SQL for a beginner

    Hi guys,
    I am interested in a career as a Database Admin and I am wondering where is a good place to start?
    I work full time so I will be studying in my own time.
    Would the Microsoft Database Fundimentals exam be a good place to start? Or is there maybe something I should study before this?

    I assume going through the MS certs would be one approach. I would be interested to hear others opinions on it.
