1.0 out of 5 stars Uninspiring, 22 Jan. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Training Kit (Exam 70-462): Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases (Paperback)
This book is littered with both typographical and factual errors which means that you need to keep referring to the online errata. The book is not a complete treatment of the subject - there are many 'More Info' boxes with links to Microsoft web sites to learn further information required to pass the exam. Many of these links are incorrect and many of the hyperlinks in the PDF version of the book (on the CD) are broken due to formatting, e.g. when a link spans more than one line. The style is dry and poorly worded in many instances e.g. "You can also start an instance that has been shut down by SQL Server Audit in Single User mode." which gets in the way of understanding the subject matter.

All in all, it's taking a while for me to plough through the book and I am not confident that when I get to the end, I will have the knowledge to pass the exam.

Time for plan B...
