Summary

SQL Server 2005 for Developers by Bryan Syverson and Joel Murach is a comprehensive tutorial that properly introduces beginner developers or programmers new to SQL Server 2005 to the gamut of language, management and concepts surrounding the SQL Server 2005 database. The book is specifically targeted to developers who wish to be able to master SQL Server 2004, and after reading the book most developers should have a grasp of just about every concept and feature required to work with SQL Server, including those new to this version (such as Xml data types and CLR integration). Some (albiet more obscure) concepts and features are left out entirely (like cryptography functions), but that does nothing to adversely affect the length of the book (it weighs in at nearly 700 pages).

The tone of the book and its organization and paired page layout are very conducive to learning at any level, and the topics covered are varied enough to ensure a well-rounded learning experience, regardless of the reader's development background.
