Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is well written and covers a lot about SQL Server 2005. The only real downside for anybody who is using the book for database management and administration those chapters have to be downloaded and printed (if you want a hard copy) from the vendor. The first 16 chapters are part of the book, the last 9 are downloaded. Talk about a waste of a book. I could have just bought the e-book version and printed it out myself and probably saved money and the hassle of having to print everything out.

Short Summary:
SQL SERVER 2005 is a trusted database platform that provides organizations a competitive advantage by allowing them to obtain faster results and make better business decisions. This book covers all the topics which can help Database Administrators to be successful and effective.

Detail summary:
This book is covers all the topics and modules of the SQL Server 2005, e.g. database engine, Analysis Services, Integration Services, replication, Reporting Services, Notification Services, services broker and full text search. This book improves the experience these professionals have working with SQL Server. Book also provides detailed guidance on management, administration, and monitoring.

Role of DBA does not end when SQL Server is already deployed. The real task of DBA begins when SQL Server is successfully deployed. This book assumes the reader has experience with installing SQL Server 2005, so it goes far beyond the basic installation and setup methods. One thing I really liked about this book is that it focuses on day-to-day administration, best practices, and industry case scenarios. Another interesting fact about this book is all topics and examples covered in this book are based on the new features and functionality included with SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2.

The topic of SQL Server 2005 administration and management is huge and this book covers almost all of those important topics. This book is divided in total of six parts. Part 5 and part 6 are available online only. Around 300 pages are available online only and it can be downloaded by registering the book. When registered this book it also enables 45 day free subscription of Safari.

Rating: 4 stars

In Summary, This is great concise book which all DBA should keep on desk for frequent reference.
