– Does it hurt to have too many indexes?
– When should I consolidate Indexes?
– Are there queries that get slower after I create an index?

But even more important, you’ll be able to explain how indexes are organized in SQL Server and what mechanism is responsible for the amazing performance gains you can achieve with them.
