PLEASE BE CAREFUL
I studied this book to prepare for the exam. I eventually
realized that the topic needs more detail. I am now
working my way through the EXAM PREP version. If you want
to know the product, study EXAM PREP for THIS situation.
Other EXAM CRAM books are ok. SQL 7 is very complicated.
Hope this will help you -- Michael

Please do yourself a favor - Don't buy this book...
I used the Exam Cram series to study for my MCSE tests. All 6 books were very close to the tests and were very well written. I would highly recommend those books. Then came my MCSE+I. I choose SQL, and this Exam Cram book based on the previous Exam Cram books. This book was horrible. From a "technical review" standpoint, aside from the test, it was also horrible. It lacked any structure, and had no correlation to the test questions what-so-ever. This book was written simply by cutting and pasting every possible command line statement and all possible syntax and parameters/switches that relate to these commands. It was like reading the appendix to the SQL user's manual. The test did not have a single command line question - it was all GUI, or rights or replication methodologies and design philosphies. I can not see how this book could possibly be helpful for either the test or the real world. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere... Thank God I had used the Transcender exam as a backup!
