1 of 71

[via Rob Farley]

I just found out that from this post, as of 27 June 2007, Rob and I were 2 of only 71 MCITP:BI certified people in the world. It's a bit of a tough exam as it covers a lot of technologies, SSRS, SSIS and SSAS (OLAP and Data Mining) which could almost be 4 exams in themselves.This means that I know more that 7% of the current MCITP:BI certified people in the world.

Now I know I'm not that special  - I don't think anyone really knows all these 4 areas equally, If you think you really know your stuff in a couple of them, use this as an opportunity to study up on the other area(s) and have a go at the exam. Have a look at the exam outline here http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-446.mspx, do a bit of study in the areas that you don't know as much about and give it a go.

Even if you don't sit the exam, learning the stuff in exam outline you will make you a better BI professional.

It would be interesting to see the names in the top 50 in the list. I took the first exam on Mar 21st and 2nd exam on Mar 22nd and passed both. At the time I wondered how many others had taken the test and passed...

Two down, one to go!

Any pointers for 70-456? Is it mainly case studies?

@Andrew - do you mean 446 by any chance? I don't know if the NDA's I am under would allow me to say or not, so I am going to err on the side of caution. I can say that being an IT Pro certification that 446 is at a conceptually higher level than 445.
