Upon successful completion, students will be able to perform complex queries, use the transact SQL language, administer system access and end-users, plan back-ups, and carry out disaster recovery policies. This course helps prepare students to write the MS SQL Server implementation and design certification exam.

Additional Comments:
Attendance: As this is an on-line course, attendance requires participation in the course, not time in a classroom. However, students must ensure that they complete their required participation in online discussions and other similar assignments. Online meeting/discussion forums times may be arranged in conjunction with the students availability.

Missed Exams: Quizzes and periodic tests must be written when scheduled for the class. This policy may be modified should the student submit written documentation, acceptable to the instructor, supporting a valid reason for missing the quiz or test (i.e. family or personal emergency, etc.). If an approved alternate quiz or test is not available or cannot be scheduled, the weighting of the final exam may be adjusted to compensate at the discretion of the instructor. The student will not successfully complete the course without passing the final exam and completing at least 50% of scheduled quizzes and tests.

The letter grade will be determined by the college at which you are registered.

Late assignments: Late assignments will not be marked without the student having made prior arrangements with the instructor.
