Yesterday, I wrote the hardest exam every.. 70-431 TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 – Implementation and Maintenance.  I choose this exam as a way to help me get my MCT but that is another story. Anyways, a small study group formed and we worked every Saturday for 2 months to finish the MS Press book! Then the Vista 620 study group came into being and that brought the SQL study group to a standstill. So after passing both 70-620 and 70-622 I started back on the 431 exam, since I did put all that hard work into study for it.

This exam was broken into two parts, 35 question and 12 simulations!

I found that the simulations where hard mostly because not of the training material that I used to study for this exam had any simulation on them! Yes they did have labs but on their testing software none of them had any simulations. So if you are going to take this exam make or any other exam with simulation make sure that you work your way through the examples and labs in the training material, otherwise you will have no idea how to do anything in the simulations! I’m glad that I did.
