Review by Will Ashley

As someone who doesn't know too much database stuff (just SP's and light administration things), I thought this book was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction and giving me a good overview of some of the new features of SQL Server 2005. I would not recommend this book to a SQL expert, as you probably know most of what is covered already. I like the way he has this book organized, it makes it easy to find the section you are dealing with. This book will be on my reference shelf if I need to figure out something in SQL Server 2005.

What a mess 15 Mar. 2006
By Michael Baumann - Published on
Format: Paperback
OK, the structure of this book is not bad, the chapters covered overall appeared to make for a good read. I further have to admit I have not worked through the whole book yet, but who prove-read this book? There are so many errors in there it is no fun whatsoever to work with the code examples. And if an example has no error it has inconsistencies like projects being named differently in two code blocks/screenshots.

I definately do NOT recommend this book, especially not for experienced SQL Developers as the Author rambles the first 80 or so pages on how to use Select, Insert and Update statements with putting only little weigth on the T-SQL enhancements of SQL Server 2005.
