Book Excerpt and Review: Hitchhiker's Guide to Visual Studio and SQL Server

| by Jonathan Allen Follow 127 Followers on Aug 27, 2007. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |

With SQL Server 2000's hitting its end of life date next April, many shops that have been delaying the upgrade to SQL Server 2005 need to start looking at it seriously. This is why we have chosen to review the seventh edition of William Vaughn's Hitchhiker's Guide to Visual Studio and SQL Server. Vaughn having written 12 books on SQL Server during his 14 year tenure at Microsoft and the years since then, he has the kind of historical knowledge that few writers on the topic posses.

In addition to the review, we have the privilege of offering a sample chapter to help you make your own decision. As always, comments from others who have already read the book are welcome.
