Question 1

Question
Reporting from a Star schema is simpler than reporting from a normalized online transactional processing (OLTP) schema. What are the reasons for wanting simpler reporting? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • A Star schema typically has fewer tables than a normalized schema. Therefore, queries are simpler because they require fewer joins.
  • Star schema has better support for numeric data types than a normalized rela- tional schema; therefore, it is easier to create aggregates.
  • There are specific Transact-SQL expressions that deal with Star schemas.
  • A Star schema is standardized and narrative; you can find the information you need for a report quickly.

Question 2

Question
You are creating a quick POC project. Which schema is the most suitable for this kind of a project?
Answer
  • Star schema
  • Normalized schema
  • Snowflake schema
  • XML schema

Question 3

Question
A Star schema has two types of tables. What are those two types? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • Lookup tables
  • Dimensions
  • Measures
  • Fact tables

Question 4

Question
You implement a Type 2 solution for an SCD problem for a specific column. What do you actually do when you get a changed value for the column from the source system?
Answer
  • Add a column for the previous value to the table. Move the current value of the updated column to the new column. Update the current value with the new value from the source system.
  • Insert a new row for the same dimension member with the new value for the updated column. Use a surrogate key, because the business key is now duplicated. Add a flag that denotes which row is current for a member.
  • Do nothing, because in a DW, you maintain history, you do not update dimen- sion data.
  • Update the value of the column just as it was updated in the source system.

Question 5

Question
Which kind of a column is not a part of a dimension?
Answer
  • Attribute
  • Measure
  • Key
  • Member property
  • Name

Question 6

Question
How can you spot natural hierarchies in a Snowflake schema?
Answer
  • You need to analyze the content of the attributes of each dimension.
  • Lookup tables for each dimension provide natural hierarchies.
  • A Snowflake schema does not support hierarchies.
  • You should convert the Snowflake schema to the Star schema, and then you would spot the natural hierarchies immediately.

Question 7

Question
Over which dimension can you not use the SUM aggregate function for semi-additive measures?
Answer
  • Customer
  • Product
  • Date
  • Employee

Question 8

Question

  • SalesAmount
  • DiscountPct
  • UnitBalance

Question 9

Question
Which kind of a column is not part of a fact table?
Answer
  • Lineage
  • Measure
  • Key
  • Member property

Question 10

Question
Which database objects and object properties can you use for autonumbering? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • IDENTITY property
  • SEQUENCE object
  • PRIMARY KEY constraint
  • CHECK constraint

Question 11

Question
What columns do you add to a table to support Type 2 SCD changes? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • Member properties
  • Current row flag
  • Lineage columns
  • Surrogate key

Question 12

Question
What is an inferred member?
Answer
  • A row in a fact table added during dimension load
  • A row with aggregated values
  • A row in a dimension added during fact table load
  • A computed column in a fact table

Question 13

Question
Which types of data compression are supported by SQL Server? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • Bitmap
  • Unicode
  • Row
  • Page

Question 14

Question

Answer
  • Hash Join
  • Merge Join
  • Scan
  • Nested Loops Join
  • Filter

Question 15

Question
Why would you use indexed views? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • To speed up queries that aggregate data
  • To speed up data load
  • To speed up selective queries
  • To speed up queries that involve multiple joins

Question 16

Question
The database object that maps partitions of a table to filegroups is called a(n)
Answer
  • Aligned index
  • Partition function
  • Partition column
  • Partition scheme

Question 17

Question
If you want to switch content from a nonpartitioned table to a partition of a partitioned table, what conditions must the nonpartitioned table meet? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • It must have the same constraints as the partitioned table.
  • It must have the same compression as the partitioned table.
  • It must be in a special PartitionedTables schema.
  • It must have a check constraint on the partitioning column that guarantees that all of the data goes to exactly one partition of the partitioned table.
  • It must have the same indexes as the partitioned table.

