Exam 70-432: Week 2

Week 2 is finished. I didn't do as much hands-on practicing as I should have, partly because I participated in Global Accessibility Awareness Day by captioning some news video for Amara.

Here's what was done:
  • Self-Test for Chapter 7 in The Real MCTS SQL Server 2008 Exam 70-432 Prep Kit
  • Practice tests for Chapters 8, 9 and 10 in the Lab Manual
  • Asked a question about the BIT data type and row compression in SQL Server Central 
  • Posted this blog entry.
I didn't do quite as well on the tests this week: 16/20 in the Self-Test and failing the Practice Test by one question.

Next week, I'm going to try a different approach. Instead of doing all the reading first, then practicing, I'll complete the reading and practicing for each chapter, one at a time.

Speaking of next week, the topic is Managing SQL Server Security.

Next week's reading is Chapters 14, 18 and 19 in the Carpenter book, and Chapters 4 and 5 in Horninger.

The assignments (due 5/20/2012):
  • Self-Test for Chapter 4 and 5 (Horninger)
  • Hotek: Chapter 8 Lessons 1-3; chapter 11, Lessons 2-6. Practice tests for chapters 8 and 11.
  • Post in an online forum
  • Summarize the week’s work in a blog entry
