One MS exam short of MCITP developer...
Spent most of the weekend so far, going over material for the Microsoft SQL 2005 developer certification 70-441, which I'll be sitting tomorrow morning. The training material for this is a bit thin on the ground still (Victor Isakov had a book coming out about now but I believe this has been delayed).
Darren Gosbell has a list of resources on his blog here.
I've taken this exam once in beta, but just missed out. Need to pass to complete my MCITP database developer, and then just one more exam 70-443 to complete the MCITP database admin.
I have to say that the more I work with SQL Server 2005, the more I love it! It really is a great product.
