Book suggestions for studying for MCDBA

Hi All,

I'm about to begin studying for the MCDBA certification and I'm
wondering what books people would recommend?

The following gets a good review, so I'm planning on purchasing it:

MCSA/MCSE/MCDBA Self-Paced Training Kit: Microsoft SQL Server 2000
System Administration, 70-228, Second Edition

However, I'd like to also go through a second book as well, just to
make sure my coverage is as complete as possible, and I'm wondering if
anyone has any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance,

Murray

Hi

There are two things that you need to look at when doing these exams,
knowledge and exam technique. In general books that are for specifically for
an examination tend to be more focussed on exam technique and I would
personally would not get a second book for that! There are also websites
that can take you through sample exams as well as those found in the book.

For general knowledge, apart from hands on day to day use, you should study
books online and all the places etc listed at
