By T Anderson VINE VOICE on March 22, 2012
Format: Paperback
Over the years I have been on quite a few projects and there have been very few if any that did not require some type of reporting. For a while that meant Crystal Reports, but when SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) hit the scene, Crystal Reports began to fade on Microsoft projects. That was especially true if I had my way. I was the first person to champion SSRS in state projects in Pennsylvania. That was quite a battle but well worth it!

SSRS is one of the best solutions to come out of Microsoft. I don't say that lightly. I have plenty of complaints about different Microsoft products, but none about SSRS. The extensibility model built into the architecture makes the product completely customizable through extension.

This book introduces the SSRS architecture, the report manager, the basics of databases and database queries, but every topic introduced supports the report builder role. This book is all about the report builder. The chapters are listed below.

Part I: Getting Started
Chapter 1. Let's Start at the Very Beginning
Chapter 2. Putting the Pieces in Place: Installing Reporting Services

Part II: Report Authoring
Chapter 3. DB 101: Database Basics
Chapter 4. A Visit to Emerald City: The Report Wizard
Chapter 5. Removing the Training Wheels: Building Basic Reports
Chapter 6. Graphic Expression: Using Charts, Images, and Gauges
Chapter 7. Geography Lesson: Using Maps and Spatial Data Types
Chapter 8. Kicking It Up a Notch: Intermediate Reporting
Chapter 9. Beyond Wow: Advanced Reporting

Part III: Reporting Serving
Chapter 10. How Did We Ever Manage Without You--The Report Manager
Chapter 11. Delivering the Goods: Report Delivery
Chapter 12.

This is a fantastic resource on Reporting Services. It is very comprehensive, and the chapters and subsections are well thought out and make for a very smooth progression through the material. It provides a great selection of real world examples and best practices concerning a huge variety of the components of Reporting Services. A must buy for someone looking to learn or someone wanting very strong reference material close by.

This book is outstanding. Very professionally written, with deep knowledge of the subject, with lots of detailed examples for both SSMS and ReportBuilder, and no mistakes found while implementing examples- what else could you wish if need to get on the subject quickly?
I had already the book for SSRS 2005 from the known authors, but this one beats it both hands down for its clear presentation and directions.
Nothing important for me is omitted. Deservingly - 5 stars.

I am not sure why there are negative reviews. I deal with many technical manuals, and would love for them to follow this type of layout. This book does not fill your head with a bunch of pointless details. The layout is to teach you the concept and then give you an excercise. It is a total hands on approach. This book will get you up and running within a couple of weeks. I built an interactive/drilldown Excecutive Dashboard using this book.

One of my favorite technical books.
The style is engaging and conversational. Larson provides the right mix of background and practical detail. The screenshots are perfect and the step-by-step exercises walk you through novice to advanced at what seems to be the right pace.
I just wish that I'd written it.

after buying another book and finding it a huge dissapointment I found this one. I sent a couple of questions to the Author and he responded with useful answers about the book in a matter of 10 minutes. If you like hands on examples this book provides them.

In about a week the book has allowed me to become a proficient SQL Reporting Services report designer (having started with no SQL Reporting Service experience at all). I would recommend it for anyone from beginner to advanced. It's amazing the relative low cost of being educated with the help of excellent reading material.

This was a great hands-on book. It literally walks you through all of the steps for deploying Reporting Services, from installation, to configuration, to using all of the various features of the product.
