A good SQL Programming Reference Book Nov. 23 2009
By Sudheer K. Maharana - Published on
Format: Paperback
Professional Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Programming from Wrox is a well formatted programming reference book for medium to advanced SQL Developers. The chapters are laid out well with useful examples. Especially, I liked the chapters on XML Integration, Advanced Queries, Index structure and Transaction & Locks. I will suggest this book to anyone who is from other RDBMS background to get up and running with programming in SQL Server. However, I was looking for information in Service Broker in detail as this is one of the programming areas which scales SQL Server to different level. Chapters such as Replication, Performance Tuning, Data Warehousing and Reporting were not explained in great detail. However the book solves it's purpose to provide a general guideline on SQL Server 2008 programming.

I will recommend this book for other SQL Server professionals who want to understand the new programming features in SQL Server 2008 and also keep this book as reference in their SQL Server library

Covers the topics excellently. Robert Vieira is a great author - He makes things easy to understand . i have already read the Beginners version of this book and I purchased this one because I really liked the way he teaches in the previous book.

This book is a must it is an professional book that takes you further than most. I read it cover to cover along with the first book and I learned things I wish I had known all along. If you want to learn by doing and want to have the examples work and explained this is the book. Helpful and easy to read plus being well connected is online and kept up to date. I would recomend this book for anyone library collection and reference.

What is going on with you guys? If the table-of-contents says there are 25 chapters, then the physical book better have TWENTY-FIVE chapters!!!!!

It is one of my favorite reference books July 7 2013

Format: Paperback
This book has helped me to remember or re-learn the basic details for SSMS 2008. I find myself going back to it daily before I even check a programmer's blog for the basics on some topic I don't remember the 'exact' syntax or usage. The book is well written so that you can read it cover to cover. I recommend it if you already familiar with SQL as a user, but now you need to act more like a DBA.
