Beginning SQL Server 2000 DBA: From Novice to Professional (Book)

May 2004

T. Bain—a well-established author of SQL Server texts — has focused his book "Beginning SQL Server 2000 DBA: From Novice to Professional," on the database administrator as the ideal reader, with the self-professed aim of taking such a reader from novice level to professional competence. To that end, he tries to make the book as relevant to a database administrator as he can, starting from quite a useful introduction on "being a DBA." After reading the book, one might feel that they didn't know the total insides of SQL Server at the code level—by its very nature there's less emphasis on development. With that in mind, it's probably best to buy this book in conjunction with a text offering a more development-oriented view, just for completeness.
