Just as an informational thing...

July 2013 is going to be the deadline to take SQL Server 2008 test (according to QA sections of new certifications). With the new certification track Microsoft has come up with the test are no longer version specific. You can get questions on SQL 2005, 2008 and 2012 versions. (Which I love that idea.) A good write up on the certification changes can be found on Brent Ozar's site.

You might consider just start studying for the new ones...

You could do worse than start here with the MCTS SQL Server 2008 books...

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
