    Hi ,

    Anybody recently took this exam. Is it different from the previons SQL Exams. Ms has more simulation question for the new exams. Is the SQL 2005(70-431) also simulative questions?

    I've taken the exam, and I took it's predecessor as well. This one was more technical in nature, with less design questions. Atleast the exam I took.

    (a) How many questions - around 40
    (b) Duration -180 mins
    (c) % pass mark - 700 out of 1000
    (d) Best Practices - If you have sql server experience, i think no need to go for coaching and all. But you must practice all the new features of SQL Server 2005.

    Hi Madhu Sorry i am putting more quastions ??.
    That means not exactly number of quastions and each quastion carries different weightage of marks?does this exam is multiple choice?
    now i am going through book implementation and maintanance for MCTS is that ok to get basic idea for this exam.
    thanking you

    I took it this week and passed with a score 982. Just after getting it, I wrote my thoughts and comments about questions and simulations. You can read it from here:<br /><br /<a target="_blank" href=http://zieglers.wordpress.com/2007/01/23/exam-70-431-ts-microsoft-sql-server-2005%e2%80%94implementation-and-maintenance/>http://zieglers.wordpress.com/2007/01/23/exam-70-431-ts-microsoft-sql-server-2005%e2%80%94implementation-and-maintenance/</a><br /><br />Ensure you have some experience on Management Studio before you get the exam! <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' /><br /><br />zieglers

    what kind of expirience you are saying about? about all kinds of properties or usage.

  11. zieglers New Member

    You don't need to know exactly all kinds of properties. However, in order to save exam time and efficiently use it, you need to know where to click and look for some properties either directly or indirectly asked in question text.

    what kind of tools or help we can use in exam hall?

    Simply nothing except scratch pad and calculator. No mobile phones, no PDAs, no pencil-paper, no bags...
