SQL Server 2005 will increase your programming options, productivity, analysis, and database management. If you have some basic knowledge of relational databases and want to start a career as a developer using SQL Server, then this book is your ideal first step. It explains the core jobs and roles for developing a database in both SQL Server 2000 and 2005.

This book features practical steps to help you overcome issues youre likely to encounter. You'll learn to use SQL for querying, inserting, updating, and deleting data. You'll also learn how to back up and restore databases for basic administration in SQL Server. Further, you'll cover how to build a complete database, from the fundamentals of relational database design to table and index creation.

Additionally, you'll start to program in T-SQL, SQL Servers implementation (and extension) of the SQL programming language, and you'll come away with effective programming techniques using stored procedures and triggers.
