Software for Data Analysis:
Paperback Verified Purchase. There is much to learn here. If you are already intimately familiar with previous versions of MS SQL , then the value of this book will be limited. There simply isn't enough advanced information. But there is plenty of beginner to intermediate knowledge that would be very helpful, which I think is the target audience of this book. I particularly like the sample code in the text. Many topics are covered only superficially.
The SQL Server Bible is a very good book, and it goes far beyond any documentation or examples that Microsoft provides for its own product.
The book covers nearly every topic at some level, but that is sort of my one complaint with the book -- it never goes very deep with any topics. You'll find one or two examples for each of the concepts it covers, but that is about it -- it doesn't discuss, for example, the meaning of every parameter of a built-in stored procedure call.
Or the possible meaning of every option of every T-SQL command. For that we're still stuck to searching online and crossing our fingers that we'll find something.
I know that is partly the nature of the book, because it does try to cover everything, but if someone is looking for in-depth examples on specific topics, perhaps a more specialized book is a better choice. I found this book to be very thorough with all of it's examples and explanations. I did not however, like the fact that there were some proofing mistakes, e. The proofing errors bothered me quite a bit since have a degree in English.
If you can get past a few errors, this book will be highly valuable for you if you are looking at a job that relies heavily on SQL query performance tuning, custom reporting, T-SQL, etc. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It has come up short in some areas encryption with supplying complete information and examples. One person found this helpful. A handy book to have especially for fine tuning the server or tracking down an intemittent server crash. Book is excellent, a little bit of everything.
I have been using SQL server for years and this book has been helpful with learning the guts of SQL server to get even better performance out of it.
It doesn't just teach you how to design better database and queries, it explains why you get better performance. See all 13 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

Yet the writers have done just that, providing an authoritative resource that well earns the term Bible. Not only do they cover a wide range of topics, but they do so in a way that makes the information easy to understand and to apply, often breaking down complex information into simple concepts and instructions. Take, for example, the chapter on change tracking. Yet the book bills itself as being geared toward the intermediate user. For example, the book jumps into the topic of data types without explaining what a data type is, the assumption being that most readers have enough basic knowledge to understand such concepts.
Even so, most chapters offer enough information to give the beginner a foothold into the subject at hand, such as when the book describes how the database engine processes a T-SQL query. At the same time, the authors willingly provide more advanced information when the topic warrants a deeper understanding.
They model databases and fine-tune performance and write code and build reports and move data and, among them, do just about everything that database professionals do.
Together they have more years experience than SQL Server has been in existence. Certainly, this was no shabby lot who pulled together this book. In addition to providing accurate and precise information, the authors are not afraid to give advice or offer opinions. For example, SQL Server does not inherently support row-level security.
As the authors point out, you can use views to provide a hard-coded form of this service. However, such a solution can create a nightmare for anyone trying to develop or maintain a database of any significant size.
To address this situation, the book describes how to build a custom solution into the abstraction layer to provide the necessary security. There is, in fact, no shortage of useful information from beginning to end.
A good example of this is the chapter on installation. However, before the chapter gets into that information, it provides details about hardware and software requirements, various SQL Server editions, and different licensing plans. On top of all this, the authors provide good, solid information about command-line and PowerShell installations. Plus, the authors provide a careful account of the new features specific to SQL Server Many of the chapters also include small Best Practices callouts that address everything from performing bulk inserts to coding mathematical expressions to using the common language runtime CLR.
Of course, no single book can provide a complete picture of every facet of SQL Server, and the Bible is no exception. Complex features and concepts are often relegated to a single part or chapter in the book. Yet topics such as replication, backup and recovery, database modeling, and business intelligence often demand entire volumes. As a result, you might find yourself reaching for sources outside of the book to supplement the information.
The data architect, for example, would not want to rely on this book alone to learn about data modeling, the principles of relational databases, and the various normal forms.
But the database developer and administrator would have much to gain from this information, just as the data architect could learn a lot from this book about how SQL Server processes queries and uses indexes to improve performance. In addition, discussions of database design are covered in multiple chapters spread throughout the book.
The second of these chapters, which covers relational theory, is sandwiched between a chapter on query flow and a chapter on expressions and scalar functions.
In fact, the theory chapter includes a note pointing out how design concepts are dispersed throughout the book, which left me with the sense that organizational changes that were perhaps not completely thought out had been implemented at the last minute and this was their way to cover it up.
To do so would be to miss much of the value that the book offers. And in all fairness, pulling together the breadth of information that this book does is a remarkable feat in itself. If it can be said that the devil is in the details, then the Bible is full of the devil and would be a welcomed addition to the libraries of most SQL Server professionals.
It might not be the only SQL Server resource you end up with, but it could easily be the one you use the most.
