Passed 70-458, Upgraded to MCSA

I passed 458 last weekend. SSIS part was pretty easy for me since I have used it for a few years extensively and DBA had some challenging questions, but was not too bad. Does anyone have recommended reading for 70-464 or 459? I am thinking about going for the upgrade to MSCE but not too sure what to study. I have overlooked the skills and objectives and it seems like an extension of 461 and 462 tests.

    I used the Training kits 461/462/463 and Introducing SQL 2012 books to learn the new 2012 material. 462 (DBA) material was most difficult for me since I am not exposed to the wide variety of DBA tasks on a daily basis so I needed to refresh that material the most in addition to the new 2012 features. Depending on your experience level, the training kits may or may not be sufficient for the exams.
