Personally, I think it's a good idea to have more than just basic knowledge
of SQL and plan to do 70-229 myself... There's lots of bits a developer
won't normally use in SQL server that are useful to know about!

IMHO, I don't see the point in doing a windows apps exam then a web app exam
and completely skip the most important part... Data manipulation!
