I work as a QA manager. I would like to change from QA to database (developer or administration). As a tester I have worked intensly in data minig using SQL query. In one of the company I worked as a data analyst involving writing store procedures.
My dilemma is whether to do cerrification in SQL sever 2005 Database Developer of SQL SERVER 2008 database developer. I understand SQL 2008 is recently released and study material is not readily available compare to SQL Sever 2005.
Can somebody give some guidance?

    Check what the upgrade path is from the SQL Server 2005 cert to the 2008 cert. If it's only a single exam, go for the 2005 cert now and the upgrade to 2008 later when more study material has been released. If there is no upgrade path, I would still go with 2005 because there are currently a lot more jobs for SQL 2000/2003/2005 than there are for SQL 2008. I would only go directly for 2008 if my current employer was requiring it.
