Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Training Kit (Exam 70-462): Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases (Paperback)
Microsoft books in my experience technically seem to be either very good, or just miss important technical details.
This one falls in the second category, only on chapter 2 (so it might improve) setting up the machines, misses out necessary technical details. As part of an exercise asks to install .net framework from command line, text gives you the commands. WHICH DO NOT WORK ! Goggled it still no further forward. if things improve will edit this review.
Then there is the writing style......zzzzzzzz sorry feel asleep thinking about it. Technical manuals do not have to this boring. Head first are an example of technical manuals that you do not have force yourself to concentrate.
Anyway positive, the exam prep questions included in the last training kit where very good, even better that they where free so heres hoping this one is as good. Electronic book , excellent, might even find myself dipping in and out of this later.