Question 18

Question
Which of the following T-SQL functions is not very useful for capturing lineage information?
Answer
  • APP_NAME()
  • USER_NAME()
  • DEVICE_STATUS()
  • SUSER_SNAME()

Question 19

Question
You need to move data from a production database into a testing database. You need to extract the data from several objects in the source database, but your manager has asked you to only copy about 10 percent of the rows from the largest production tables. The testing database already exists, but without any tables. How would you ap- proach this task?
Answer
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard, copy all tables from the source database to the empty destination database, and delete the excess rows from the largest tables.
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard multiple times—once for all the smaller tables, and once for each large table, using the Write A Query To Specify The Data To Transfer option to restrict the rows
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard, copy all tables from the source database to the empty destination database, and restrict the number of rows for each large table by using the Edit SQL option in the Column Mappings window
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard, configure it to copy all tables from the source database to the empty destination database, save the SSIS package, and then, before executing it, edit it by using SSDT to restrict the number of rows extracted from the large tables.

Question 20

Question
You need to move data from an operational database into a data warehouse for the very first time. The data warehouse has already been set up, and it already contains some reference data. You have just finished preparing views in the operational data- base that correspond to the dimension and fact tables of the data warehouse. How would you approach this task?
Answer
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard and copy data from the dimension and fact views in the operational database into the tables in the data warehouse, by using the Drop And Re-create The Destination Table option in the Column Mappings window for every non-empty destination table.
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard, configure it to copy data from the dimension and fact views in the operational database into the tables in the data warehouse, save the SSIS package, and then edit it by using SSDT to add appropriate data merging functionalities for all destination tables.
  • Use the Import and Export Wizard and copy data from the dimension and fact views in the operational database into the tables in the data warehouse, by using the Merge Data Into The Destination Table option in the Column Mappings win- dow for every non-empty destination table.
  • Use SSDT instead of the Import and Export Wizard, because the wizard lacks ap- propriate data transformation and merging capabilities

Question 21

Question
When SSIS packages are saved to DTSX files, what format is used to store the SSIS package definitions?
Answer
  • They are stored as binary files.
  • They are stored as plain text files.
  • They are stored as XML files.
  • hey are stored as special Microsoft Word documents.

Question 22

Question
Which statements best describe SQL Server Development Tools (SSDT)? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • SSDT is an extension of the SQL Server Management Studio that can be used to create SSIS packages by means of a special wizard.
  • SSDT is a special edition of the SQL Server Management Studio, designed to pro- vide an improved user experience to developers who are not particularly familiar with database administration.
  • SSDT is a special edition of Visual Studio, distributed with SQL Server 2012, provid- ing a rich database development tool set.
  • SSDT is a new service in SQL Server 2012 that can be used to perform SQL Server maintenance tasks, such as data movements and similar data management pro- cesses.

Question 23

Question
Which of the following statements about simple and complex data movements are true? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • Simple data movements only have a single data source and a single data destination
  • Complex data movements require data to be transformed before it can be stored at the destination.
  • In simple data movements, data transformations are limited to data type conversion.
  • In complex data movements, additional programmatic logic is required to merge source data with destination data.

Question 24

Question
Which of the following statements are true? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • An SSIS package can contain one or more SSDT solutions, each performing a specific data management operation.
  • An SSIS project can contain one or more SSIS packages.
  • An SSIS project can contain exactly one SSIS package.
  • SSIS packages contain programmatic logic used in data movements and data transformation operations.

Question 25

Question
The Execute SQL Task allows you to execute SQL statements and commands against the data store. What tools do you have at your disposal when developing SSIS pack- ages to develop and test a SQL command? Choose all that apply.
Answer
  • SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)
  • SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT)
  • The Execute SQL Task Editor
  • SQL Server Enterprise Manager (SSEM)

Question 26

Question
You need to execute two data flow operations in parallel after an Execute SQL Task has been completed. How can you achieve that? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • There is no way for two data flow operations to be executed in parallel in the same SSIS package.
  • You can place both data flows inside the same data flow task and create a prece- dence constraint leading from the preceding Execute SQL Task to the data flow task.
  • You can create two separate data flow tasks and create two precedence constraints leading from the preceding Execute SQL Task to each of the two data flow tasks.
  • You can create two separate data flow tasks, place them inside a third data flow task, and create a precedence constraint leading from the preceding Execute SQL Task to the third data flow task.

