Leave it to you guys and Pinal Dave to actually make this topic entertaining and interesting!!! This is the best class I’ve had for ANY IT topic. The content is 100% real world as it says. Stuff you don’t learn in school and stuff you don’t learn with years of experience sometimes either! Great job Pinal!

As they say the proof is in the pudding. Using techniques and queries from this class I was able to increase performance 3 fold, decrease the database size 2 fold. The primary lesson learned was throw out everything you thought you knew about indexing, (start from scratch..delete all your existing indexes..ugh) and most pointedly forget anything about index profiling you “learned” from Microsoft. These are paramount concepts in database indexing and are a must for every DBA or software developer.

Do yourself a favor and take this course :). It’s an amazing course and you’ll learn from the best. Thank you Pinal & Brent.

This was a great class and I believe that Pinal did a great job keeping the class interesting and on track. He encouraged student participation and that helped with the learning process. I thought I knew exactly how indexes use was determined but learned a huge gotcha at the end of the class.

This was a great class. Very informative and the pace was perfect. Pinal and Brent compliment each other so well with their completely different styles and humor. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in the topic of indexing and query performance.
