Silico-Magnetic Intelligence Corp., Nanuet, N.Y., has released a full-motion video and audio CD-ROM training course for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Programming.

With the series, titled "Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Programming on 7 CD-ROMs," database developers will learn techniques for programming for Microsoft SQL Server 2005, which has a host of advanced features. Expert database architect Kalman Toth's friendly presentation style makes this complex technical subject matter easy to understand. At the conclusion of this course the student will be prepared for successful database design and programming for SQL Server 2005, including using all the new features such as Management Studio, recursive queries, integrated projects and output pivoting. Since the course is practical in nature, IT professionals and SQL developer candidates should be able to pass job interviews and perform well in database designer and developer capacity.

Toth is a recognized international expert in database design, modeling, programming and administration with specific expertise using the Microsoft SQL Server. The first time he was a Microsoft SQL Server administrator was in 1992 on the ninety-sixth floor of World Trade Center North Tower with Deloitte Touche. Since 1998, he has accumulated eight database certifications from Microsoft. He has an MCDBA certification as well. He is the database consultant for large corporations such as Citibank, UBS, Deloitte Touche, Dun & Bradstreet, Reuters, Lehman Brothers and popular consumer Web site companies.

All 7 CD-ROMs contain full-motion screen image video with rich audio narration. They were prepared with Camtasia Studio - - and played back via Flash - Audio recording was done with Duo Professional Preamp. This particular method of multimedia training represents the best learning environment for the student. It is also the most cost-effective way of acquiring database knowledge and administration skills. Each CD-ROM chapter is broken down to units, typically 10 to 20 minutes in length. Students can replay each unit as many times as necessary to master it. Mouse movements in Management Studio - an administration GUI tool - can be learned by tracing the full-motion screen image. Students can achieve verbal confidence - necessary for interview and performance on the job - by repeating along loudly. Database scripting and programming can be mastered as they are run in Query Editor, a programming tool, and explained by the expert trainer in the background. Other programming tools, such as database object scripting, are being presented as well with true moving monitor images in full color.

Mastering the 7 CD-ROM SQL Server 2005 Programming training series is equivalent to three years of on-the-job experience. That is the source of confidence for SQL developer candidates looking for their first jobs or to upgrade their knowledge in their current position. It is also the source of reassurance for IT professionals expanding their database skill set.

The multimedia training package is priced at $695 and is currently shipping.
