I wrote about Programming SQL Server 2012 book before few months. But that book was not for beginners, it was little bit advance and not easy to catch the things from scratch. But Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012 book is a good book for a beginner.
I was waiting for this book’s release. Because I wanted to know the things that covers the 70-461 exam. Authors covers important points and highlight them. This kit also consist of training resources such as questions. It helps you to face the exam with out any fear.
Every lesson comes with a new thing to me. And organization of this book is perfect. This book covers all the fundamentals in T-SQL. For novice DevDBA’s this would be the best book to know the capabilities of T-SQL. This book also covers new features best practices as well as bad practices.
Exam 70-461 is essential exam if you are looking for Microsoft SQL Server New Certifications. This book will definitely help you to pass this exam. And this covers standard methods of coding in SQL and TSQL both. In first chapter Authors discuss about Relational Theories very well. And they point out the misconceptions about relational database management system.
I call it complete Kit of learning TSQL. But this book is not for experienced DBAs or Developers. You can buy this book from here.
