Hi guys,

I've been asked by the boss to find some SQL (specifically MSSQL) training material (books, courses etc) in order to upskill my knowledge. I know the basics enough so am looking for coverage of Indexes, constraints, stored procedures, functions, management tools, joins etc etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

Search the MSDN blogs - they have a few links to free MS SQL training and books. I've downloaded a few, in PDF format.

Thanks for the advice. Just to add if I have to pay I get reimbursed, so no biggy :)

Have you considered online video training like:

Microsoft has a lot of SQL Server related video content on Channel9 too:

To add to what Ragnor has said, can also look at www.cbtnuggets.com , they have all manner of useful training videos. And I believe it's only a few hundred a year...

We have a few accounts at work and it's actually not too bad
