MS SQL Server 70-459, Transition Your MCITP: Database Administrator 2008 or MCITP: Database Developer 2008 to MCSE: Data Platform

This exam(70-459) is intended for candidates who have already earned the MCITP: Database Administrator 2008, or MCITP: Database Developer 2008, certification and who wish to transition their skills to MCSE: Data Platform on SQL Server 2012.

This exam includes two sessions, respectively “70-464 Developing SQL 2012 Database” and “Design Database Solution for SQL 2012”. Your scores for these tow sessions are calculated separated and your final score for the exam is the lower one. If you lower one is less than 700, then you fail in this exam. Fortunately, this didn’y happen on me.

In term of question types, there are four types.

  • 1. Match(or drag and drop)
  • 2. hotspot(you need to hit the right spot on the UI in order to achieve the requirements tasked in question)
  • 3. Multiple choices
  • 4. Case study(This is new. I did not see this in 70-457 and 70-458. According to the case, you need to answer 5 questions{still multiple choices} after the case story)

If I remember correctly, they are 49 questions including 5 cases studies(maybe 3 case studies).

My experience on this exam was good though someone before told me this exam is tough. Seems not my case. I got 933 out of 1000 for both sessions. So what? Passed. MCSE–Data Platform.

  1. Hi Derek,
    Your transcript shows 70-459 to be based on 70-464 and 70-465.
    Did the transcripts for 70-457 and 70-458 show similar breakdowns?
    I ask as the study books are based on the core exams, not the upgrade path that I need to take too.
    Thanks
    Rich

  2. Congratulations, could you provide the reviewer / dump that you have used to pass the exam. Appreciate if you could reply. Thanks!
