Reporting Services in simple terms March 18 2009
By Eldred Rivera - Published on
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.

Accessible for beginners, but also enough detail for pros July 15 2012
By T. Huguelet - Published on
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.

Very Good but... April 11 2010
By A. Bryant - Published on
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.
SSRS 2008 Nov. 15 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is fairly good but there are disconnects in the examples between the things written in the book and what is on the CD. However, with that said, it is an excellent beginner book for SQL Server Reporting Services, which is a part of Business Intelligence Developer Studio (BIDS). SSRS is a GUI approach to managing report writing, but it does a great job and a complex one. You do need to already know something about writing Transact SQL which is Microsoft's version of SQL coding (Script). This book is used in the SSRS 2008 class at Collin College in Plano, Texas (Collin County). See this URL for more information on Collin College's .NET and SQL Server courses: [ ... ]
Detailed, very good Step by Step book. May 22 2014
By NY Dude - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was great. The steps are very clear. It was written for both beginner and previous SSRS users. The book builds your skill level at a good pace.

A bit of warning is that it was specially written for SQL Server 2008. NOT SQL Serve 2008 R2. There are features in 2008 R2 that do not exist in 2008 and some menus were completely redesigned. If you have 2008 R2, you can still use this book and follow the exercises, but there will be a handful of places where you will see a screenshot in the book, however, the corresponding menu in R2 looks different.
