Reader's Thoughts


Supplied by my work in order to get me certified. This book has a lot of real world examples and guides you step by step through processes needed to administer SQL Server. I also learned the SQL language from this. I recommend this to anyone who is going to be spending a lot of time using SQL Server, as it gives you the fundamental knowledge required to efficiently manage it. p.s. I read this book prior to taking a database management systems class at college. Because of my knowledge I had a pretty easy time in this class and was the only class i've gotten an A in
