Hi EE experts,

I am having basic knowledge of SQL and SQL Server 2005. But the knowledge I am having is very much limited to study purpose only. I want knowledge to be able to work in corporate environment. I would like to explore each and everything about SQL and SQL Server 2005 and 2008.

When I say everything, that means, all tasks and features of Sql Server 2005 and 2008 which I can do with help of them. And I wish if I can learn Sql deeply from some good resources online. Or if any one of you can mention some nice high quality books which teach you practical along with theory.

I have heard about Database Administrator. But I am not sure from where to start, what to learn. So please help in context of all my questions.

I would appreciate if someone can provide me suggestions to be best in the field of SQL.

Thanks and Regards,
Vikram Singh Saini

Hands on work experience. Nothing beats it! Start your career focusing on SQL Server. You cannot learn SQL deeply without putting your hands on to the real world. I suggest start with being a SQL developer -- it's a though role but really challenging. You will learn something everyday.

Just my 2 cents...
