Product Description

Amazon 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, choosing this book, Professional SQL Server 2000 Programming, could well simplify your selection process.

In addition to providing a thorough treatment of SQL Server 2000 development, Robert Vieira's extensive reference also devotes quite a lot of space to covering SQL in general and issues relating to database design. Included is a complete introduction to Transact-SQL and an excellent chapter on normalisation that will go a long way for many to de-mystify the mystery of an over-referenced but much misunderstood database design concept. There is also in-depth information on the new features of SQL Server 2000, including indexed views, user-defined functions and support of XML. Sadly, there is no accompanying CD, but source code for the book can be downloaded from the Wrox Web site.

While you don't need any knowledge of SQL Server or database administration to make the most of this book, you will need a reasonable understanding of programming fundamentals. That said, the author's down-to-earth style makes it possible for anyone with some programming background and the will to learn, to really get to grips with SQL Server 2000 development. If you are looking for a book that combines rich content with clear explanation, then look no further than this excellent title. --Peter Lunn --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

This book is a revised follow on from Professional SQL Server 7.0 Programming, to address the new features of this recent release. With a general understanding of programming principles, (eg familiarity with VB, C++, VB Script) Professional SQL Server 2000 Programming provides a comprehensive overview of the new areas of SQL Server, for programmers. There is an in-depth discussion of T-SQL, the query language of Microsoft SQL Server. From basic database design concepts a tutorial explains more advanced topics and specific areas including Stored Procedures and Advanced Queries. Advanced topics - performance tuning, security and a solid description of OLAP, which is built in with SQL Server, are then introduced. The new XML features are explored to provide an understanding of this important area. With over 1,500 pages this book covers the main topics to provide an in-depth understanding of concepts and procedures, so you can get the most out of SQL Server 2000. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you want to know about SQL Server - BUY THIS BOOK. I have read a few SQL Server books and NOTHING comes close to this book. The descriptions are clear, the examples precise. Page after page are littered with valuable, hard won, information. The authors has extensive knowledge of SQL Server and it shines though. A man who understands the subject matter and can explain it ... a rare thing in my experience. If you read one book about SQL Server, make it this one. Also, if you are using SQL Server 7, don't be put off, most of what is said applies to '7' and most differences between '7' and '2000' are clearly explained.

I have just got this book the other day, and for the price it is I can defiantly say it is well worth the money. I had never used SQL Server before and only used Access in the past, this is a perfect book for learning SQL Server 2000 - The first few chapters set the ground work and is a bit boring as your keen to get to the pratical parts but you need to do it and is worth reading so the rest makes sense. Very nice examples, easy to follow. Another great book from Wrox to add to my collection.

Format: Paperback
As an experienced C++/Java developer with limited database experience I found this book to be really useful. It was pitched at the right level for me. I was initialy a little put off by the 'Professional' tag, I assumed it would require some previous knowledge of SQL Server. Instead the 'professional' should be taken to mean 'Software professional' rather then database specialist.
It's pretty big, but remarkabley easy to read. Well written in a friendly in style without being patronising or dumbed-down.

This book is readable, informative and gives an excellent grounding in SQL Server 2000. This author knows his stuff and wants the reader to understand it too. His explanations are clear and easy to follow. He anticipates problems and questions with notes throughout the narrative.
I've found this book incredibly helpful and easy to follow.

I have read many technical books - hundreds of them! This is one of the best;definitely in the top five, sitting comfortably next to Steve C. McConnell. This book is clear and concise with many pertinent many examples.
Rather than attempting to preach 'perfect' methods, the author will advise his preferred method, along with other ways of achieving the same task, whilst explaining why he prefers to use one method over another.
Despite its naturally heavy technical content, I found this book to be very readable. It's quite possible to sit down in an armchair and read from cover to cover without touching a keyboard. The style is friendly, but not condescending.
Both the 'contents' section and the index are very well laid out. If only all technical books were created with such care and attention.

I got this book with a rudimentary knowledge of SQL Server and used it to study for Microsoft exam 70-229 (SQL Server). With this book I obtained a score of 823.
This book is much better than the MS Press books for the certification exam.
