Comments about oreilly IBM Cognos 10 Report Studio Fundamentals:

I couldn't find a good solid basic tutorial on Cognos Report Studio by searching the Internet. I'm new to Cognos Report Studio but I've worked with many other reporting tools but found that there are nuances to Report Studio that other reporting tools don't have. Since my purchase, I have several times referred back to the tutorial for a refresher. I like the way it is separated into chunks of information. There were parts that I did not view like the installation of Report Studio as that was done for me but I'm sure others would need that information. The only thing I would like to see is a tutorial on a report that has vertical bands of info only - like an invoice for sales made in a certain timeframe. Most of the reports I now support present almost nothing but vertical bands of info. Other than that the product was great.
