Top Customer Reviews
It's probably not for anyone with a year+ of MDX writing experience (though you might pick up a few things), but it is a great start if you only have minimal exposure to the MDX language itself. I started with an understanding of Data Warehousing and how to design cubes, and felt this book wasted no time jumping right into actual MDX syntax that I wanted. If you don't have a knowledge of DWes and cubes, you might be a bit lost.
Within the first several dozen pages I felt I had a better understanding of MDX than many hours of perusing articles on the internet. Though the book is a bit 'short' compared to many other IT books, it gets right to the important stuff. It very concisely lays out Concept > Query > Results > Analysis, which is a very effective way to teach this topic. I would have liked if had been a bit longer and went into some more complex real world applications (it has real world applications, I just would have liked even more) - but its only billed as an intermediate book anyway.
Very happy with the purchase.
