4.0 out of 5 stars Reporting Services in simple terms March 18 2009
By Eldred Rivera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Stacia covered both native and SharePoint installation for Reporting Services. This is very helpful for SharePoint sites without a SharePoint administrator or database administrator. She progresses by showing report deployments in both native and SharePoint mode.

The release of Report Builder 2.0 is a significant improvement in Reporting Services. Stacia covers in detail how to install and use it as an authoring tool. In Part II, the full potential of report designer is shown in detail. Choosing between using report builder against report designer will be an easy decision.

Analysis services is an underutilized component of SQL Server. By showing how a reporting services takes advantage of analysis services, it will encourage you to explore analysis services further. Charts, charts and more charts, easy, fast and very useful.

The book discusses report models, managing report server, managing security, a must read for administrators.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible for beginners, but also enough detail for pros July 15 2012
By T. Huguelet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've used and recommended this book in my teaching and consulting since it came out. In my opinion Stacia strikes the perfect balance between conceptual and technical discussion, without losing new SSRS developers, or boring people with some exposure to SSRS.

One thing to keep in mind is that this book was written for SQL 2008, and many organizations are using SQL 2008 R2. It's still an excellent introduction and the core techniques are still 100% applicable. This book does not cover Report Builder 3.0 or some of the new visualizations that became available when SQL 2008 R2 was released. (Because they didn't exist when the book was written).

If you're looking for an accessible entry to SSRS Report development, but also want something that has enough "meat" to continue to be used as a reference after the fact, this is the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good but... April 11 2010
By A. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is very well organized and the lessons are detailed, beyond just the basics. It should serve as a good reference as I start to develop reports on my own. The one drawback is that the sample databases which should be downloaded from CodePlex do not exist. These would have been very beneficial.
4.0 out of 5 stars Used this for a class I was teaching on the subject. July 9 2013
By B. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very easy to read and clear examples. Worked perfectly for me. Had to add sentence because the "big brother" at Google doesn't believe in short positive reviews....or....the NSA pays them by the word for spying on their users.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to get up to speed on SSRS June 7 2013
