Books on SSRS 2008R2 - emphasis on reporting

  • Dear all

    This is very open-ended I'm afraid so apologies if it breaks question guidelines.

    However, as I am very new to SSRS 2008R2, which if any books would you recommend as a good guide to help get started? In particular, looking at reporting itself, building dashboards etc. I'm doing OKish but think a more systematic appraoch is probably better in the long-run.

    Any thoughts, advice, appreciated. Thanks.

  • If you're brand new to SSRS, Brian Larson's book is pretty good. Wordy, but he walks you through pretty much every step. His book covers 2008 (not R2, which introduced maps etc). Since not much changed between 2008R2 and 2012, you might be able to use the 2012 book. (Except watch out for some of the Windowing functions, if he covers them).

  • You can also follow the STAIRWAYS link available in this site only....

    You can learn many new things from there other than reporting services 🙂
