    Book + measureup practice exams. I also made myself flash cards for things I struggled with and re-wrote them several times (repetition helps me)

    Congratulations. In my opinion, that's a really useful exam to pass, because it's full of stuff I use on a daily basis.

    Congratulations! When you say "Book", do you mean the Training Kit (Exam 70-461) Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (MCSA) (Microsoft Press Training Kit) by Dejan Sarka et al.?
