Is 70-431 the only exam needed for SQL 2005 cert?

    The MCDBA designation is being phased out. If you pass the 70-431, you become a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist in SQL Server 2005.

    The replacement of the MCDBA is the Microsoft Certified IT Prefessional, which has three options, each which takes passing three tests to get.

    Thanks Brad,

    I am finding the total of 6 exams:
    70-431 Microsoft SQL Server 2005-Implementation and Maintenance
    70-441 Designing Database Solutions by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005
    70-442 Designing and Optimizing Data Access by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005
    70-443 PRO: Designing a Database Server Infrastructure by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005
    70-444 PRO: Optimizing and Maintaining a Database Administration Solution by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005

    70-447 UPGRADE: MCDBA Skills to MCITP Database Administrator by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005

    Am I right to assume that if I have a current MCDBA all I need is 70-447?
    Could you direct me to some resource that clearly explains it?

    Tnank you kindly!
