I like this book because it focusses on SQL Server express. I like the sections specific to sql server express like setup and deployment and recommend this for those who use sql server express with VB.
SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (SSE) is MSDE brought up to date using SQL Server 2005 as the code base rather than SQL Server 2000. Perhaps the most important feature added is the graphical user interface that allows the creation of tables, defining relationships between tables and other simple database applications.
The one point that I would have liked to see in this book is more information, perhaps even a chapter on SQL. Especially in the section on migrating from the Jet database in Access to SSE some comments on the differences between the two SQL's would be very helpful.
For instance, in Access SQL (Jet Engine) you can have JOINs in UPDATE and DELETE statements. In T-SQL you can't. In T-SQL you can have a subquery in the SET clause of UPDATE statements, in the Jet engine you cannot. Finding all these differences is difficult. I'd like to see them in the migrating chapter.
Still, this book is intended for the beginner who is going to use Microsoft's GUI approach for everything, and not SQL. For that purpose it is excellent.
