Studying for Microsoft 70-463 ( Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 )

For those of you out there who wish to get your MCSA SQL Server 2012, this is my path of choice, I hope it helps some of you out:


  1. Take the free Jump Start course from MVA
  2. Practice and brush up on features using the Microsoft Virtual Lab for Exploring MDS and DQS, about half way down the page.
  3. Pull together 60 practice questions. which you can take as well.
  4. Pull together 60 more practice questions.
  5. Pull together 60 more practice questions.
  6. Pull together a few more practice questions.
  7. Found someone else's 86 practice questions.
  8. Buy the MeasureUp practice exam and hammer it to death.
  9. Go take the test.

Microsoft even offers their own practice test for this exam if you wish to purchase it.  The real exam may or may not include any of the questions compiled in any set of practice questions.

That said, practice tests are only a means of validating a persons knowledge.  The MVA class and Virtual Lab are where the actual learning should take place.
