SQL SERVER – Download Free eBook – Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Database Administration and Business Intelligence is indeed very key area of the SQL Server. My very good friend Ross Mistry and Stacia Misner has recently wrote book which is for SQL Server 2012. The best part of the book is it is totally FREE!

Well, this book assumes that you have certain level of SQL Server Administration as well Business Intelligence understanding. So if you are absolutely beginner I suggest you read other books of Ross as well attend Pluralsight course of Stacia Misner.

  1. Pinal, thanks for the information, I am interested to know Pinal when there is a new sql server version release, do you learn by reading books, or do you go to a class. I used to be able to go to class, but now because of the budget, my company won’t give us opportunity to have class.
