The book says in the Intro and Skills Needed sections that you can get the most current installation steps from the Joes2Pros web site, and also says the site has a link to make the purchase of SQL Server, but neither of these things is true, as far as I could see. (You CAN download the SQL scripts... the links are next to the Book details on the site. ) In fact, the site still shows details of how to install SQL Server 2012 and does not mention at all that Microsoft is no longer offering it.
The site seems totally geared to getting you to sign up and pay for online lessons. I emailed support for the site to ask if the scripts would still work with SQL Server 2014, (seems like a reasonable question) and after 1 week the request still has a status of "waiting to be assigned to an agent".
I am going to plow on and purchase SQL Server 2014, and I assume that the scripts will work, but this isn't good enough. You need website back-up for a book like this, and this is lacking, therefore I cannot recommend this book.
Then I find Joes2Pros, which for under £25 (kindle editions) does exactly what the website claims. If anyone reading this has ever learned a language using Rosetta Stone and marvelled at the way the totally different approach actually enables you to learn what on many previous attempts in other ways had seemed impossible, then I compare Joes2Pros to that.
Amazing stuff, this guy has succeeded where every other training source has failed. I think that is as simple as the fact that he remembers being a novice AND can put himself back in that place to write this training series - all the others either don't even try or just fail miserably.
I recommend this book to any one who wants to learn sql.
