Overview

On this 3 day accelerated MCSE: Data Management and Analytics (Developing SQL Server Databases) course, you'll be introduced to SQL Server 2014, logical table design, indexing and query plans.

This Developing Microsoft SQL Server Databases course, which is 50% faster than traditional training, will develop your understanding of SQL Server, the new features in SQL Server 2014 and the important capabilities across the SQL Server data platform. Some of the specific skills you'll walk away with include:

  • An understanding of the entire SQL Server platform and its major tools
  • An awareness of good design practices regarding SQL Server tables and be able to create tables using T-SQL
  • Determining appropriate single column and composite indexes strategies
  • Performing basic investigation of a deadlock situation and learn how transaction isolation levels affect application concurrency
  • Using both traditional T-SQL error handling code and structured exception handling
  • Learning appropriate uses for SQL CLR integration and implement an existing .NET assembly within SQL Server

With Firebrand being Microsoft Learning Partners, you'll benefit from the latest Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC), which you'll be guided through by our experienced Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCT). Our instructors' rich experience in combination with our unique Lecture | Lab | Review approach, will accelerate your learning and develop your hands-on experience, so you're ready to apply your new skills when you return to work.

On this course, you will be prepared for and sit the 70-464 Developing SQL Server Databases exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee. Exam 70-464 is an elective for the MCSE: Data Management and Analytics certification.

This course is designed for IT professionals looking to develop their skills on SQL Server 2014 and technologies used to implement a database.
