I would definitely recommend spending the $49.00 on a Developer version of SQL Server 2008 R2 also. The Express version is free, but it does not support all of the features the books cover, like partitioning tables (in Book Three). With the Express version, when you run the setup scripts for the Partitioning Tables section, you will get an error that says something like "Only the Enterprise version of SQL Server supports Table Partitioning." With the Developer version, it will run with no errors.
UPDATE 6/27/12: I passed the MCTS test thanks in large part to this series, so I wholeheartedly recommend them. But also, review the syllabus listed online for this exam as some aspects are not covered by the books. But they will get you 90% of the way there.
The books are an easy read. You can tell from the very first chapter that you read that you have a better understanding of the subject matter. This book clearly states the facts in language you can cleary understand. The pictures are a great help in understanding what you are looking at and will accomplish. It explains all of the bars, fields and details that you see on the screen and their function. You get a full understanding of what each component does while you are following along with the steps and learning not only how to write SQL and create databases but you are getting a full instruction on the software package itself. This is the greatest guide to learning a software package while training you on how to become a DBA. If you absorb half of the information in this 5 volume set, you will be ahead of the game ! Thanks Rick !!
