5-0 out of 5 stars Great Way to Get Started
An excellent introduction to Microsoft SQL Server for the beginner. It starts with the basic concepts of what a database is and how it is used. It covers installation of SQL Server 2005 exhaustivly. It then the best description I've seen on the management tools that come with the database.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for Dev's only
Bob's book is written for the passionate Microsoft developer. DBA's and IT Pro's will find this book useful to have on the shelf, as there are number of features that touch the life of the Admin. Additionally, AW press has released another book, SQL Server 2005 Distilled, if you are looking for something less deep, I would try that book too.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great book for Database Developers
This is a very good book for Database Developers. It covers most topics thoroughly. Some topics like SQLCLR and XQuery are covered too much in detail for my taste, but who knows one day I might need it! (there is a 17 page WSDL in chapter 12 .. I don't know who decided to put this in :-) Initially the minutiae kind of put me off, but over time I have started to like this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars The New Testament
I feel cheated by the publishers of this book, because it was described as a "Bible" for SQL Server 2005: a "definitive hands-on guide" with "virtually every key concept" explained. It does not fit such a description, unless one's idea of a "Bible" can leave out Genesis, Exodus and the rest of the Old Testament.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent walk throughs
If you learn better through the combination of conceptual overview and detailed walk throughs you'll love Brian Larson's approach.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great overview
I would agree with the other statements about this book covering many aspects of BI.Unlike other books that focus primarily on Analysis Services, this book covers everything from data source integration to custom reporting.I was even a bit surprised to see a section on artificial intelligence as it applies to data mining.Just as the others mentiond, if it covered every aspect of each of the pieces of BI, the book would be too big.I would have liked to see more focus on the key elements to BI rather than briefly touching them as it does everything else.

3-0 out of 5 stars Save a tree
OK -- it's not terrible, but it reminds me of many books that start with "this is a field, this is a record, this is a table." It started fine - I learned the difference between star and snowflake schema, the benefits of a data mart, and the key feature of SQL 2005 Analysis Services that addresses the latency between OLTP and OLAP (it's a feature called Universal Data Model (UDM). All cool. The trouble begins in the subsequent chapters with the cutesy MaximumMinimum company and the painstaking, step-by-step "now you do it" approach. Which means you can only make use of the info if you're sitting in front of a computer. Not my cuppa. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A very good introductory book
This book is exactly what it says, a Beginner's book.Buy it if you are a real beginner but prefer something else even in case you are at the intermediate level.Now if you are a beginner with SQL Server this is a very good book.It is precise, with good examples and very explanatory.If I would have to point out potential future improvements, that would be using the AdventureWorks database for examples instead of the traditional Northwind.Also one more thing would be to explain more the new features of the SQL Server such as: Notification services, XQuery and Service Broker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Technical Book
I have never written a review about anything.I found this book so enlightening and so well written that I thought I owed it to the author to let others know how much I enjoyed the book.SQL Server 2005 has so many facets that it is hard to begin learning it own your own.This book has come to the rescue.It leads us through a lot of topics in a very logical progression.The examples are very well chosen and very easy to try out.(I actually typed in every single one of them myself--because that is how I learn.)What is incredible is how well the author keeps track of what he has already told us when he advances to a new topic.I am looking forward to the release of his new book "Professional SQL Server 2005 Programming."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great SQL Server Book -- Balanced, Practical, Comprehensive
I purchased this book for 2 reasons. First, I'm in IT and my organization uses quite a few professionally created small/medium SQL Server databases. While I'm familiar with the essentials of SQL Server administration, I wanted to know more about the data side to help me think through problems that arise as well has to help me leverage the data by using it as a source for other applications and custom build databases. I also just started creating small ASP sites and want to use SQL Server 2005 as the back end.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Pocket Reference For SQL
This is a nice, quick guide for referencing SQL.This book is not a 900 page behemoth to teach you all the ins and outs of SQL setup and performance tweaking, nor is it a 30 page list of commands.Rather, it is a nice "tweener" guide (200+ pages) to get your feet wet and remind you of what commands are and how SQL can be used.'SQL In A Nutshell' covers SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, and PostgreSQL, going over the SQL standards that you can expect from these favorite flavors of SQL.Light on examples but heavy on syntax, I feel that this is a nice companion manual to have at your side when you need to remind yourself how a particular command should be written.
5-0 out of 5 stars Cross platform syntax reference
This is a solid desk reference for SQL syntax which provides invaluable material on the portability of each type of statement. The heart of the book is the four hundred pages of statement reference. Each statement is described with it's syntax and options. Then the support for each database (DB2, MySQL, Oracle, PostgresSQL, and SQL Server) is described in detail. There is a similar 120 page reference on SQL functions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best PL/SQL book I have ever read
I have attempted to learn pl/sql for a few years now and have been unable to find a book that pulls it all together. This book gently introduces you to a topic and then then shows you how to apply it. The comical nature of the author also makes the book interesting and fun. I believe its a must read for anyone attempting to learning pl/sql.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
I am using it in the context of a text book under one of the authors. My only complaint with the book is that some of the topics seems to be shallow in content (for example records in chapter 5). As a person just learning PL/SQL I rather like the fact that it covers many topics, and takes the time to show example after example with explanations. The organization seems to be fairly uniform. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn PL/SQL as it has helped me immensely. I have found the index to be rather lacking (hence the four stars).

