MCITP Business Intelligence Developer 2008 Certified! Passed 70-452 (71-452)

Posted by denglishbi on October 24, 2008

Just checked my email this morning and last night I got the email results from taking the 71-452 PRO Designing a Business Intelligence Infrastructure Using Microsoft SQL Server 2008 test and I passed!  Here was the official email from Microsoft Certification program:

Congratulations on earning your Microsoft Certified IT Professional: Busines Intelligence Developer 2008 certification! We hope you enjoy the benefits of your certification and of membership in the Microsoft Certified Professional community.

If you are planning on taking the test I would recommend reviewing the preparation guide that you can review here.  You can also take a look at my feedback in regards to the exam here. Just a quick reminder that this is not the same format as the SQL Server 2005 MCITP 70-446 exam and it is focused on the SQL Server 2008 new features.  Good luck!

So now that means that I am fully Microsoft BI Certified for SQL Server 2005 and 2008Smile

Supposedly I could have just taken the upgrade exam, 70-455 – Upgrade: Transition your MCITP Business Intelligence Developer Skills to MCITP Business Intelligence Developer 2008, since I already have the 2005 certification.  Unfortunately I don’t see any details on that yet on the Microsoft Certification site.
