Only downside is that there are no answers to the exercises with the book (which is understandable since it is a text/training book) I have contacted the company to get the answers and will await their answer. That is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star(I will gladly change my rating if I receive the answers)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This book really saves me time and effort. This format of this book is like a technical how-to manual or cook book. I extremely love this kind of format because I can quickly refer to a particular issue. The topic is usually concise and easy to understand.
This book is for developers not DBAs. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn SQL Server 2008. Of course, basic programming skills are the pre-requisites. In addition, it is very useful as an excellent technical reference book for more experienced programmers.
I also recommend that you stop and do the exercises at the end of each major chapter -- they are worth spending the time on. They are well thought out and you may very well pick something up even in those areas where you may "think you know it" (I know I did).
Finally, the layout of the book and a detailed index means that this will be a valuable reference in the future -- I still don't aim to be a SQL guru, but I know that with what I learned and this book as a reference I will be much more capable than before.