4-0 out of 5 stars A couple of bad chapters, but good for 1Z0-147
I bought this book hoping it would help me pass the 1Z0-147 Oracle PL/SQL certification test, and it did.First the bad news: chapters five and six are horrible.The person that wrote these two chapters writes in the most pedantic way possible.Pages upon pages are filled with highly repetitive code, with each example followed by a detailed analysis of every statement!Compare this to the coding examples in other chapters, where statements of interest are highlighted and then followed by descriptions of their significance.If you want a laugh, check out page 225, where the author of chapter six says, "A problem with programming books is that concepts need to be illustrated with an economy of space."Wow.

4-0 out of 5 stars Big...but it reads like a novel!
Great book and easy to read! Author explain theory in basicterms and then, he give scripts or examples of how it should work or be written at TSQL level. Index's book it's almost perfect; for being a 1400 pages book it is not difficult to find any topic on it.You will find a lot of nice SQL 2000 tuning tips which add an extra value to the book itself. Could be used as a MCDBA prep. book and of course, in your job or if you're into Databases Admin. and Design business.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
I was suprised but the book is really good for both beginers as well as experts. I learned a lot from this book even thought I have been working with sql server for a long time.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best there is...ok so now i think Sams is better than Wrox...lol
Well I needed a crash course in SQL server management and some T-SQL.I attacked this book head-on. The book is very comprehensive and i am very amazed. It really is a complete guide to the GUI on SQL server. If you want some hard core T-SQL guidance then get another book...in addition. Sams teach yourself t-sql in 21 days is great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, someone puts the pieces together.
I have spent the past ten years making my living developing integrated & automated financial systems using Excel, Access, and VBA for accounting and finance departments.That said, I literally have dozens of Excel, Access, and VBA books on my bookshelf.This is the only book that I have ever seen that integrates Excel and Access.It of course uses VBA to accomplish much of this.
5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!!!
Do you use Microsoft Office to handle data? If you do, then this book is for you! Author Michael Schmalz, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that will show you how Access and Excel can work together to improve your reporting and data analysis.
5-0 out of 5 stars Shows how to combine the two programs to get the best from both
Michael Schmalz's shows how to combine the two programs to get the best from both. All too often Excel and Access users remain separate; yet user interfaces exist which allow Access databases to be integrated with Excel's analytical features for maximum results. Chapters cover everything from VBA applications and graphs to working across desktops with package applications. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Limited coverage yet very handy
Sack's book is of unusually high quality for its publisher, Apress, in providing plainspoken and consistently organized descriptions of its topic. Despite limited coverage of SQL Server 2005, it has proven very handy. As of summer, 2006, it really has no competition in providing practical advice about using SQL Server 2005 other than the Books Online documents from Microsoft.
5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, relevant and thorough
I'm an original fan of a previous book written by Joe and afterwards began a dialogue with him that I'm happy to say has continued, in part, due to the ability of me as a reader to get three important things from any book - READ it ALL, it's RELEVANT to what I am looking for and can be practically implemented in the real world, and finally its thorough enough that it doesn't leave you wondering why you just learned something...Thanks Joe for previous books and this one.I wish you continued success.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Advanced Organizer
First, I'm not a DBA but I install, maintain, and use SQL Server 2005 in lab and workgroup settings.
2-0 out of 5 stars First 3 chapters looks promising. After that it is useless
