MCITP…Should I do it?
I have been contemplating my next move for SQL certification. Last spring, I earned my MCTS for SQL Server 2008 Implementaion and Maintenance passing the 70-432 exam after a couple of months of preparation and a TechSherpas course. The next logical step is the 70-450 which is Designing, Optimizing and Maintaining a Database Administrative Solution using Microsoft SQL Server 2008. The title alone is impressive. I think with this budget year I will have the opportunity to take a bootcamp for this certification.
Should I wait before pursuing this level? Is it recommended to have more experience before taking this exam? What do you think?

Yes, do it! If I can pass it, anyone can. 🙂
I’ve had really good luck with Transcender BTW, might be cheaper than a boot camp. If your company wants to certify multiple people they can also get a bulk discount on Transcender practice exams (and Prometric registrations too, although this has changed recently, not sure how it works).
Great Cert! But you know who won’t increase your yearly salary for having it!
