3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, Oct. 15 2006
By

This review is from: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services Step by Step (Paperback)
For a step-by-step, usage guidance on Analysis Services toolset of SQL Server 2005, the authors have done a good job. Screen shots, which usually make a computer book looks thick, were inserted at the right spots. For a Microsoft Press book, it should earn a proof-reading commendation for having less than 5 typos. The companion CD provides you with a sample data warehouse (DW) used throughout the book.

The lack of detailed discussion on building a DW, coupled with the omission of data mining topic create a sense of unfulfilling for a reader in search of a business intelligence solution. But then again, this is just a step-by-step book.

This review is from: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services Step by Step (Paperback)
This book could have been done better. The book is full of typos and ommisions, a lot of times the writers are listing steps that are not possible as asked for hence you spend hours trying to figure it out. I would tell the learners that this is book is not the easiest complete learning guide to BI and SQL server 2005 Analysis services.
