4.0 out of 5 stars Helped out a C# Developer greatly Aug. 2 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book arrived on a timely manner in great condition. Its actually a great reference book for those at any level exploring reporting services. I learned a lot of valuable information in this book as a C# developer that i could not find online. If you are planning on working even a small portion of the time with SSRS i highly recommend this book.

Recently, I started a new job that did a lot of SSRS reporting. I bought this book as a reference manual. It is laid out in such a way that I can quickly find what I need to know. I was borrowing a copy from the library until I got my own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and comprehensive reference Dec 6 2012
By rbentley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found the book to be a worthy addition to the long line of high quality Wrox publications. First of all, it is comprehensive. The authors spend a lot of time covering as many aspects of 2012 Reporting Services as they can, beginning with installation and setup all the way through integration with custom application development. In addition, it's very well written and illustrated. While the writing style isn't compelling (is that even possible in a technical reference manual?), I found it to be very lucid and approachable. Screenshots were clear and complete, sequential items were numbered and emphasized, and call-outs were insightful and appropriate. Finally, the book is organized as a set of topical references with good cross-referencing, making it easy to dive into tangential details related to whichever section or topic you were primarily focused on.

The only thing that keeps the review from being a full five stars for me is, oddly enough, the appendices. Considering that the core content of the book was 2012 Reporting Services, the contents of the appendices seemed pretty unrelated, especially the TSQL reference. Regardless, I'm very glad my company has a copy of this book in our reference library!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great possibilities but no data for examples. Nov. 3 2013
By Paul A. Sparrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My first big problem with this book is the examples used in the text are based off a database that you can't properly download. It's a specific version of the Advertureworks file that is used and when you go to the book site the file downloaded is not an mdf file and can't be created into a database. Therefore you need to write you own queries and try to replicate the best you can.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written, poorly executed, not good for a beginner to SSRS. July 11 2014
By ad_crumenam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an abysmal disappointment. It does not explain concepts thoroughly in some instances, and in others it goes way too deep into the weeds when you're just trying to wrap your head around simple concepts. It is not a good book for a beginner (like I am) and the exercises are very hard to follow. The language in the book does not even match the product and the screenshots are very poor, making it next to impossible to successfully complete exercises unless you already know how the product works...in which case, what do you need the book for?

This book is a disappointment; Wrox is usually my go-to company to learn a new product but I am disappointed with this book. I'm only a quarter of the way through it and I'm ready to use it as a doorstop instead. Save your money.
5.0 out of 5 stars Useful for Professionals from SQL Server to SharePoint Sept. 18 2012
By Guillermo Bas - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a professional of SharePoint related products and developments, and this book has been really useful in order to not only introduce me in Reporting Services for SQL Server 2012, but also give me a complete view of the product and its capabilites. I found also that I could go deep dive in most of Reporting Services features. I think it was a great purchase for professionals like me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Info from novice to expert Aug. 15 2013
By SQL Learner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am new to reporting, and as a beginner, I found this book useful to learn it from scratch to new features in 2012. Being a novice I was mostly interested to learn report layout, formatting & designing. The book however covers reporting with Analysis services, has samples of MDX code and Cube, introduces to Power pivot & Power view. Enjoyed reading this book and need to dive deep-in to understand in more detail. I would definitely recommend this book as all in one package. It starts from basis and covers all the components in SSRS & beyond. Though I did not get a chance to have a hands on experience with MDX or Power pivots, I would definitely use this as a reference in future if need be.
