MCITP: Database Developer

It took another 6 weeks to prepare and pass two exams for MCITP: Database Developer Certification. First was PRO: Designing and Optimizing Data Access by Using Microsoft®
SQL Server™ 2005
and than PRO: Designing Database Solutions by Using Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005.
The learning process brought a lot of new. Exams and learning are a great compensator for the narrow view we have, limited by corporate environments, where 80% of product features are unused.
As said before exams now much better determine concentrations. The development exams were much easier for me than DBA exams. And yes, I know that I can have multiple attempts, but it just my personal preference to pass exams from first attempt.
So now I have 2 current MCITP certifications - SQL developer and SQL DBA.
