    Comments about oreilly Getting Started with SQL Server 2012 Cube Development:

    This book is an excellent resource for those who are starting their SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) journey. This is like a boot camp where you are given the relevant information to begin the journey of SSAS developer and/or administrator.

    The book guides you through the complete install of SSAS and covers both multidimensional and tabular modes. I would have like to seen extra pages on the modeling aspect of the 3nf/Star Schema's.

    If you want to quickly grasp the fundamentals that give you the foundation to take your skill sets further, then this is one those books to purchase
