    The MCSE Training kit for this exam Microsoft SQl Server 2000 System Administration has come up with the second edition.I just wanted an opinion whether to buy the first edition or the second edition.

    A second edition usually means that the contents have been amended. If the first edition was still valid, they wouldn't spend money on the editing, but just continue selling the first edition.

    Another question would be if you still need qualifications for SQL 2000 - why not SQL 2005?

    I have been working on SQl2000 for over a year and I dont foresee my clients going in for SQL 2005.So I decided to go ahead with certification for MCDBA for SQL 2000.I was searching for books and found this reference hence I just wanted to get some opinions.

    Go for second edition as suggested by Adriaan and refer under MS Press about book references.

    Also, once you get your 2000 MCDBA, you only need to take one test to get your 2005 certification.
