3.0 out of 5 stars Mind Numbingly boring, 1 Feb 2010
Ive heard so many people say this is awesome, so who am i to argue? Im sure it is, but it just is'nt for me.
Its hours of stretches, drills, stretches, drills, runs etc just to build up speed.

It doesnt help with musical knowledge, it doesnt help train your ear, it doesnt help you with your style, it just teaches you to be fast.

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services by Brian Larson

In Chapter 1 of the 70-432 Sql Server 2008 implementation and maintenance, it lists out the basic features of "all" versions of sql server, but it leaves out Enterprise.

For all editions, it says that multiple instances are not allowed, yet when i check on the sqlserver site it tells me all editions support up to 16 instances except the enterprise version, which supports 50 instances.

Such simple facts wrong so early in the book. is this a sign of the quality of the rest of the book? has anyone else used this book yet? Im thinking of just sending it back if its that inaccurate.
