SQL Server MCM Reading List

SQL Server MCM Reading List

One thing you may notice is that the SQL MCM recommended reading list goes beyond just listing our own Microsoft Press books.  The overall goal of the reading list was to ensure proper, high quality topic coverage based on the SQL Server MCM scope – regardless of the publisher. 

Professional SQL Server 2008 Internals and Troubleshooting was included on this list – and I just heard from Wiley today that they are offering a 40% discount on the book – so just wanted to pass on the details of this promotion.  I’ve quoted details below on how to participate – and no guarantees from Microsoft that this will be honored – just passing on the details from Wiley/Wrox for those of you diligently studying for SQL Server MCM who don’t already have this book:

“ISBNs: 9780470484289, 9780470618905

Timeframe: 11/15/10-5/31/11

To purchase, call 1-877-762-2974 and mention promo code SSIT8, or go to http://www.wrox.com/ and upon checkout, enter SSIT8 in the Promotion Code field. Click the “apply discount” button and finish the checkout process. Offer valid until May 31st, 2011.”

** Update below from Kalen too on O'Reilly discounts too! Thanks Kalen!

"O'Reilly, which is now publishing the MS Press titles, has a post-PASS deal. 40% off any print book... and 50% off any e-book. SQL 2008 Internals does have a ebook version now. www.oreilly.com. use coupon code TSSQP good until EOY."
