In this entry-level Microsoft SQL Server 2012 training, Garth Schulte prepares learners to write queries and implement data warehouses.
The 70-461, 70-462 and 70-463 exams associated with this playlist were revised in 2016, but a large percentage of this course still maps to the current exam objectives and continues to provide value as a training resource.
Though Microsoft has made it relatively easy to migrate data between SQL Server versions, many companies rely on older SQL Server versions for a number of reasons. In addition to exam preparation, this training can serve as reference material for anyone who currently manages databases or data warehouses that still live on SQL Server 2012.
For anyone who manages IT training for a company or team that still supports SQL Server 2012, this SQL Server 2012 training can be used for legacy technology training, on-boarding new systems administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
