Hello Everyone,

I am currently a grad student in MIS with interests in BI and DW fields.I don't have any prior work experience in these fields apart from college projects in BI. I want to get a head start in the BI field and i am at loss for proper guidance.I am planning to study for this exam as it covers all of the MS BI suite which i have worked on,although to a limited extent.

I wanted to know whether it's a good idea to give this exam w/o any work experience and if yes,whether i should just go ahead and start reading the official prep guide as it will get me familiar with the MS BI suite to a good extent.

I've been searching the web looking for training material for certifications 70-515, 70-516, 70-513. There's pages & pages of sites with practise exams, but I haven't found any online training or books which will help me fill-in any gaps. I've done web programming, DB & OO work for years & I have been working with ASP.Net C# for a while. I just need something that will cover the exam material for anything I have not used yet.

Does anyone know anywhere I can find a good book/manual or tutorial which is targetted towards these certifications?

Hello everyone,

I want to ask you which exam is harder 70-503(Windows Communication Foundation) or 70-502(Windows Presentation Foundation).
I have passed the 70-536 exam, I don't have any expirience with WCF or WPF. What will you recommend me ? Which exam to start preparing, and which exam I will overcome faster: 70-502 or 70-503. I think that 70-502 WPF is more simple than 70-503 WCF. What do you think ?

Thank you,

Hello.  I have just spent a day and a half uninstalled SQL 2008, installing SQL 2008R2 and trying to attach the three samples databases.  Eventually got AWDW2008 and Northwind but the AdventureWorks2008 refuses to attach because the Documents folder is being read as a file and the path therefore fails.

I have tried it with and without the documents folder and it fails whatever I do.  I've downloaded the sample code from the CD and the MS site, both versions fail.

I would appreciate some suggestions, please.
