I am a SQL Server database administrator, and I have worked with SQL Server for more than 15 years. Many years ago, I worked with DTS (Data Transformation Services) in SQL 2000, and I have worked briefly with SSIS (SQL Server Integration Services) 2008 R2. I purchased this book because I recognized some of the authors' names, and I had hoped the book would quickly bring me up-to-speed with SSIS 2012. However, I am disappointed with the book.

Unfortunately, the chapter layout did not work well for me. The first seven chapters (i.e., the first 231 pages) contain lots of "stub" code, but I don't recall any end-to-end examples. Chapter 8 (aptly named, "Creating an End-to-End Package") is the first complete tutorial for creating a useful package. However, the entire book is littered with typos. (No, I am not exaggerating here.) A tutorial object will be called one thing when you are asked to create it or rename it, and a later screenshot will display the same object with a different name, or a later reference on the next page will use a different name. And, subtle steps in the examples are skipped. Some of the book's content is out of order. For example, SSIS catalog logging is discussed on page 582, which is 166 pages before the creation of an SSIS catalog. You cannot work through this book from beginning to end. You have to use the index to hop around.

Virtually all of the screenshots are tiny. Often, a screenshot is roughly only 2 inches by 2 inches in size, and two screenshots are often placed side by side on the same page. I used a magnifying glass many times to decipher the screenshots, although I have "20 20" corrected vision. Fortunately, the print quality is good enough for a magnifying glass to work.

After reading this book I was disappointed. Too many errors in the book. At first I thought I would keep track of them then post them on the site to help others. But it got so bad that I just stopped. I think they just pushed this out to be one of the first. The problem with that is next time many people will not buy their book. I was greatly disappointed with this release. Too many important things left out, and too much talking detail.

This book explains each SSIS tools in detail with plenty of code samples which help to jump-start for newbies. Initially, it starts with slow pace but covers more advanced topics in later chapters such as "Accessing Heterogeneous Data", "SSIS Extension and Administration", "Integration with WMI and External Applications" etc. It provides the real practical experience while working with programmatic examples. I would recommend this as a great reference book even for expert SSIS developers.

The book contains too many errors, typos, bad screenshots, and verbiage that does not match the actual product. It also skips around during exercises and it's difficult to actually follow along, which is how most of us learn. I'm getting a headache from it and I'm only on chapter 6. I don't think I've learned anything at all. I seriously hate this book.

To maintain continuity of the lessons the sample database can be downloaded from Wrox website. This is very helpful and a time saver because you do not need to find the correct version of the database to match the book. I also wish that I had this kind of caliber of a book when I first started with SQL 2000. This book has it all. It shows you all the necessary entry points and pitfalls that you will encounter during the process. The steps in the lessons are clear and match SQL 2012 UI accurately. It is not like working with some books that the version that the book was based on, was not the production version. This has been a time saver. Overall this book is priceless.
