    Great Reference Book

    I always liked the Administrator Pocket Consultant series having several of them, going all the way back to Windows 2000. They are half the height and width of a regular book, but packed full on information (this one at almost 700 pages). The title really says what the book is and what it is good for. It is a great reference book.

    I am not a DBA, but a developer that at times must work SQL Server. The book gives enough of an explanation to perform the required tasks and understand what I am doing and why. Need to know how to do something or forgot how to do something, a quick look up and you have the answer. The book is straight forward, informative and easy to understand. There are lots of examples and step by step instructions. Even though it more of a reference book, I like just opening it up and reading a section.
