Getting Started with SQL Server 2012 Cube Development

Packt Publishing have again asked me to review one of their books. At first I thought of declining the offer but then decided to invest the time. I am glad I did.

This book is an excellent resource for those who are starting their SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) journey. This is like a boot camp where you are given the relevant information to begin the journey of SSAS developer and/or administrator.

The book guides you through the complete install of SSAS and covers both multidimensional and tabular modes. I would have like to seen extra pages on the modeling aspect of the 3nf/Star Schema's.

If you want to quickly grasp the fundamentals that give you the foundation to take your skill sets further, then this is one those books to purchase.

NOTE: This should have been posted on 19th of January but was saved as a draft instead.
