Sitting the 70-461 Tomorrow

Hi,

I am sitting the 70-461 tomorrow. I have some MS SQL Server experience from way back and have several years of experience with MySQL, as well as some experience with SQLite, Postgres, Access. I read the MS Press training kit and watched the videos on Microsoft Virtual Academy, as well as numerous free videos on YouTube. I've also spent quite a bit of time on MS TechNet and have been running exercises in an Amazon EC2 instance. I prepared around 1300 flashcards and have been reviewing them every day. I'm rather extraordinarily talented with computers, but I'm really wondering if I am going to pass tomorrow--the vast majority of posters who have passed 70-461 have years of experience with MS SQL Server, and at this point, I have only months.

Does anyone have any last minute cramming resources that I could review?

    All the best, I keep putting it off icon_sad.gif. I think best you can do is review your notes and make sure you get enough rest, last thing you need to be doing is fighting off yawns (and hunger pangs.........my last exam my tummy was growling because I forgot to eat breakfast - that's what happens when one panics) during the test.

    I agree with Z. Make sure you are rested and fed.

    Is second shot available in your location? If it is, you should take the test ASAP. Next time you say you are putting it off all the people who contribute to the SQL Server forums are going to start down voting all your posts! icon_wink.gif

    Says the guy who has put off the Azure exam for two months...

    Hey, thanks everyone. I have been reading TechNet pretty much all day - it is astonishing how many errors and omissions there are in the training kit. I found a couple of errors on TechNet too....

    I passed it by a fairly broad margin. My score was not as impressive as some I've seen, but it was definitely decent. Apparently, some of my MySQL knowledge is portable. :D
