Hi, what would you recommend as the best book for someone *new* to SQL and SQL Server (specifically 2005, Developer version)?


Hi Strangeloop,

That really all depends what you plan on doing with SQL. Are you an IT Amin/Engineer or are you a programmer, if coding...what langauge?


I recommend the microsoft press "step by step" books


Try the book for "sql server secret diary" for developers. it contains simple solved solutions with examples

For the beginners ,Beginning SQL Server 2005 Express for deverlopers by Robin Dewson ISBN 9781590597200

hi Vetrij,

This is the sql server book you mean

SQL Server secret diary (ISBN 1451539665 )
