Review:

As a comprehensive reference to the product, SQL Server 7: The Complete Reference is one book you can judge by its title. It does double duty as both an introduction to the new features of release 7 and an overall presentation of the product.

This book opens with a description of the big picture of SQL Server 7, covering all of the basic architectural features and new enhancements with perspective on their importance. The author discusses the improved capacity of SQL Server, Microsoft Management Console, and enhancements to both the tools and the language, as well as NT security features.

The second part of this book explains how to install and upgrade SQL Server, and part 3 covers the critical area of administration. This section explains the different installation options and does a good job of detailing particular files and aiding you in a wise upgrade strategy. There is much that is new about SQL Server's administration features, and it's all adequately addressed.

Parts 4 and 5 of this guide cover Transact-SQL-Microsoft's flavor of SQL--and provide reference to the language, the product's system tables, and stored procedures. This clear and consistent section of the book is the one that you'll turn to again and again. If you're looking for a single book that covers SQL Server 7, this is a wise choice. --Stephen Plain
