Top Customer Reviews
Having said that, you will no doubt find some fascinating nuggets of information within this. One of the biggest surprises I had was what I learnt from a very short article on the 'FROM' clause - something I thought was fairly basic and well understood by myself.
There are five divisions within the book:
Database Design and Architecture
Performance Tuning and Optimisation
Most articles just provide a taster and further research is then needed to go into details. As an example, I found the articles on partitioning somewhat lacking, but there is enough information to know how to look further.
Some articles also cover interfacing with other languages - C##, VB.Net, LINQ and suchlike, and others aren't technical articles at all - 'What does it mean to be a DBA', for example.
When you receive the book there is an insert at the start that enables you to get a pdf file of this book too, a very nice addition for those with various e-books and electronic media.
Altogether an interesting book and recommended.
Every day a schoolday? Well this book every day seems like doing a degree all over again every day.
Personally I thought I knew SQL server very well, just shows it's never too late to learn. A brilliantly written book, the subject matters are clear and well covered even the topics which at first appeared of little interest to me took on a whole new feeling and I got something from every chapter.
Worth every penny a must have in the DBA's armoury.
