4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and comprehensive reference December 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
I found the book to be a worthy addition to the long line of high quality Wrox publications. First of all, it is comprehensive. The authors spend a lot of time covering as many aspects of 2012 Reporting Services as they can, beginning with installation and setup all the way through integration with custom application development. In addition, it's very well written and illustrated. While the writing style isn't compelling (is that even possible in a technical reference manual?), I found it to be very lucid and approachable. Screenshots were clear and complete, sequential items were numbered and emphasized, and call-outs were insightful and appropriate. Finally, the book is organized as a set of topical references with good cross-referencing, making it easy to dive into tangential details related to whichever section or topic you were primarily focused on.

The only thing that keeps the review from being a full five stars for me is, oddly enough, the appendices. Considering that the core content of the book was 2012 Reporting Services, the contents of the appendices seemed pretty unrelated, especially the TSQL reference. Regardless, I'm very glad my company has a copy of this book in our reference library!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great possibilities but no data for examples. November 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My first big problem with this book is the examples used in the text are based off a database that you can't properly download. It's a specific version of the Advertureworks file that is used and when you go to the book site the file downloaded is not an mdf file and can't be created into a database. Therefore you need to write you own queries and try to replicate the best you can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Info from novice to expert August 15, 2013
Format:Paperback
I am new to reporting, and as a beginner, I found this book useful to learn it from scratch to new features in 2012. Being a novice I was mostly interested to learn report layout, formatting & designing. The book however covers reporting with Analysis services, has samples of MDX code and Cube, introduces to Power pivot & Power view. Enjoyed reading this book and need to dive deep-in to understand in more detail. I would definitely recommend this book as all in one package. It starts from basis and covers all the components in SSRS & beyond. Though I did not get a chance to have a hands on experience with MDX or Power pivots, I would definitely use this as a reference in future if need be.
