Reviews - What do customers think about SQL Server 2000 Black Book: A Resource for Real World Database Solutions and Techniques?

SQL Server 2000 Black Book  Dec 29, 2004
'SQL Server 2000 Black Book' is a guide and reference for professionals looking for solutions. It is truly a "Comprehensive Problem Solver", as the cover says.

"SQL Server 2000 Black Book" provides in-depth study as well as reference material. It is comprehensive and yet precise, a perfect resource for developers looking for database and server reference material.

Patrick Dalton and Paul Whitehead have explained crucial points twice or more in close proximity, and, in different ways, so that you understand and remember those points, during, your adventures in practical life with SQL Server, Windows Operating System and Data Storage.
Do not buy this book/waste your money!  Apr 27, 2004
This is one case where Microsoft's book is much better than the other books on the topic. Buy the MS Administrator's Guide unless you are certain you are an advanced user/administrator/programmer, but no matter what, don't buy this book.
Don't waste your time  Nov 26, 2003
I bought this book on sale and thought it would be a good reference - looking at how large it is. However, I have not been able to get a single answer to any of my questions.

The text goes into no in-depth explanations and it literally has copied the Books On-Line documentation that comes with SQL Server! I don't know how they got by with this as I compared it almost word-for-word in many, many places.

I say it's a waste of time because you might as well use SQL's own doc because there's no extra cost and you can search for your topics. Then spend the money to get another reference that goes into more detail and covers what-if scenarios.

YABFB  Apr 27, 2002
Yet Another Big Fat Book. It has become an aggravating trend in the industry and this is one example among a myriad of clones.

Why is this just another big fat book? Page margins are about an inch and a half all around. The font is bigger than my two year old son's readers. A big cardboard flap holds two compact disks, one in the middle of the book and one at the end, that guarantees the book will never lay flat even after ripping them out. The CD's hold nearly useless timed evaluation copies of software that requires far more time to master. The pages are heavy bond, arguably to make the book fat as fat spines stand out on the shelf. The book covers a good deal of topics, but with less than 1000 words dedicated to any given one. Typos abound. The spellchecker calls the i386 architecture the 1386 (one three eight six) architecture in a half-dozen places.

The audience this book is aimed at might appreciate a light introduction without getting caught up details, so I'm giving it a three star. Like other reviews said, strictly beginner and in no way authoritative on any given topic. You'll need to make another purchase if you're looking to scratch the surface of SQL Server 2000.

Beginners Only  Jan 11, 2002
Too much of a limited revamp of BOL. Just beginner's only.
