Dan Whittington

"Dear SQLUSA, Your 21 Multimedia CDROMs is the best IT investment I have done in the past 5 years. The CDs are easy to follow. It enables me to learn SQL Server 2005 at my own pace. I have mastered about 85% of the CDs so far, would be completing SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant in the next two weeks and have listened to many MSDN & Technet Webcasts. My question is: Do I have what it takes to work in a 24/7 Web/Production environment?"

"The SQL 2005 21 cd course is much better designed and useful than any other IT course I have attended in the last 5 years. Another nice thing about it that you can replay the cd-s again and again until you really absorb the knowledge."
Felicia Beckford

"The SQL 2005 training videos arrived yesterday, and when I got home from my daily commute, I was surprised. I have gotten through most of the sample databases video CD-ROM, and am very satisfied with your efforts. I'm looking forward to completing the 21 cd-rom series over the next few weekends. Thank you again for being the best resource I've ever found for SQL Server 2005. I can't explain to you the experience that I've had since discovering your website, and what a great relief it is to know that you exist and have done such a fantastic job of presenting this complex information for the rest of us."
Jeff Watson

"Till today (Jan. 2007) one of the best training CDS for learning Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administration and Programming."
Ahmad Lubnani

"The video portion of the training lets you view the computer screen user interfaces used to administer, design, and program SQL Server as though you were looking over the instructor's shoulder. All you have to do is follow the mouse and the cursor as the instructor talks you through the short and practical lessons."
MSDN Magazine

"I wanted to thank you for producing your wonderful SQL Server 2005 videos. With the assistance of your multimedia training cd-s, I managed to master practical SQL 2005 administration and programming in just 21 days during my vacation."
Ray Burbank

"It took me almost two months to work my way through over 40 hours of video. It was the most I ever learned in my life in comparable time period. I feel much richer in relational database knowledge, and very happy to have a new skill set. Well done SQLUSA."
Diane O'Connel

"I have found the video-audio cd instruction set very useful in preparing me for my new career as a SQL Server 2005 DBA. Not only an interesting way to learn a complex subject, but the most effective method since you can replay the videos as many times as you need to."
Joe Skipper

Richard Gilmore

"I wanted to tell you that I got a job as an SQL Server 2005 DBA/developer! Confident due to the result of your excellent multimedia training, I landed three interviews. The second interview brought forth a generous full-time job offer a couple of days later. Hence I had to cancel the third interview. I would again like to express my gratitude for the incredible life-changing training experience."
Allister Belinsky

"Thanks for the Ten Step Performance Tuning Bootcamp. It is extremely valuable advice for SQL Server performance tuning. I administer over 40 servers. Currently I am fixing some of our servers for better performance following the guide."
Hamed Khursand

"SQL Server 2005 Administration on 21 CD-ROMs is the leading multimedia product in SQL 2005 training. We have decided to make it available to all of our DBA-s by acquiring a 5-user license. As an IT Director I am cognizant that there is a lot to learn about the new release."
John Donovan

"There is an inconceivable amount of new learning with SQL Server 2005. It is not only a new release, but also a major revamp in several areas of the server operation and application. SQLUSA training cds do a first-class job in presenting the old and the new features of SQL2K5."
Bryan Williams

"SQLUSA is justifiably called the best SQL training company. The instructor is a real expert. The video material is well organized, builds from the ground up to achieve exceptionally good memory retention. The examples are extremely practical in nature, no waste here for unneeded theoretical explanations. This is just what you need to pass an interview and perform as an SQL Server 2005 professional."
David Castro

"These 21 CDs are the best investment I have ever made. I attended a local computer training school to get started with SQL Server 2005, and after paying $2,500 for hands-on training, I found it impossible to remember most of things we had covered. Your CDs include more information, in an easier-to-understand presentation, than the many weeks of school I attended. Your course is also more hands-on and practical. It also gives me an instant reference for all the things I am trying to learn, whenever I need it, right in my apartment. It's like having an expert private tutor built into my computer."
Nancy Buckley

"The 21-CD SQL Server 2005 administration curriculum is very well designed. It requires an aggressive learner though to master it in 21 days as claimed by the publisher. Took me three times as long. The instructor did an excellent job of planning and teaching the intensive, practical, knowledge-packed CD sessions."
Ken Wood

"I got my dream DBA job! My new company is already on SQL Server 2005 platform. They liked me because of my extensive SQL Server 2005 knowledge, which I mostly gained from the 21 CD. I studied the CD-s and the books for 3 months full time since I was on unemployment. It paid off big time. I can't wait to prove myself on the new job and further my professional IT career. The training CD-s were very good investment for me."
Jack King

"I am an experienced database developer. I purchased the training package to get myself on the fast track with SSIS and new T-SQL features. The videos contain many practical examples and are easy to follow on my copy of SQL Server 2005, providing an ideal hands-on learning environment for the feature-rich SQL 2005."
Anders Parker

"At the CTOís suggestion, I purchased the SQL 2005 Grand Slam training package. I took all the video courses on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 in the Grand Slam package. The acquired knowledge and practical skills enabled me to get into advanced, high-visibility and large projects at my company. Many thanks SQLUSA."
