The best book to learn OLAP for SQL SERVER 2000 and to get up to speed with the new OLAP feautures in SQL SERVER 2000.
Then I reached chapter two and couldn't believe what I saw. It was the same exact tutorial I had just done in SQL Server Analysis Services. Yes, when you install Analysis Services there is a tutorial section in the application. I had only completed the first tutorial section and then went to buy this book.
I can only imagine the rest of the chapters in the book are the remaining tutorials in the application. Even the description on the back of the book almost matches the titles in the application tutorial.
Of course, I won't waste my time checking, but I feel pretty confident the tutorial and the book are pretty identical. Just from flipping through that 2nd chapter I could see they used the same exact screen shots, the same instructions, etc.
I plan to return the book and just go through the remaining tutorials.
1. You are not going to learn more from this book than from the books on line included with sql server 2000.
2. The fact that the example of writing a cube from Excel didn't work makes me feel complete frustration. It was the reason why i bought this book.
However the book is not bad if you are new to olap technics. It is a good introduction.
It is written in easy english and full with screen shots that help you read it even if you are not in front of your machine.
