This has probably been discussed before but thought id create my own thread so i can inform you of my background.
I have been in software support for around 5 years now, its only software roll out, configuration, fault diagnosis, database queries (SQL), general user support....that kinda of thing, have been usign transact sql for those 5 years, not done too much with it other that T-SQL, quering data, bulding queries for customers, find problems with data.
I really want to expand my knowledge of SQL and would like to become a DBA.
I have no idea where to start, obviously i have a good understanding of how sql works so im not a total begginer but i need to know where to start learning more.
So i guess i just want some direction as to what books i can start with? Though about the microsoft training kit books for SQL 2012 but then i thought that would only cover things i need to get the cert rather than getting the full comprehensive knowledge on the subject, please help!!
