What are the objectives of this course?
In this course, candidates will fully understand the concepts behind Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and how to build and query complex database solutions in a real-world environment. Students will also get 12 months access to our dedicated Live Labs where they will be able to recreate course scenarios and design new database solutions without building a costly lab of their own.
- Microsoft 70-641: Querying SQL Server 2012
- Microsoft 70-462: Administering SQL Server 2012 Databases
- Microsoft 70-643: Implementing a Data Warehouse with SQL Server 2012
After completing the three MCSA SQL Server 2012 modules, students will then shift focus to the elements that make the MCSE SQL 2012 Data Platform with two additional modules.
