    Personally I think that 2005 is still young enough to for these certifications. At least when you take them the upgrade to 2008 won't be that hard after all.

    You are far far away for certification in SQL 2008 [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />] as mentioned by Frank go for SQL 2005 and just upgrade in SQL 2008 when they are ready.<br /><br /><b>Satya SKJ</b><br />Microsoft SQL Server MVP<br />Writer, Contributing Editor & Moderator<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com>http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com</a><br /><center><font color="teal"><font size="1">This posting is provided AS IS with no rights for the sake of <i>knowledge sharing. <hr noshade size="1">Knowledge is of two kinds.

    I would also suggest to go for the sQL 2005 EXAMS as they are readily avalable and sql 2008 will maybe not available in 2008[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';)' />]<br /><br />AKTHAR

    Waiting is nothing but you are wasting your time and will take longer time than at present, you may not have same zeal to complete such certification [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />], good point that why you want to do certification.<br /><br /><b>Satya SKJ</b><br />Microsoft SQL Server MVP<br />Writer, Contributing Editor & Moderator<br /<a target="_blank" href=http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com>http://www.SQL-Server-Performance.Com</a><br />@<a target="_blank" href=http://www.askasqlguru.com/>http://www.askasqlguru.com/</a><br /><br /><center><font color="teal"><font size="1">This posting is provided AS IS with no rights for the sake of <i>knowledge sharing. <hr noshade size="1">Knowledge is of two kinds.
