    I'd start with BOL (it's free) and if you really MUST purchase a book, Inside SQL Server (good for SQL Server internals). The Administrator's Pocket Reference is little more than BOL in a printed format. The only time I find the Sam's "learn this in this many days" books helpful is when I have NO experience with a product and I need to get familiar with very BASIC functionality quickly. I doubt they will help you with your certification quest.

    Hi all,<br /><br />as i have said in my previous responses to simillar kind of questions, please do have a look at EXAM GUIDE first, then you start looking for BOOKS, as SQL ADMIN is a topics where you can find lots of BOOKS, but you need to know what topic exactly you must prepare for the EXAM, so i suggest first<a target="_blank" href=http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcdba/requirements.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcdba/requirements.asp</a> for MCDBA certification<br />or<a target="_blank" href=http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-228.asp>http://www.microsoft.com/learning/exams/70-228.asp</a> for the ADMIN exam only<br /><br />Good Luck[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br />AKTHAR DILMOHAMUD<br />65 BENARES ST<br />PORT LOUIS<br />MAURITIUS
