Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first brought the Microsoft book, which contained insufficient practice questions and was far too heavy on .NET development for what was supposed to be a SQL Server exam.

However, this book is much better and focusses on what you need to pass, rather than waving the flag for Microsoft. If anything it contains too much information and as such could serve as a general reference book for SQL Server data access as well as an exam study guide.

If you read the book and work through the exercises you should pass.

This book is good if you are not current on MS SQL Server but it is really out of date since SQL Server 2012 is now out, This is four SQL Server versions behind but it is good for those who are not current themselves.
