This morning I have attended the 1Z0-047 Database Sql Expert beta exam and expecting around 80% of it. The exam has 139 question with 3hrs of time. However, I have completed the exam just before the give time, i.e. within 2hr 45 minutes.
This was my first beta exam and I have felt that the duration of the exam is too long with plenty of . There were couple of questions with absolutely wrong choices(answers) and few of the questions were redundant.
But, the exam prepration has refreshed my sql basics once again and also helped me to learn new SQL aggregated function like, GROUPING, GROUPING_SETS, ROLLUP,CUBE, and other few new feature of SQL (WITH CLAUSE, Multitable Inserts, MERGE).
Well, I have to wait 2 or more months in order to receive the score sheet and ofcourse the result whether I am through or not.
In my opinion, this exam is more suitable for the Developer who are in touch with writing queries and upto date of sql funtion. Definately, a piece of cake for them with NO REALL CHALLENGES.
