Microsoft SQL Server 2000 DBA Survival Guide is organized into several parts that comprise the various jobs and tasks the DBA performs. Each chapter is presented with the goal of providing knowledge and "know-how" to Database Administrators of a SQL Server database. The chapters also offer real-world insight and experience by passing on tips, tricks, and suggestions based on what the authors have learned the hard way. The book also takes time to provide checklists and examples for various SQL Server DBA tasks. The book also provides insight into the tasks that make-up a DBA's job including discussions of topics such as the creation of naming standards and conventions which are essential for efficient administration.

Top Customer Reviews
The main problem is the size of the subject, to try and cover everything in one book is brave and while I feel they make a fair job of it, you will need some additional digging to fill in all the details.
It is a very good starting point but needs to be supplemented with more detailed texts (books online for example).
So, if you find something that does not supported by your practical experience, very likely you and not the authors are right.
One of the few books of its kind you can actually read cover to cover and enjoy for the quality of writing as well as the good information.
Highly suggested for THE book to take you from 6.5 to 7.0
Thank you, Mark!
