap degrees in computer science related

    If you find one, please post the details here. I haven't seen any
    legitimate online course like this, but lots of people have asked.
