Excellent book that puts it all together

I had been trying to extract information from our workplace databases for several years, and it was a frustrating experience. This book put it all together for me, and I finally understand the complexities. I had tried to learn from many other books, but their focus was on point and click, creating databases, maintaining databases, and creating forms. SQL Queries for Mere Mortals focuses exclusively on what I need to accomplish -- extracting information from existing databases. I use it as a reference often. Now, I can obtain answers to complex questions with a single SQL statement, instead of numerous queries of queries of queries.

Not Sufficient

This book gives you alot of facts to remember and no examples to use. The test was all configuration and security scenario questions and alot of stuff in the book was hardly covered like backup and recovery, DTS, BCP, DBCC statements, replication, maybe one question each on these. No questions at all on steps to take during installation and configuration. I will be looking for something to supplement this with..

How did I manage this before?

This is the best VBScript I have ever read. Explanations when appropriate, examples where needed, and a virtually complete reference section, formatted exactly as a reference book should be - command, syntax, parameters, returns and examples. Easy to find exactly what you are looking for. This book has save me a considerable amount of reference time, as well as giving me the info I needed when I needed it. My hat off the authors, this book is worth every penny I paid for it - and then some.
