Now it is the time to give it a 5 stars. This book goes hand to hand with another book written by Stanek -- "Windows Server 2003 Administrator's Pocket Consultant".
I don't understand why people give him 2 stars because "Encryption" is not mentioned. He briefly mentioned "Encryption" but didn't write detail information about it(See Page 335 on your SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant).
This book will save you from time to time if you are an admin! Highly recommanded!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beginners please read something else first before you jump on this one.
This covers most areas well except:
1)Security, user, and schema administration. This book's coverage is very scanty.
2)Replication: very basic coverage at best and it will not help you understand SQL 2005 replication very much.
3)Data Mirroring: this part is OK, except it doesn't cover it in details as it needs to.
4)Log shipping: Maybe half a page dedicated to it.
5)Clustering: no coverage whatsoever.
6)T-SQL: almost no coverage except for administrative matters ("alter database/table" etc).
7)Performance tuning: almost none.
The book is designed for both new and experienced professionals. Someone who has never used SQL Server before and will get as much out of it as someone who's been using it for a long while. Unlike some books, he doesn't talk down to you and respects the fact that you can learn things if shown how to use them.
This book doesn't just cover SQL Server, but also covers SQL itself. In fact, I really don't consider this just a SQL Server manual. It's really a SQL Server/SQL Command Guide, covering pretty much every aspect of daily administration, configuration, and tuning of SQL Server through the GUI and commands.
The index and table of contents is well organized so you can focus on the sections you want to learn more about.
The ideal book for anyone who works with or wants to work with SQL Server whether admin or not.
