Nice idea to write such a book!

I would have appreciated if you hadn't written everything in bold letters and instead had given a compressed overview about the content, as well as a link to amazon (Edit: OK, found it in the price).

And a free view into parts of the book to enable us to see how easy it is to read the book.

Wish you all the best and many sold books!

Jens-Peter

Edit: On amazon I couldn't have a look into the table of content :-(

@BrainDonor: Good of you to mention that, thanx.
But hopefully the book's a bit more. At least he wrote about some exercises in the book!

Not sure if I am imagining things, but that was not a book review! It read like an advertisement. Am I missing something?

This book is a great idea.

I've ordered it today and will review it in about 2 weeks.

It would have been nice to have had the description and the book review at the same time. This is just an advertisement without the review. I agree with previous posts that a sample chapter or an example of one of the exercises would be a good addition.

Book Review
Fundamentals of SQL SERVER 2012
Sebastian Meine, Ph.D.

This book was a pleasure to read.

Sebastian offers a breezy introduction to SQL Server 2012 replication that touches on all the main points. And it was well edited - you won't stumble across any typos or grammar errors (nice). He carefully explains subtleties, like security, without overwhelming the reader with a lot of jargon.

After providing an overview of replication in general (publisher, distributor, subscriber, push vs. pull, replication agents etc.) the book handles transactional replication in detail before examining merge replication and the differences between the two.

Exercises are everywhere, so you can build his replications on your own servers while reading the book.

This book has chapters devoted to the distributor, publication access list, SQL Server Agent jobs, conflict resolution for merges, and replication monitor. These are important subjects in their own right, and he has emphasized that importance by these sections.

But an additional chapter on using the more limited SQL Server Express would be welcomed.

Sebastian concludes with a section on troubleshooting, which is really important since replication errors can be difficult to interpret.

Who should buy this book?

Anyone who knows SQL Server basics (but wants to replicate) would be well-served by reading this book before digging into BOL.
