Send me a mail at jason143@gmail.com and we can discuss further on this 🙂

hi jason,
though my question is not related to the above post, but thought to get a quick answer from you.
I want to get a certification on "SQL Server 2008, Business Intelligence Development and Maintainence". Can you please suggest or help me in this regard. Can you provide the dumps that we can go through or tests that we can practice?

Hi Pallavi,
A couple of things
– Do you want to go for the 2008 BI certification or wait another month so that you can get yourself certified on 2012 BI? I would say that the 2012 BI would be more beneficial. (Ofcourse, it is a bit more tougher though)
– Secondly, I am really against dumps as you wont learn anything from them. However, practice tests are very good and there are lots of vendors providing practice tests. I blogged about one of them here http://road-blogs.blogspot.com/2011/10/ucertify-70-448-prepkit-review.html (You will get a 10% discount also from the coupon code there in my blog)
– If you are not thinking of spending money, I would say to go through the 70-448 self paced training kit (http://www.amazon.com/MCTS-Self-Paced-Training-Exam-70-448/dp/0735626367). If you go through it completely, you can breeze through the 2008 BI certification exam.
Wishing you the best for your exams
