This is an excellent resource for Oracle DBAs who have to manage SQL Server databases. The author understands an Oracle DBA's perspective of looking at the database and has explained the how-to for SS DB from that perspective. Understanding the architecture of a new database can be daunting, esp. if you are an Oracle DBA and know the importance of understanding the architecture. I have not found many books which do a good job at it.
The book is complete in the topics and can get an Oracle DBA or anyone who wants to manage a SS Database, to get to the job with the help of the understanding that is gained from this book.

A fellow DBA at my company and I have remarked over the years that it would be so great if there was a book for Oracle DBAs that explained the correspondence between commands and techniques for SQL Server versus Oracle. Now it's here so we ordered a copy. These days, most employers want you to take care of SQL Server databases as well as Oracle ones so this book fills an important need. I will update this review when I've finished the book. I'm only on Chapter five now but, so far, excellent.

I wanted to learn SS2008 quickly. This book presented the material well and made it easy. Comparisons to Oracle made the conversion to SS2008 smooth.

Very well written. I had to put it down for a while as I had other priorities come up, but will be picking it back up in the near future to soak it back in.

I'm a senior Oracle DBA and needed to learn SQL Server. I purchased this book as a companion to a class. The book doesn't cover anything I needed. As an example I need to know how to perform a 'commit' in S 2008. The book does not cover the subject. Don't bother purchasing it.
