Worst Microsoft Training Kit I've ever used.,
This review is from: Training Kit (Exam 70-463): Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (Paperback)
First of all I struggle to understand how anyone can give this five stars and as such I question their motives for doing so.
I've been taking Microsoft exams for nearly 20 years and have recently passed 70-461 and 70-462, so I believe I am qualified to review this training kit.
As such I would reiterate a number of observations made by Mr. Sinkinson.
Quite simply this is the worst training kit I've ever used as it's littered with mistakes and errors, it would be simply impossible to follow the exercises without using the published errata on the O'reilly web-site. I cannot believe that anyone has proof read this book.
At times my progression has felt like wading through treacle as I have attempted to diagnose and correct each error.
Like most SQL DBA's you are probably forced into learning DW simply to maintain your SQL certification, so if you can find an alternative method of learning this product I suggest that you undertake it.
