Schweet. Thanks!

Grabbed a couple of SQL Server books for work.

polychromenz says:

Awesome and great timing for me

I'll probably grab all of them, just because they are there. I have a databases class in the Fall, so I might thumb through the SQL book during the month or so bertween my summer and fall classes.

SirThoreth says:

Not a DBA or a coder, so I skipped most of the Visual Studio, SQL and Azure stuff.  I am a sysadmin, so I grabbed just about everything else, and will end up using nearly all of it.

EricLigman says:

I'm glad you all found the eBooks post(s) helpful.  Please share with your peers, colleagues, and friends so they can take advantage of the ones that would most benefit them as well.
