    A good resource for T-SQL commands

    SQL developers experienced with non-Oracle databases or sqlserver developers who are looking for a good reference manual should definitely pick up a copy of this book. Inexperienced SQL developers will probably get more out of other excellent book T-SQL. This book begins exactly the way experienced developers would expect-it starts out at a running pace. The book takes the next hundred-or-so pages just discussing T-sql basics to extremes. Where this book excels is in its examples. Each and every SQL example is clearly illustrated with many clear and relevant examples. The author then begins into a discussion of advanced T-SQL techniques, which includes a discussion of cursors, built-in functions, and records. This discussion naturally leads into advanced T-SQL techniques including transactions, and various built-in T-SQL code. The author discusses use and retrieval of data in this format. I would highly recommend this book to experienced and beginner or even Oracle developers who want to sharpen their T-SQL skills or who are looking for a really good T-SQL reference. This is a must-have book for anyone serious about theirT-SQL development work.
