I've been trying so sneakily install Windows 7 sp1 (without network admin approval) for several weeks to no avail.
After rebooting today I am prompted to allow install by our IT big brother organization. It has been installing for 1.5 hours now so I am SOL for getting work down right now. Upside is I can install my SQL Server 2012 Developer version which I have been wanting to for months.
I am working my way through the TK 70-448 book after taking the sample test and scoring 53%. Considering I have not had any real training in BI except on the job doing I consider that a good starting point.
I am finding out along the way that my predecessor also only scratched the surface of SSIS capabilities. There are a ton of features and functionality she did not take advantage of for whatever reason. This should give me a ton of real-world experience once I get through the material.
