Execution plans are the first-place database professionals go to tune their query, but they often provide misleading information. The science behind query optimization is knowing what to believe and what to ignore from the execution plan. You’ll learn the 3 biggest issues with the execution plan and tips and tricks to overcome them easily and efficiently to ensure better performance.