Question 27

Question
Which precedence constraint can you use to allow Task B to execute after Task A even if Task A has failed?
Answer
  • The failure precedence constraint, leading from Task A to Task B
  • The success precedence constraint, leading from Task A to Task B.
  • The completion precedence constraint, leading from Task A to Task B.
  • Use two precedence constraints—a success precedence constraint, and a failure precedence constraint, both leading from Task A to Task B

Question 28

Question
You need to extract data from delimited text files. What connection manager type would you choose?
Answer
  • A Flat File connection manager
  • An OLE DB connection manager
  • An ADO.NET connection manager
  • A File connection manager

Question 29

Question
Some of the data your company processes is sent in from partners via email. How would you configure an SMTP connection manager to extract files from email messages?
Answer
  • In the SMTP connection manager, configure the OperationMode setting to Send And Receive.
  • It is not possible to use the SMTP connection manager in this way, because it can only be used by SSIS to send email messages.
  • The SMTP connection manager supports sending and receiving email messages by default, so no additional configuration is necessary.
  • It is not possible to use the SMTP connection manager for this; use the IMAP (In- ternet Message Access Protocol) connection manager instead.

Question 30

Question
You need to extract data from a table in a SQL Server 2012 database. What connection manager types can you use? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • An ODBC connection manager
  • An OLE DB connection manager
  • A File connection manager
  • An ADO.NET connection manager

Question 31

Question
In your SSIS solution, you need to load a large set of rows into the database as quickly as possible. The rows are stored in a delimited text file, and only one source column needs its data type converted from String (used by the source column) to Decimal (used by the destination column). What control flow task would be most suitable for this operation?
Answer
  • The File System task would be perfect in this case, because it can read data from files and can be configured to handle data type conversions.
  • The Bulk Insert task would be the most appropriate, because it is the quickest and can handle data type conversions.
  • The data flow task would have to be used, because the data needs to be trans- formed before it can be loaded into the table.
  • No single control flow task can be used for this operation, because the data needs to be extracted from the source file, transformed, and then loaded into the desti- nation table. At least three different tasks would have to be used—the Bulk Insert task to load the data into a staging database, a Data Conversion task to convert the data appropriately, and finally, an Execute SQL task to merge the transformed data with existing destination data.

Question 32

Question
A part of your data consolidation process involves extracting data from Excel work- books. Occasionally, the data contains errors that cannot be corrected automatically. How can you handle this problem by using SSIS?
Answer
  • Redirect the failed data flow task to an External Process task, open the problematic Excel file in Excel, and prompt the user to correct the file before continuing the data consolidation process.
  • Redirect the failed data flow task to a File System task that moves the erroneous file to a dedicated location where an information worker can correct it later.
  • If the error cannot be corrected automatically, there is no way for SSIS to continue with the automated data consolidation process.
  • None of the answers above are correct. Due to Excel’s strict data validation rules, an Excel file cannot ever contain erroneous data.

Question 33

Question
In your ETL process, a few values need to be retrieved from a database at run time, based on another value available at run time, and they cannot be retrieved as part of any data flow task. Which task can you use in this case?
Answer
  • The Execute T-SQL Statement task
  • The Execute SQL task
  • The Expression task
  • The Execute Process task

Question 34

Question
How is the order of execution, or the sequence of operations, defined in an SSIS package?
Answer
  • The SSIS run time engine determines the order of execution automatically, based on the type of operations, the available software and hardware resources, and the size of data.
  • The sequence is defined by using precedence constraints.
  • The sequence is defined by using the Sequence container.
  • The sequence is defined at design time by using precedence constraints and Sequence containers, but at run time the SSIS engine executes the operations in the order set by the most appropriate execution plan for maximum performance.

Question 35

Question
How does the Failure constraint affect the execution order?
Answer
  • The following task will only execute after the preceding task has failed.
  • The following task will only execute if the preceding task has not failed.
  • The following task will never execute, because this constraint is only used at design time.
  • The following task will execute regardless of whether the preceding task has failed, but an error will be written to the SSIS log.

Question 36

Question
In your ETL process, there are three external processes that need to be executed in sequence, but you do not want to stop execution if any of them fails. Can this be achieved by using precedence constraints? If so, which precedence constraints can be used?
Answer
  • No, this cannot be achieved just by using precedence constraints.
  • Yes, this can be achieved by using completion precedence constraints between the first and the second and between the second and the third Execute Process tasks, and by using a success precedence constraint between the third Execute Process task and the following task.
  • Yes, this can be achieved by using completion precedence constraints between the first and the second, between the second and the third, and between the third Execute Process task and the following task.
  • Yes, this can be achieved by using failure precedence constraints between the first and the second, and between the second and the third Execute Process tasks, and by using a completion precedence constraint between the third Execute Process task and the following task.

