(Creating a new thread so I can inform about my background)
Hello,
I am Sagar. I have a Bachelors in computers science completed in 2007. after that I worked 4 years in Cerner working as a software engineer writing C++ code and database queries in Cerner Command Language, aka CCL (which is a wrapper for Oracle Database) to fetch data/improve performance for the front end of the application. I quit job in 2011 and right now i am doing my Masters in Computers Science at Texas Tech University about to graduate in August 2013. I have a student job on campus creating ASP.net web applications and the necessary databases required for them in SQL Server 2008.
After I graduate I do not want to go back into software development jobs but rather going back into a SQL Server related job and possibly a DBA afterwards.
Could you guide me on how I start going about starting a career in this field. I am considering getting certifications. Would my experience in the previous job in Cerner and the student jobs count as experience when I am applying for jobs. I think I am honest when I say I have intermediate - advanced skills in SQL Queries and T-SQL. What kind of reading materials would you recommend for me?

Thank you for your time,
Sagar.

read boks .online materials.
Join sql server forums like sql server central. read people's real time problem and their corresponding solutions. set the practical lab at your home or wherever and start testing the sql codes.