During reading the first 3 chapters. this book was very promising. Thethe author kept repeating himself "I will show you how to do this, to do that". But after the first 3 chapters, his writing becomes dull. Nothing useful to go on reading. Maybe He was rushing to publish this book or the style that he prepared to go into his writing just died out.Whatever reason, one thing I learned from this book is: What a SQL Server DBA is supposed to do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. I read so many 5 stars books going into details about writing code to backup, restore, scheduling...etc. But those books forget one point: What a SQL Server DBA is supposed to do on a daily basis. Maybe it is not important for an experienced DBA but it may be important for other I.T guys who want to be DBA. That's why we read books for.
2-0 out of 5 stars Careful
A pet peeve i have w/ Microsoft books is they just mirror the help files. This admin guide is not much more than regurgitated help files. I was hoping for some useful examples, closer to real life problems & solutions. Not there. Plz use the help files in Books Online to look up topics THEN examine the same topic in this book at a local bookstore BEFORE buying it. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Reference for Database Developers Moving to SQL 2005 From 2000
We have been heavy users (both as developers and administrators) of SQL Server 2000 since it came out in 2000.We were anxious to upgrade to SQL Server 2005 and did so in early 2006.For the first couple of months we largely utilized SQL 2005 in the same way that we had done with SQL 2000 (with the exception of using the new Management Studio) and did not really exploit the new features of SQL 2005.This book definitely opened our eyes to many of the new features of the SQL 2005 database and we are using many of those features in our current development efforts.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for
If you're looking for a "what's new in SQL Server 2005" this book covers that.If you're looking for a reference book on the product, that goes into how to configure or upgrade from an earlier version--Keep Looking.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent SQL 2005 Coverage
This book does an awesome job of hitting everything that is new in SQL 2005.There is a lot to cover so it doesn't go into deep depth, but it does give you a good overview and points you in the right direction to find more information out on a particular topic by making sure you have a great introduction. ...

I bought "Learning SQL" in order to begin to prepare myself for the Microsoft Certification Exam for SQL Server 2005.

All of the important concepts are explained, and the examples given are very clear and intuitive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best reference guide for designing your SQL Server database
This guide not only provides references on SQL Server syntax, but also contains a brief review of best practices with database design. Includes all normal forms with database normalization, indexing, and data integrity.

5-0 out of 5 stars BestIT Book I Ever Read
This book is an amazingly clear and concise book, especially for the "non-gurus" among us.The explanations of general topics like normalization, the history of markup languages (in the XML section) are so well written you could give them to management and even they would understand what you are doing (maybe that's not such a good idea).Full of tidbits like why transaction logs grow so much faster than data files.Nielson writes about SQL Server 2000 as used in the real world, not just as an interesting piece of technology.Bravo!I would give it 10 stars if I could.I leave nitpicking to the gurus.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for reading and as a reference guide
Very complete and illustrating. I am happy to have it on my desktop. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you work heavily with T-SQL...
Buy, borrow, or STEAL THIS BOOK!
5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone who wants to be an expert using TSql
This textbook on TSQL covers not only the basics such as DML, DDL and basic data types, but also talks about advanced topics such as Transactions,Stored procs, Triggers and Performance tuning in very good detail. If you are ever thinking of writing a SQL Server sproc or an app layer on top of it, read this book first.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners or for a review of SQL
This book has no coherent structure, but is a conglomeration of tips.Many of the coding examples use fairly complex SQL without explaining it.The join section is laughably short.It is probably most useful for someone already experienced in SQL who can read through it to pull out "tips".I have been away from SQL for a few years and wanted to brush up and this absolutely was not the book to buy.What a waste of money. ...

