    Question Need book references about SQL Server

    Hi,

    I'm going to start a project that will probably use SQL Server, unfortunately I haven't used it before. I'm familiar with mysql and postgresql and of course with sql, so mainly I'm wondering if somebody here can suggest me a couple of books to learn how to use it.

    Thanks in advance.

    My recommendations would be:

    The Guru's Guide to Transact-SQL
    and
    The Guru's Guide to SQL Server Stored Procedures, XML and HTML

    Both are by Ken Henderson and are good references...

    The "Inside SQL Server version X" series are fantastic books.

    Shoot, you could also just go to "Books Online" which comes with the SQL Server 2000 installation.

    For Transact SQL, I like "Transact SQL in 21 Days" Sams Publishing.
