Murach's SQL Server 2008 for develoers : Bryan Syverson and Joel Murach
This new 700 plus page book by Bryan Syverson and Joel Murach is aimed at the developer who needs to get a handle on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 from basic to advanced topics. The book shows how to install and run SQL 2008 Express. It is filled example code and screens that help the developer to learn by doing.

The first eight chapters provide key concepts and show the reader how to design, code, and test using SQL. After that, more advanced topics are explored step by step. Easy to read syntax and examples support the discussion of each topic. I found this book to be better organized and easier to learn from than other SQL books.

The reader is introduced to relational concepts and then given examples and exercises that show the power of the OO approach. It becomes clear that SQL 2008 is more advanced than traditional SQL. It includes: XML, Blobs, stored procedures, triggers, functions, administration, security, and CLR development.

If you are want to learn SQL 2008 through a practical approach, this book is very useful. After completing this book you will be ready for professional SQL development assignments.
