However, I’d still recommend a book like this to someone starting fresh, just because it could contain some information that you might not have thought about. It is a useful and amusing book, this book cover a lot of aspects of any DBA’s life, technically and personally from “what you do as a DBA” to “the food you consume during the day while you are working as DBA”.
I’m sure i will read it again or at least review a lot of it’s chapters. Bfcome 02, Biju Jose rated it it was ok. Well First days of a DBA are explained in a nice manner,the book is weak in technical matters but touches the topics you will find in everyday life of a dba. One thing I found in the book a lot of pages are dedicated for conserving one’s health, I think the author needs some more pages to fill, and it entirely deals with the SQL server so this book is for those guys.
It shows some light to the life a dba in a nice manner. First 70p are very good for reading but when it comes to an end we comes t Well First days of a DBA are explained in a nice rockstat book is weak in technical matters but touches the topics you will find in everyday life of a dba.

May 12, Jennifer Swanson rated it it was amazing. I am starting a position as a DBA and wanted to make sure I had the lingo, the basics and some kind of overview of what to expect. This book is exactly that! It was an easy and informative read. There are technical basics, even screen shots to help with troubleshooting. It was not only great to read but will be a valuable reference. Even better that it’s on my iPad so I can take it with me without looking like I’m dragging around how-to’s.
Definitely worth the purchase.
