SQL Server Interview Questions and Answers for all Database Developers and Database Administrators 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.276

As the title suggests, SQL Server Interview Questions And Answers is an extensive collection of potential interview questions related to the SQL Server, and their correct answers.

In SQL Server Interview Questions And Answers, Pinal Dave and Vinod Kumar have compiled and curated a huge collection of questions and answers related to the SQL Server.

Good grades are nowhere enough to land good jobs in the IT industry, which is a competitive field in an equally competitive era. Candidates are expected to be well-versed in the basic or ‘key’ concepts of their respective fields and areas of study, during their interview. This book could prove to be helpful to such candidates, who are interested in learning or re-learning the aforementioned key concepts.

SQL Server Interview Questions and Answers begins with an introduction to database concepts that are related to the SQL Server. Some generic questions that are asked during such interviews are provided in the second section. Developer questions that are commonly asked are given in the third section, which is followed by a section that features the tricky questions that are often asked.

The book then takes readers through the questions that are asked on the 2008 version of the SQL Server. Questions related to DBA (Database Administration) skills and Data Warehousing are covered in the subsequent chapters. The last chapter is titled General Best Practices.

This book is tailor-made for candidates who seek information about the SQL Server-related questions that they can expect from interviewers. It not only covers such potential questions, but their correct answers as well.

The book is a culmination of years of work, and it is mainly popular because interviewers and even candidates who have attended such interviews contribute their experiences and help the authors keep the text updated constantly.

Good Book on SQL Server interview questions

This book clealy explains all possible questions asked in SQL Server as part of interview. Each question has a detailed answer. The questions are categorised in many sections like "Common Developer Questions"," Common Tricky Questions","DBA Skills Related Questions","Data Warehousing Interview Questions & Answers",etc. There are detailed informations about not only basic concepts like Normalisation,Constraints,etc but also about locking, performance tuning and Administration.

Another highlight of this book is that at the end of developer and DBA questions,there is a quick points from Joes to Pros book 1, 2, 3 and 4 with title "Points to ponder" which is used to know some additional informations related to the questions. This book is very useful not only to those who are looking for a job in SQL Server but to interviewers too to have a quick reminder of what they knew already.

So, have this book and get ready to face SQL Server interviews.

Fantastic book for SQL Server Enthusiasts

Pinal Dave and Vinod Kumar brings so-far one of the best informative books on SQL Server. This book can be utilized as a beginner's complete course for SQL Server newbies and as a refresher course for SQL Server experts. The trivia enveloped in this book are very interesting and truly educational. The Dba Skills Related Questions are challenging. All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone who's into SQL Server.

SQL Server Interview Questions and Answers for all Database Developers and Database Administrators

The book is good, but definitely not exhaustive. And many a time, this book will feel like a promotional venture for another book 'Sql Server Joes to Pros' by the same set of authors. In the foreward itself, the authors make it clear that this book cannot serve as a stand-alone material for interviews. I think, that is fine. Because SQL SERVER has just too many aspects to be covered in a book of 200+ pages. My suggestion would be-keep other materials handy while you are referring to this book. This book is just meant to give you an idea of what questions you might face. Coupled with those ideas and a good hands-on background, you should be able to manage most interviews. One complaint I have against this book is it provides very little material on Sql Server SQL part.Ranking functions, rollup,cube,recursive CTEs etc. are kind of lacking here.

I cant its excellent but very useful

The moment this book was released, inspired with the reviews and immediately ordered with flip kart. Keep aside about book, the service flip kart has given to me superb and excellent. Thank You Flip kart.

About the book, the index reflects more effective and very enthusiastically opened to complete the book, but the word frames are much confusing and concept conclusions bit worried. But i would say for the people who are suffering where to start, what to start while preparing for interviews this book help allot. Read It, for sure you will get a great idea about SQL server, almost covered all concepts. Pinale is a such brilliant guy, his solutions for critical scenarios even though those are complex but the pinale soultion would be much easier.
Pinale you Rocks !!! And i appreciate your book.

A book must for all Database developer.(Master your Basics)

If I could have got a chance to select the title of the book, it must be "Master Your Basics" in SQL Server. This is a perfect book and my suggestion for all developers will be read this kind of book when ever you think you are missing the basics. Mastering advance topics will not take so much of your time but yes it is the basic that matters and this book is a perfect guide for improvement.

Preparing for interview is a different thing, but preparing yourself to lead/master topics/achieve goals/ making yourself strong, you must sharpen your basics.

Pinal and Vinod are trying their best to come up with all small things that matters in SQL Server and there series continues with some online learning sessions like 60seconds tips and Plural-sight videos.

Nice Read

As the book title clearly indicates there are Q&A from SQL covering most of the SQL server functionalities. Book has nice simple English language which makes a read easy and quick. As part of daily job we are not using many things, so this book can act as great refresher. But meaning that its a good refresher does not mean that you will not learn something new. There will be somethings which are not in your knowledge.
