This is a real winner, and I very much look forward to all the other volumes in the series.
Your approach to training has been by far the easiest I've found, plus your instructions actually work unlike other books! I've tried other books that are supposed to be for beginners and they either leave out crucial steps or their sample code and instructions fail to execute.
I also love the fact that a you can read the book, view videos and then do labs or you can switch it up. This training caters to all learning styles! Bravo!
If you're a beginner (like me) or just feel the need to brush up on your skills, I highly recommend Joes 2 Pros.
I took advantage of the awesome special to get the Kindle edition for $5.99! What an excellent option to have available for those of use who are on the move. Now I can always have my book with me on my Kindle for iPhone app and study when it's convenient. The digital edition is well done and displays perfect, even on the smaller iPhone display. If an image appears, just double-tap it and it zooms in so you can easily see it!
I'm growing more and more fond of this product and can't wait to continue my studies! Grab the Kindle editions when you have a chance because I really don't think you'll be disappointed. My next goal is to figure out how to attend the classes in Washington because I bet it would be just as great.
Important knowledge is presented in a succinct but very illuminating fashion. The labs/exercises help to solidify the new knowledge. I also have the accompanying DVD (sold separately, but worth it if you are a visual learner) to this book, and it marries up nicely with the book. On the whole, just seeing the birds eye view of how SQL operates and how things fit together will be a good platform for launching into more advanced topics, or diving deeper into topics already covered.
I am a one-man IT department, but to date have very little knowledge of SQL and SQL Server (not my responsibility, but I am quite interested, thus my purchase of this book!). I have been fairly intimidated about learning SQL Server, especially about where to begin and where to turn for reliable and helpful beginner's information (since there are so many options out there!). I am glad I selected this series. I have a good feeling Mr. Morelan's resources will save me a lot of time ... and money ... as I continue forward with his series! Well done to the authors!
If you go to [...] and check out his videos. wow what a treat.
It is nice to have a guy who really wants you to master SQL. I mean the text size and screenshots are big enough for you to follow along and practice the labs.
I mean and the way he has it logically formatted to help you learn. I am buying his entire set on SQL. As a network engieer or admin, these books are a must. And so many so called experts create a so called academic version with too much fluff and not enought Puff! Rick Morelan's books on SQL give lots of Puff without too much Fluff! fantastic book...hit the ground running kind of book. yeah!
