Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 System Administration Training Kit offers a structured, self-paced learning program primarily designed to prepare you for Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exam 70-028. It also functions well as a solid tutorial for present and prospective database administrators.
Painting with a broad brush, the book covers all of the practical skills necessary for successful administration. It opens with a general overview of the product and a high-level chapter on installation. A section on upgrading follows as well as an introduction to the administration utilities.
While the coverage of database files and data transfers appears to be a bit short-winded, the essentials for administrator survival remain intact. Web site builders will find short discussions on full-text indexing and the production of Web pages from the database. Another three brief chapters focus on backup and restoration issues. Performance monitoring, replication, and maintenance plans are addressed in a similarly brisk manner.
Each chapter comprises structured lessons designed to cover applicable topics with review sections and study questions to keep you on track. A companion CD-ROM includes hands-on lessons and multimedia presentations to help illustrate key concepts. This structured tutorial offers a relatively quick way to prepare for the 70-028 exam and should get you up to speed on basic administration tasks. --Stephen Plain
Upon course completion, students will be able to install SQL Server; manage files and databases; configure login security; implement database permissions; transfer and migrate data into databases; back up and restore databases; monitor SQL Server performance and automate administrative tasks; replicate data and distribute database information on the Web and more. This is the self-paced equivalent of the instructor-led training Course #832 and will prepare students for MCP exam 70-028, System Adminstration for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. CDs include lab exercises and 120-day trial software for SQL Server 7.0.
