I’m looking for recommendations on a book for SQL database administration. At work I have had sql sort of dropped on me. Its sql 2008 but I’m wondering if a book on sql 2016 will be fine for me in case I want to write the exam? My main objective is to learn as much as I can to give my self the skills for database administration at work but I’d like to have the option to write the Microsoft exam if I so decide.
I’ve worked in IT as a systems administrator since 1996. I have had little exposure to sql.
