SQL Server 2012 Certification Nearly Here

UPDATE: As per this thread on Born to Learn (SQL Server 2012 Certifications), beta exams will go live mid-March 2012.

While reviewing threads on the MSDN Training and Certification Forum, I read a reply from Nilkamal0007 in relation to a question on SQL Server 2012 certification. What caught my eye about this particular reply was that Nilkamal0007 provided links to exam content published in Microsoft’s exam catalogue; something I didn’t know had been published.  So what does this mean?  It means that the Beta cycle for these exams is close to going live.

I don’t know the exact release dates for the new SQL Server 2012 certifications (or when the beta period actually begins) however the exam catalogue does show the following:

    Hello, Can you please give me any material to prepare for the 70-461 exam on SQL server 2012?

    • Mr. Wharty's Ramblings says:

      There is no official study material available so you can either use the Skills Measured for the exam to research content via MSDN or do the following course: 10774A: Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (5 Days)
