Just google "top SQL books", you'll find plenty. No one can tell you which one is the best for you. You'll have to decide youself. You could alway get another one if the current one isn't clear enough for you. :-)

You could also work you way through this list:http://www.katieandemil.com/katie-and-emil-tutorial-to-70-461-querying-microsoft-sql-server-2012

And you can download SQL 2012 (Evaluation or Express) here:
http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/get-sql-server/try-it.aspx

I'm working my way through this aswell.

Goodluck!!

Personally I like Joes 2 Pros. Their books are for the development path rather than the administrative one but still quite good.

A DBA position is usually the last technical position of a much larger IT career.

Certifications are good in two senses, #1 You get to learn the general topics you are supposed to master, don't expect the certification per-se to do that for you and, #2 You show to prospective employers that you are serious enough to inverst time and treasure on it. Also, when hiring for an entry level position certifications might be the tie breaker that puts your resume on top.

Practice, build your own home lab, get a job as a sql developer, show interest, ask for dba related responsibilities.

Hope this helps.

Yup, because companies often won't hire DBAs with 0 experience (and those that do may well be companies you don't want to work for). They'll hire devs with 0 experience though.

Basically, yes. As a DBA you have the keys to the kingdom. With no experience they most likely won't give them to you. The only way I see getting a Jr DBA position with no experience would be a large corporation with a large DBA staff willing to train a newbie.

Cool

Fortunately there is a fair amount of crossover knowledge and experience between SQL development and administration. How much cross over depends on a combination of factors. The job: smaller shops will ask you to do a larger variety of tasks but there is tends to be less variety of work in general, and larger shops tend to have a wider variety of work in general and may be willing to give you some of the easier tasks as training. And you: how enthusiastic are you about learning, do you volunteer for the lower end tasks that will help you to build and broaden your experience etc. I was a developer for a number of years (more than 10) before switching over administration and was able to step in immediately as a mid to senior level administrator.
