Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Learn by doing. It works. It's the idea behind Microsoft's Step-by-Step tutorials. And it's especially appropriate for rich, complex subjects -- like SQL Server 2005 database design and development.

This isn't just "point here, click there" (though the authors certainly help you set up and navigate your SQL Server development environment). Using realistic sample files, you'll walk through database development, hands-on -- and brains-on. (For instance, you don't just learn how to create database objects; you learn best practices for gathering and understanding the business requirements they're based on.)

Once you've designed your database, you'll master the essentials of querying and modifying data: selecting it; retrieving it via programmable objects; creating views; and performing inserts, updates, and deletes. By the time you're done, you'll know how to get real value out of SQL Server 2005 -- which is, after all, why you bought it. Bill Camarda, from the October 2006 Read Only
