This is a book above my current experience level. That doesn't mean it isn't useful to me.
I'm starting chapter 3 of the book now. So far: I've learned new ways to install SQL Server. I have a better understanding of the importance of seperate drives for the data & logs. Most importantly I've learned the importance of DOCUMENTATION.
I've been able to compare what I got from Forta's T-SQL in 10 to the scripts provided in the book and follow them. Do you remember when SQL, or any form of programming, was new to you and how great you felt when you were able to read somebody's code and understand it? Yeah, that rocks.
I have liked being able to take the scripts from the book and run them against my install of SQL Server 2008 Express and see the results.
