Beginning SQL Server Programming (Book)

IT Training;May2004, p43
There are two ways to write programming or DBA books: you're either going to use lots of screen shots as your main instructional aid, or use them as the most important, but far from single, graphic element. R. Dewson, in his book "Beginning SQL Server Programming," adopts the latter approach, and the book is the better for it. The book is written with the novice in mind, taking readers through the building of a simple example to sophisticated database manipulation, such as stored procedures and triggers, and views.
