SQL SERVER 2008 COMPREHENSIVE REFRESHER BY PINAL DAVE
In the overwhelming quest to become a knowledgeable SQL Server DBA, you may feel that there is so much to learn that you are collecting knowledge at breakneck speed in a jumbled fashion. I have experienced that, and have also had the sense that I am still lacking much in fundamental areas. In times like those, it’s nice to find solace in a structured overview of the essentials. I’d like to point anyone interested to Pinal Dave’s SQLAuthority.com blog, and specifically to his series of SQL Server 2008 Interview Questions and Answers posts here. In a clear and systematic style, he runs through a comprehensive list of key SQL Server fundamentals that will add to your aggregation of SQL Server smarts. Hopefully, much of it will be a refresher, or, if you are a beginner, set you on course to obtain a solid foundation. Enjoy!
