Silico-Magnetic Intelligence Introduces CD-ROM Training for SQL Server 2005


NEW YORK, NY, March 1, 2005 -- Silico-Magnetic Intelligence Corp. has today released a full-motion video and audio CD-ROM training course for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administration.

With the “Practical Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Administration on 21 CD-ROMs” training course, database administrators will learn techniques for configuring, administering and programming 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 administration, design and programming SQL Server 2005 including all the new features such as Management Studio, recursive queries, integrated projects and database mirroring. Since the course is practical in nature, DBA (Database Administrator) and SQL developer candidates should be able to pass job interviews and perform well in DBA/developer capacity.

Kalman Toth is a recognized international expert in Database design, modeling, programming and administration with specific expertise in Microsoft SQL Server. The first time he administered Microsoft SQL Server was in 1992 on the 96th Floor of World Trade Center North Tower with Deloitte-Touche. Since 1998, he has accumulated 8 database certifications from Microsoft. He has an MCDBA certification as well. He is database consultant to large corporations such as Citibank, UBS, Deloitte & Touche, Dun & Bradstreet, Reuters, Lehman Brothers and popular consumer website companies.

All 21 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 (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 (programming tool), and explained by the expert trainer in the background. Other administration tools, such as SQL Profiler (Performance Monitoring Tool), are being presented as well with true moving monitor images in full color.

Mastering the 21 CD-ROM SQL Server 2005 Administration training series is equivalent to three years’ on-the-job experience. That is the source of confidence for DBA 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 training package is priced at $995, and is currently shipping.
