When he began preparing for my SQLite Proficiency Test (PST) he made a few changes to his plan. Instead of simply copying and pasting my answers from the exam onto his worksheets, he prepared them specifically for the University requirements. He decided that he would leave some of the earlier questions from the previous level off the syllabus, as he thought that they would be too difficult for the newer users to understand. This is a smart move, as older users may already be familiar with some of the earlier questions. By changing his plans, he is ensuring that he is not introducing any surprises to my students.
My consultant has also organized the material that he will be taking into the exam in a logical manner. For example, all references to earlier material are placed at the appropriate locations. He is also making sure that he includes all graphs, charts, and other visual presentations that he will be using in his answer sheets.
In order to get someone to take my SQL quiz for me, I need to be able to provide him with some of the most basic information about my background and qualifications. In fact, I do not even know what kind of consultant I will be, if I am not involved in teaching database design. My only qualification is that I work with people who are responsible for the design and maintenance of their own database servers. I was lucky enough to work with many successful consultants, so I have a pretty good idea of what would be required to successfully take on the job. However, no one can guarantee that they will be able to guide you through the entire process of getting your job as a consultant.
If I had known what kind of courses to expect when I took on the job of a consultant, I could have chosen to go with an approved vendor. My consultant told me that he would look for a vendor that would be able to provide his training in an approved manner. In fact, he said that he would rather hire someone from a well-known database design company than a lesser-known one. By hiring someone from a well-known company, he would be able to make sure that he received the highest quality training possible.
I looked over the information that he provided and was impressed with some of it. It was interesting to learn about how he got his job, the responsibilities he had, and the benefits that came along with the position. I knew that taking an online SQL quiz would help me prepare for taking the actual test, so I decided to purchase the course that he recommended.
Once I completed the course, I started to feel a bit more confident in my abilities. The course did have a number of topics that were not discussed in the main class, but I felt that I learned enough to prepare myself for taking the actual exam. Now, I am extremely nervous about taking the actual exam. Luckily, I have a few friends who also plan on taking the exam soon. They informed me that they would let me borrow their exam books for a couple of nights before they took the real test.
My friends and I are planning on taking the SQL tutorial this coming Friday night. Hopefully, I will be able to use the information that I learned from my course on Friday night to score great and beat out the rest of the field. Then I can sleep well knowing that someone has hired me to take their SQL quiz for them!
