Microsoft SQL Server otherwise known as MS SQL Server is an application used to produce computer databases on MS Windows operating system. This can work with small databases like personal list of contacts. This is also applicable for average business, car repair shop for example. Apart from that, this is also helpful for large set of records such as local bank or supermarket. More importantly, this can also handle very large databases like census of a country.
For the benefits of many, there are now several sites created to provide lessons as well as articles about the correct usage of MS SQL Server to create databases. This way, the functions of MS SQL Server can be maximized. However, to those who are interested to take the lessons, they are required to install MS SQL Server on their computers. In case there is none, a trial version is available from the Microsoft website that can last for 180 days.
Of course, before they start on the lessons, they must ensure that their computers run a proper operating system. For those who are just learning, they can use a MS Windows Server 2003 or MS Windows XP Professional; although in this case, they must also install MS SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition. Similarly, a trial version of MS SQL Server is made available by Microsoft on its own website so many students can study SQL and databases. This offer is very advantageous since many of the companies today do not offer a trial version with the same duration. After the lessons, students can already take chance in starting a business or finding a job.
