Top Customer Reviews
I have written an in-depth review of this book on i-programmer DOT info, the first part of this review follows:
Interviews are the main method used to show your understanding of SQL Server. This book contains commonly asked interview questions together with their answers. Will it help you get a job?
Many of us attend interviews in the hope of getting a job. So potentially this book could prove very helpful in getting you that job, by both identifying the common SQL Server questions asked, and giving you the answers to those questions. I work freelance, having had 13 contracts over the last 18 years, I also regularly interview candidates for SQL Server related roles, so hopefully I'm qualified to say how relevant the questions and answers are.
The book is divided into the following chapters:
*Database concepts with SQL Server
*Common generic questions & answers
*Common developer questions
*Common tricky questions
*Miscellaneous questions on SQL Server 2008
*DBA skills related questions
*Data warehousing interview questions & answers
*General best practices
You can see from the chapter headings the book should be suitable for SQL Server developers, DBAs, and data warehouse specialists...
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Although the name contains the word "Interview", this book is much more than just an interview questions guide. As you start reading the book, what you realize immediately is that this small package covers almost everything under the SQL Server umbrella, and caters to multiple audiences of multiple proficiency levels. The book is a ready-reckoner for every SQL Server developer & administrator. When reading the book, I found myself thinking about a concept that I hadn't touched in a while, or which I was not sure about. In such cases, I went over to the reference links at the end of such questions that are available where one can go to for additional information.
With real world questions and practical answers, this is one book you simply cannot afford to miss. Gift yourself a copy today.

Does not go deep into the answers for some tricky questions. Ideal for 1st or 2nd interview for any aspiring SQL Server DBA/Developer. I mostly gift this book to my students.
Personally, i liked the Tricky question section because it made me think about the topic at hand. And i believe, this exercise of thinking on my feet after reading the question will help me tackle questions during interviews that require quick thinking. And for questions which i knew, i learned the perfect way of answering them.
And every chapter, ends with a summary (called points to ponder) which is an excellent place to reflect upon and test one's knowledge. And even if you are not planning to go for interview's in near future - this book is a handy reference for all FAQ's you may have on a day-to-day basis.
Perfect for any who is a SQL server Database Developer or a SQL server DBA or planning to be one!
The author gave most of the content for free on his blog site but it is so good and I still bought the whole book. I am very satisfied.
Very high quality book.
