You have to know that NVARCHAR is two bytes, one of which identifies (for lack of a better term) the language being used. For the U.S. and many English speaking countries, that "language byte" is "00". The way to see it is to convert it to varbinary and realize that each character for NVARCHAR is made up of two bytes each. You also have to know the "ASCII" table (AsciiTable.com) so that you understand that the capital letter "A" is numerically a decimal value of "65" and understand that you need to convert (or look it up at the AsciiTable.com site) that to hexadecimal "41" to find the "A's" in the string of bytes.
