It has been awhile since I programmed with databases, so I was looking for a book to help me both refresh and advance my skill set. James Huddleston¿s ¿Beginning C# 2005 Databases, From Novice to Professional¿ is such a book. Having some former experience with DBs, the first 9 chapters are both a quick read and refresher. The ¿How It Works¿ were useful and very clear. The later chapters, especially 13 'Exceptions', 15 'Events', and 17 'XML' in relation to C#, were helpful. The last chapter offers a look into the future with LINQ. I would like to thank Mr. Huddleston for writing this book.

Many 'Novice' book's often gloss over the setup needed to accomplish the learning. This text took very detailed explanations and illustrations to insure the beginner could actually perform the exercises. Great Work!!! Recommend for anyone needing to explore Database programming..

I got this book a few weeks ago. I try to jump start my leaning process of Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005. In fact, this book is a really good one. This book begins with step-by-step how to set up C# programming and database environment. I like this installation guide since I want to experiment with the exercises in this book and I want to do it right the first time. This book covers fundamental concepts of databases and related data access ADO.Net technology. The author explains very well the following concepts, connections, commands, data readers, data adapters, and data sets, etc. The diagrams in the book really help to understand the relationship between the concepts mentioned above. In addition, the author also includes topics such as transaction, xml, working with text and binary data, and LINQ. I do think the author should include the topic of CLR integration with SQL Server 2005. CLR integration allows you to create database objects including stored procedures, triggers, user-defined functions, UDTs, and aggregates, in ANY .Net languages. CLR provides much more power and flexibility than T-SQL. In addition, CLR integration has other great benefits too. Bottom line. It is a very good introductory book about ADO.Net, SQL, and C#. It is a good reference book for experienced professionals.
