5out of 5

Pros: Well-written, Accurate, Helpful examples, Easy to understand

Best Uses: Intermediate, Certification Resource, Student

Describe Yourself: Sql Database Administrato

I've passed the 70-448 exam, BI for SQL 2008. The 70-463 exam concentrates mostly on the SSIS part of the Microsoft BI stack. This MS Press Training Kit covers all of the enhancements made to SSIS in 2012. It also covers the design of a data warehouse. There's a lot here.

The authors did a good job in matching the books sections to the exam objectives. I thought the examples were clear and easy to follow. The practice exam, included on the CD, will come in handy when I'm closer to exam time.

I think this book will be enough for me to pass the 70-463 exam. But if you have no SSIS background you may want to also use some other resources.
