Recomend it together with Beginning SQL Server 2005 Programming by Robert Vieira (WROX)

Admittedly I do have a fair amount of programming skills. Albeit not specifically in SQL server, but enough to understand most programming syntax and business logic. By page 83 where the author finally begins his first programming lesson he has his first typographical error. A typo in a line of program code is like a surgeon saying, "oh darn" during open-heart surgery. A typo present in an example line of program code for a student is disastrous. As I said I do have prior programming language experience so it might be a bit easier for me than most who purchase this "piece of work" book to correct the authors mistakes. I can only imagine the frustration a novice will have when they type in WORD FOR WORD the example program and receive nothing but error messages.

In all fairness I have not finished the book. In fact I gave up on his book half way though. I did go back and count the corrections I penciled in over his program errors, both in Syntax and Logic, to discover 16 blatant errors by page 132.

One thing ever programmer knows is that we test and retest our code before release into a production environment. I would expect the same of an author of technical manuals. Like I said, "Hope this author never works on my Database".

This book ideal for:
1) Those who do not know SQL at all.
2) Those who knows SQL little but want to learn more but quick and easy way.
3) Those who do want to know what SQL can do can not do.

This book is highly recommended. It teaches you quickly and easily. This book do not claim that they will make you mater in two days but they do teach you everything they can and quick and easy way. This book does provide some good references and covers all the quick points about SQL. I have really read this book in weekend and I learn myself from the point where this books ends.

Lives up to its promise: introduction ito MSSQL Server, no less, no more.

I moved from Oracle and was somehow confused by the "database", "filegroups" etc.

I've got my answers here (and from couple more titles, to be sure)

I neither had problems with instalation, nor with running the examples (save for one: the

chapter on cursor sports keyword DEALLOCATED, has to be - DEALLOCATE; had to check BOL on that)

The Transact-SQL examples could be better (I know PL/SQL, so I had some base here), but again

the book does not claim to teach T-SQL..

The code snippets sometime seem to be taken out of the contexts of bigger procedures, and

I had to figure out how to fit them in; the usp_FindFactorial example seems too complex for

the task it solves (it uses intermediate table to accumulate results

instead of calling itself recursively; should it then be a function?),

but my understanding is that the elegancy was sacrificed to cram in more techniques than requred.

My examples did run correctly, though

After I was through with the book, I had to buy an additional one on Transact-SQL

(IMHO: O'Reily's book Transact-SQL Programming did NOT live up to my expectattions

and the publisher's reputation; I used Sam's T-SQl in 21 days, and then Ken Henderson's book)

To sum up: if you are new to SQL server, and find yourself

somewhat overwhelmed by the Books-On-line style

(comes free with every MSSQL Server installation), get this book

NB: better download new installation from microsoft site; the one included with the book does not have latest security patches)

If you are looking for a book that will provide overview of SQL Server 2000 without diving into too many details - This is the book for you!
This book glances through all the main features of SQL Server 2000, providing a very good introduction to all of them. SQL Server 2000 is a very complex, feature rich product. This book does a wonderful job of explaining the various features with out going to too many details that 99% of the users will not need anyway.
I especially liked the sections about performance tuning, optimizations and automating administration tasks that provide easy to understand information about those advanced SQL Server features.
If you are a full time job SQL Server DBA, you will probably want a more in depth book. All other SQL Server users - Go get this book!

I am a certified system administrator and I never had the time to study SQL. Finally I decided to sit down and learn ,I ordered a few books trying to build a nice and gradual study course. The book I satrted with is the Weekend Crash Course. I am very happy to say that I found a book that explains basics with good examples thus giving me a smooth start...What I like about this book is that on one hand it doesn't intimidate you as a newbie to a system that is obviously huge and on the other hand it provides you with an adequete level of knowledge to feel that you have gained knowledge.

Highly recommended. The book goes easy on you,and it does not assume any previous knowledge on your part.It will not make you an accomplished DBA over a weekend, but I recommend it as a olid introduction.Material is well organized and presented, with a fair portion of typos and slips :)I did not encounter any installation problems reported from Colorado: no key was ever required (maybe they print special edition for Boulder, CO?). Nevertheless, I do recommend downloading trial version from Microsoft, as it contains the latest fixes (the book was published in 2001, after all).
I bought this book because it advertised that examples and code were on the included CD. Wiley (current publisher)has apparently removed the content without removing the promise of content in the book, on the cover, or in the advertising. I tried to contact Wiley and the author, but got no response from either. Lack of promised content makes this book useless as a weekend crash course.
