  1. Jason says:

    Have you read through the book?  The training portion of the book requires 4 virtual machines, domains, etc…  I have not read through everything yet, but the requirements are excessive.

  2. Gene says:

    Jason – If you knew anything about SQL Server AlwaysOn this would come as no surprise and it is NOT excessive.

  3. Marlon Ribunal - SQL, Code, Coffee, etc. says:

    @Jason – I bought this book. The lab requirement is not excessive. A laptop with at least i3 processor and 8GB of RAM would run the VM environment decently.

  4. Is there an errata to the book? I found a couple of "typos" that are more like errors.

    E.g. p.298 Chapter 7 Lesson 1 Question 2: Instead of "SQL Server Agent service" should read "SQL Server service".

  5. Chapter 9 Lesson 2 answers are almost all wrong (answers do not match questions)

    Great samples, helps for certification.
