On Preparing for the MCITP: BI Developer Certification

Kudos to world-reknowned consultant, trainer and blogger Teo Lachev, founder of Prologika and author of Applied Microsoft Analysis Services 2005, on his latest efforts. A new training guide, MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-445): Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Business Intelligence—Implementation and Maintenance is designed to help you prepare for the first of two Microsoft certification exams towards the MCITP: Business Intelligence Developer designation. The guide is now available from Microsoft Press and can be ordered on Amazon.

Although a book like this is certainly long overdue, I expect it to be a huge success-- I happen to know more than a few BI developers and consultants out there eager to pick up this new title. Congratulations to Teo (who provided the SSAS 2005 content) and his co-authors Erik Veerman, Dejan Sarka, and Javier Loria.
