October - exam season

I'm deep in training. Over the last two weeks I've passed two Microsoft exams Exam 70-447: UPGRADE: MCDBA Skills to MCITP Database Administrator by Using Microsoft SQL Server 2005
Exam 70-431: TS: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance
and earned two certifications MCTS SQL 2005 and MCITP SQL 2005 DBA.
It's interesting that exams became much better now and clearly reflect my knowledge and skills level. I've got lower score on lower level MCTS exam (around 800) which clearly reflect that I'm not working much under field DBA hat (insert tape, etc) and very high (920) score on architect level MCITP exam.
