Are you still pursuing a SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, or BizTalk Server 2006 certification? What about your MCDST? Well, time's a wastin'. The exams that are required to earn these certifications retire on June 30th.* After June 30th, 27 different exams will no longer be available to take at Prometric. (Tick tock!)
Haven't scheduled your test yet? Run, don't walk, to Prometric.com and schedule it right now. Sometimes the seats fill up close to the date when we are retiring a bunch of exams.
For a full list of the exams that will be retiring on June 30th, check out our Discontinued Exams page.
*With the exception of 70-536, which will still be available to support requirements for the Visual Studio 2008 certifications.
I would like to know how to get started on Microsoft Certifications in general. I am really interested in pursuing a career as a database administrator or devloper. I have a degree in MIS and have touched on just about everything IT related, but would like to start my certs with SQL. How do I start?
