Excellent Starting Point,

This review is from: Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Step by Step (Paperback)
I'm currently refreshing my SQL Server Skills which I've not used for about 10 years now. Things have moved on quite a bit since SQL Server 2000. I'm about half way through this book and it's providing a very useful overview of the current SQL Server environment (e.g using the Object Explorer, Management Studio, Query writer etc)
This book will not by itself get you through the exams but a very useful intro prior to moving onto the official microsoft training kits.
Recommended for absolute beginners and as a refresher.