  • 2
  • 3

Question 45

Question

  • You cannot incrementally update the cache while the package is running.
  • The Cache connection manager can be set on a project level.
  • You can do lookups against other (non OLE-DB) sources.

Question 46

Question
In your SSIS package you need to retrieve a scalar value from a table in the destina- tion database, to be used by multiple tasks. What is the most appropriate method to achieve this?
Answer
  • Embed a subquery in every existing query used by the package, so that the database engine can prepare the most appropriate execution plan to retrieve it at run time
  • Create a variable and use an expression to retrieve the value from the database once, and then use it throughout the execution.
  • Create a variable and use the Execute SQL task to retrieve the value once, and then use it throughout the execution.
  • Create a variable and use the Expression task to retrieve the value from the data- base as many times as needed.

Question 47

Question
In your SSIS package, you created a package-scoped variable to hold a value that you want to reuse throughout the package. Later you discover that this value must be set differently in one container, but the original variable should not be affected. What can you do?
Answer
  • Create a new package-scoped variable with a different name and reconfigure the tasks accordingly, to either use the new variable or the original one
  • Create a new container-scoped variable with a different name and reconfigure only the tasks that it contains to use the new variable.
  • Create a new container-scoped variable with the same name, and leave the tasks unchanged.
  • Use a package-scoped parameter, because this problem cannot be solved by using variables.

Question 48

Question
In your SSIS process, a specific property will be determined by the administrator in the production environment. The value supplied by the administrator will be used in mul- tiple properties and will have to be overridden automatically if certain conditions are met at run time. What is the most appropriate method to achieve this in SSIS?
Answer
  • Create a parameter and use expressions to assign its value to the corresponding properties, but use an expression at the beginning of the execution to change the parameter value if needed.
  • Create a parameter, use an expression at the beginning of the execution to either assign its value to a variable or override the value if needed, and use expressions to assign the value of the variable to the properties.
  • Create a read/write variable, use expressions to assign its value to the appropriate properties, and assign the correct value to the variable via property paths at run time.
  • Create a parameter and use expressions to either assign its value to the property or override it if needed.

Question 49

Question
In your SSIS package, there are several data flow tasks, each importing data into the destination database. You need to log the number of rows that have been inserted or updated in each data flow. What options provided by SSIS can you use to accomplish this? (Choose all that apply.)
Answer
  • You can use the Row Count task to count the rows passed through a data flow.
  • You can use the Row Count component to count the rows passed through a data flow.
  • You can store the values in variables before saving them to the log.
  • You can use an expression to calculate the total number of processed rows.

Question 50

Question
In your SSIS package, you need to set the properties of several tasks based on the in- formation available about the run time environment. Each of the properties you need to compute can be calculated by using a mathematical expression. What would be the most appropriate method?
Answer
  • Use the Expression Builder to build and test the expression, and then copy it to all of the corresponding task definitions.
  • Place an Expression Task into the control flow, preceding each task whose proper- ties need to be determined dynamically
  • Use as many Expression tasks as necessary to compute as many variables as there are different calculations, and then use the variables to assign the values to the corresponding tasks.
  • Use a single Expression task and store all required computed values in a row set (Object) variable to be used in property expressions to configure the correspond- ing tasks.

Question 51

Question
In the control flow of your SSIS package, you need to add a data maintenance task that will rebuild the indexes of your dimension tables after they have been populated suc- cessfully. You have implemented each dimension table load in an individual data flow. The Execute SQL task containing the index rebuild script must be executed after the preceding data flow has completed successfully, but only on Saturdays. The name of the current day is stored in a variable. Is it possible to achieve this in SSIS control flow? If so, how?
Answer
  • No, this is not possible in the control flow because the conditional split transforma- tion is only available in a data flow.
  • Yes, it is possible to achieve this in the control flow, but only by using a Script task.
  • Yes, this can be achieved by using a success precedence constraint leading from the data flow task to the Execute SQL task, with a precedence constraint expression checking whether the value of the variable is Saturday.
  • Yes, this can be achieved by using a regular success precedence constraint leading from the data flow task to the Execute SQL task.
