Free SQL Books

I was looking for a way to put BOL on my Kindle when I found a few good links I thought I would share. FYI If anyone knows how to put BOL on an Android device it would be great!

Here is a link to large list of Microsoft books including almost 30 SQL Server books all available for free download in several different formats. I’ve added it to my “Study and Reference Materials” page under the Books section. There are a number of excerpts from BOL and from what I’ve seen they look pretty good!

Here is a Microsoft Connect link to request that requests that SQL Server BOL be set up as PDF files. It was originally requested by Bluedog67. It sounded like a great idea to me so I up voted it.

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.
