Today, I took one more beta exam and this time it was from Microsoft. The exam I took was 71-445 (Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence – Implementation and Maintenance), one of the two beta exams on SQL Server 2005 provided by Microsoft.
When compared with my other exam that I took early this week, this one was quite easy. Totally there were 70 questions and the time given was 210 minutes. Since it is a beta exam I will be getting my results only after 6-8 weeks.
So is there any one else who is sharing a similar story? 😉
6-8 weeks will fly by imperceptibly if you will try to receive the certificate on SQL Exercises :-).
Your site really good. Will try to get that certificate too 😉 (if time permits)
i’m gonna took the exam 18 dec

I have also taken the 71-445 and 71-446 within the last month.
The exams were a great chance for showing the technical experience and knowledge for BI developers. But I must say that the exams were quite hard for me. Since I had not yet dealed with data mining, and also not fully working on topics of SSIS it was difficult to answer the questions. As Sudar has noted the both exams had about 70 questions. And they took about 2,5 hours to complete the full exams.

I am just a beginner in the IT industry having good working knowledge of .NET framework. My senior suggested me to go for this exam. Please can anyone provide me information about training material that I can study and can clear this exam.
You can use the Microsoft self-based training kit for this.
