I want to curate some of the best SQL Server online tutorials as part of my skill inventory. I'm particularly looking for good tutorials on SSIS, SSAS and SSRS, and I may add other topics to this list. I prefer written tutorials, but I will consider videos and presentations. If it worked for you, I'm interested in hearing about it. Thanks in advance.

(For the record, I am well experienced in SQL Server but am currently unemployed and shoring up my skills as I look for my next gig.)

Take a look at the stairways, each one focuses on a topic like SSIS, SSRS, SSAS etc.

Hello there,

The best practice to learn MSSQL is to practice on test machine while reading. Only reading will enhance your theory knowledge but as DBA you must be practical. As you said you are experienced, you must be cleared with the Basic MS SQL funda. According to my experience of learning of MS SQL I will prefer to read Stairways. the most important part as DBA is to manage logs and backup, so I will prefer you to read Transaction log management in Stairways.

However, just for interveiw purpose I will prefer to go with Pinal Dave's SQL interview Q and A.
