Last year (and this year too) I had set the goal to renew my certification.  I failed miserably at it last year with the exception that I at least bought the vouchers and did a little bit of studying.  I never really set some time aside to achieve that goal.  Things are a bit different this year.

I am finally taking that plunge.  I have scheduled my first exam (70-432) for Friday morning.  If things go as planned, I will be taking 70-433 next week.  I am currently studying for the 70-433 exam because I feel comfortable with the 70-432 material.

One thing I don’t like about the process is availability of testing sites.  Years ago when I did my first round of certifications on SQL 2000, there were tons of testing centers.  Now, there are only four such centers in all of Utah – none of them within an hours drive of me.

  1. Here’s where I went:
    No cost difference, they took my voucher and everything, you just have to work with their schedule. I’m in Utah County, but needed to take my test when MATC was closed for 3 weeks to move to Thanksgiving Point so I made the drive into Salt Lake.

    Good luck on you next test!

  2. Jason, Where are you located? There is an ExecuTrain in SLC that will schedule tests for individuals if they have space, but they don’t show up in the Prometric listing because they are a private testing center. I upgraded my cert there earlier this year and it went well. If that is closer than Thanksgiving Point or Ogden, you might give it a try and see if they can get you in.

    1. Yes that would be closer – depending on address. Thanksgiving point is a long drive but easy to get to. I’m out west in Tooele county.
