Exam A Q33 correct answer is C in my opinion.
It states that the string has to be appended to the column.
Script in D would add the string to the beginning not the end of the column.

Thanks. Did study the whole toolkit but the real questions were valuable. The questions are being updated and different variations of questions occur so knowledge of the content is still needed.

Passed from a week ago with 733 for part 1 (querying) and 866 for part 2 Administration) , some Querying questions (part 1) are out of the dump, you should not study this dump based on memorizing the answer's letters and order because the choices order is not similar to the order in the dump.

The exam is two parts, the first one is related to Querying topics and the second one is related to the Administration ones, the Administration part answers are more accurate than the development ones, also all Administration questions are from the dump.

Thanks for Derek and AnotherInbox :) :)

Exam B, Q3: the answer with WHERE .. AND.. (D) is correct because it is the most susceptible to use the non-clustered index on the PurchaseTime column. The one with WHERE CONVERT .. = CONVERT .. will not use the index, because the WHERE predicate is not a search argument (SARG), i.e. it manipulates the filter column.

  • Jan 04, 2013

Q.38 I think answer should be F, transactional replication. This is the only one that provide a secondary database that is accessible for reporting, has minimum latency and allows supplementary indexes to be created. AlwaysOn availability group secondary replicas are read-only, so any of the options that mentions them will produce strictly read-only databases, so no indexes other than what already exists in the primary DB will be possible.

Thanks for the great effort in this dump, but i think the answer of question 28 in Exam A is incorrect, the question is related to the CTE (Common table expression) and the correct answer is B not A

I've got a question,
I face question like Exam A Q19 or Exam A Q20, Appear just option A, and in the answer the correct query, I think in that case, we must to write the correct query right?? In the real Exam do we face question like that? Or all answers should be a, b, c,,, ??
Thanks a lot for help.

Exam A Q17
Proposed solution is
SELECT.. FROM Customers INNER JOIN Orders.. ORDER BY OrderDate.
I created the tables and added some data and this query returns all combinations Order-Customer rather than one line per customer
So I propose.
SELECT LastName, MAX (OrderDate) AS MostRecentOrderDate
FROM Orders AS O
JOIN Customers AS C
ON O.CustomerID = C.CustomerID
GROUP BY LastName

Exam D, Q28. SQL Browsers is required in many cases related to namedinstances. Maybe if you type in the serverinstance name in the MD conf. manager it works, my vote would go to browser service. In other words the answer is correct imo.

Exam D, Q28.

Application unable to connect to database on a named instance.

Answer is either:

Start the Browser Service or
Use the Master Data Services Configuration Manager to configure the application.

I would favour "Master Data Services Config mgr"

Exam A, Q14
requires: the view must prevent the underlying structure from being changed (solved with schemabinding)
requires: must be resolved no matter the user's schema (solved with two part naming)
Solution in the dump:
create view as select.. from table
My proposition
CREATE VIEW Sales.uv_CustomerFullName
WITH SCHEMABINDING
AS
SELECT FirstName, LastName
FROM Sales.Customers
--assuming customers is in sales

I agree on Exam A, Q28, the correct answer is b, not a. You HAVE to consider the datecolumns (from cte and targettable) and this has to be done in the correct way if you want to keep the correct rows.

Exam C, Q44
Two tables Div1Cust & Div2Cust. None of the rows in Div1Cust exist in Div2Cust.
Answer given uses "UNION" but "UNION ALL" executes more efficient and, because rows in both tables are unique anyway, UNION ALL would return same result as the UNION clause.
So wouldn't UNION ALL be a better choice than UNION?

Exam A, Q 36. Profits table with columns Territory, Year & Profit.

I think the answer should use "LAG(Profit, 1, 0) OVER(PARTITION BY Territory ORDER BY Year)"
and not "LEAD(Profit, 1, 0) OVER(PARTITION BY Territory ORDER BY Year)",
as need todisplay profits for preceding years as well.

The question with orderdetails/customers/orders, requires to write a sp to return all order ids AFTER a specific date, takes a varchar which is not correctly compared.
Answer is
SELECT . WHERE Orders.OrderDate > CONVERT (datetime, @Parameter1
This means and order placed during that specified date will be returned.
I would go with
SELECT . WHERE Orders.OrderDate >= DATEADD (d, 1, CONVERT (datetime, @Parameter1))
I would appreciate any comments on this issue.

@raj raji:
Yes, you have to purchase the software. I would recommend purchasing the package that gets you both the Manager and the Designer.

http://www.avanset.com/products/visual-certexam-suite.html

Then you'll be able to see all questions (with the Manager)and even be able to add to them, fix them, and offer feedback on them (with the Designer).
