Subj:   Re: Where to begin learning Teradata
From:   Edmond Ray


Reading the manuals is one way, but that takes alot of persistance and somewhere to practice. All of the manuals are available online at www.info.ncr.com.

You can down load the Demo version of Teradata for FREE at www.teradata.com.... You can also order the demo on CD from this same site. By the way the Demo CD includes complete online manuals, sample applications that you can look at, and all of the utilities to develop you own applications if you have a C complier like MS Visual C. (Note: The Teradata Demo requires a Windows NT4.0/2K/XP system with at least 128MB RAM & 1GB disk of space available.)

There are 3 books by Brian Marshall that came out several years ago. They are somewhat dated but the basic concepts are still the same.

The Teradata Database: Introduction and SQL
The Teradata Database: Application and Archive/Recovery Utilities
The Teradata Database: Implementation for Performance

They used to be available through Amazon.

Of course formal NCR training is much quicker and up to date but a bit more $$$. NCR also offers online courses that are more affordable I have taken them myself for a refresher they are quite good, and easy to follow.