Editorial Review

When it comes to selecting computer books, deciding which book to buy can sometimes be even more confusing than the software it is written about. However, if you are looking for a book to instruct you on the use of SQL Server 2000, Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad not good
In general the book is ok. The author needed to make more research in some areas and not made use only of his own experience.
4-0 out of 5 stars Tiny font
Excellent book, but the font is VERY small which makes reading difficult even though I do not have vision problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best!!
I have this book and I can say it is the best SQL Server book I have ever read. It may even be the best Development/Computer book I have. Every chapter is easy to read, detailed and concise. The coverage is phenomenal. I use this for reference quite a bit. The only thing that is missing is more detail on DTS... but that is a book in itself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most invaluable references I have in my library
I'll keep this brief, as my title says it all.I have been developing access applications on a professional level for many years.Have several applications that large companies use to run there business.This cookbook has helped me in more ways then I can count.I wish I could find more like it.I use it just as a cookbook.Look thru to find a similiar situation that I am trying to solve.The examples are written very well.The code is very exact and on the money.While most of the examples listed are not always exactly like what I'm trying to solve, it definitely gets the creative juices flowing on how to solve my problem.
5-0 out of 5 stars Recipes for Access Developer Success
The Access Developer's Handbook Set (search ISBN: 0782140114) and in particular, Volume 1: Desktop Edition (search ISBN: 0782123708) is my definitive resource to approximately 4 years of Access development.I've got more stickies and highlights in this set than all other Access books combined.So when I came across the Access cookbook and realized that the same two indispensible authors (Getz & Litwin) put together a resource of Access developer solutions, I had to have it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Access Developers.. this is a must have!
When I started my job, my first assignment was develop several Access databases. What they wanted was beyond what I knew of Access. After buying this book and Access Database Programming and Design, I was well on my way to develop a quite advanced Access database application. I would ask myself, "I wonder if I can..." After consulting this book for the anwser, BAM! I found it there. This book covers everything from simple VBA to advanced techniques such as incorporating a email system into a database, linked dropdown combo boxes using SQL, and creating VB Form control that tells you who all is currently in a database using ADO and VBA! I would say anyone wanting to cook a mean Access database should definitely pick this one up. It is an invaluable reference if you want to develop professional Access databases with incredible functionality! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional SQL Performance Book
'The Art of SQL' by Stephane Faroult is an outstanding book for any and all database developers that want to learn how to write better SQL code and make their database efficiency go UP UP UP!!Encompassing 300+ pages, this well-written and advanced book goes way past the basics of writing SELECT and INSERT statements, taking things to the next level and then some!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Most Unusual Technical Book
Imagine a cookbook with no recipes but after you read it it helps to become abetter cook.This book does not specifically tells what to do.It does not have codes or technical jargon. It gives you an understanding.The book reads well, it is not full of technical references but it is not to say this book is for someone who does not know the workings of a DBMS.The author draws a relevant parallel between designing a database and waging a war.I enjoyed the quotes thoughtfully peppered in the book.Do me a favor and do not get it...in case we are going after the same job

5-0 out of 5 stars This is your graduate level course in SQL - how and why
Probably most database solution developers and DBAs have picked up their knowledge of the subject as they have needed it, rather than in a formal and structured (so to speak) method. And even those that have had a structured education probably learned a lot more while in the field. And so there are always gaps. Gaps in technique, but also gaps in the why of many things that I, for example, took for granted about large DBMS's and SQL.
