SQL Server Resources
We have a huge amount of free information on our site:
A collection of all the whitepapers we think you need to read to help you with design, implementation, and troubleshooting. Covering the current release and back to SQL Server 2000.
We have published a range of different SQL candidate assessment tests with our partner Kandio. While Kandio offers an extensive free trial, you can hire better SQL experts for your organization or team, starting from only $19. If you ever hired a wrong server “expert”, you’ll probably know the damage that this person can do in a short amount of time. That is why we partnered with Kandio to offer better candidate screening material to all businesses and individuals. Our tests with Kandio includes hundreds of real-life SQL problems that we would expect candidates to know before hiring or interviewing them.
