SQL entry-level reference books

By utken ·
Hi. My work place is going to implement a brand new SQL web server. Being a newby in this area, I would like some recommendations to some good SQL reference books for beginners. I'll mainly be in charge of maintaining the server and not so much on programming, if that would help.
Thanks in advance.

SQL for dummies. starting on Page 309 will address the web server. Amazon sells it for $17-$18. Good luck to you.

When you install the MS SQL server it also gives you the option to install the MS SQL books. These books are a good source of information and provide information for all levels of users. As a new user you should be able to learn the basic configuration, maitenance and configuration of the server. Make sure that during installation of the server you install the online books. These become accessible as START>MS SQL SERVER>ONLINE BOOKS.

The HELP is also a good source of information. You can print these on papers for reference. Microsoft also provides printed books for MS SQL Server but experience shows that the online books are the best source of information and most of all they are always updated and containt the latest information. You can also use refer to the link http://www.microsoft.com/sql/default.asp for more help in micosoft sql server. Also visit the microsoft press site at http://www.microsoft.com/mspress/books/4519.asp

I agree with the suggestion on using the SQL Server Books Online. It is invaluable!

I also recommend the Sybex MCSE: SQL Server? 2000 Administration Study Guide. Yes, it is a book to help you study for the certification, but it is decent on SQL Server administration.
