    2005 but don't know what is the exam no.

    MCTS and MCITP Database Admin. certificates and which one is the best.

    Thanks

  2. Hi Ahmed!

    Just check Microsofts certification page for all details of the
    certifications. SQL Server 2005 is not the current version, so maybe you
    want to directly check for the 2008 exams?
    MCTS is the general Microsoft Certified Technologie Specialist which is the
    first certification level with SQL Server certifications. The MCITP is an
    enhanced certification which has the MCTS certification as prerequesite.

    The page about the sql server certifications:
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx

    So as far as I understood you, these exams are the ones you are interested
    in:
    MCTS:
    Exam 70-431: TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Implementation and Maintenance

    MCITP: Database Administrator (MCTS: SQL Server 2005 required!):
    Exam 70-443: PRO: Designing a Database Server Infrastructure by Using
    Microsoft SQL Server 2005
    and
    Exam 70-444: PRO: Optimizing and Maintaining a Database Administration
    Solution by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005


    The 2008 exams are (Which I would target today!):
    MCTS: SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance:
    Exam 70-432: TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Installation and Maintenance

    MCITP: Database Administrator 2008 (required: MCTS: SQL Server 2008,
    Implementation and Maintenance):
    Exam 70-450: PRO: Designing, Optimizing and Maintaining a Database Server
    Infrastructure using Microsoft SQL Server 2008


    With kind regards,

    Konrad

    Hi Conrad,

    Just want to verify. I am targeting the SQL Server 2005 certification path.
    I had already book exam 70:431 TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Implementation
    and Maintenance exam. I wonder if there's prerequisite in this exam cause
    according to my friend, before I take MCTP, i should at least have one MCP
    certification. Is this true? It is not mentioned here ->
    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server.aspx#tab2

    Thanks!

    Regards,
    Clint
