Don't let SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) intimidate you. Knight's 24-Hour Trainer: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services is a unique lesson-based book that walks you through the essential parts of SSIS without all of the fluff. Each lesson is streamlined to teach a specific component of SSIS, helping you to focus on just what you need in order to succeed in your job. If you learn better by getting your hands on the product, this book provides you with a step-by-step lab for each lesson with a video to accompany it.

The authors guide you from the ground-up and make no assumption of previous knowledge of SSIS. The 49 featured lessons help you develop a strong foundation for this highly marketable skill. Additionally, you'll get useful tools like cheat sheets on the SSIS expression language and you'll learn when to use each task.

Each lesson has three major components: a description of how to use the given SSIS feature, a tutorial, and an instructor-led video. No matter your learning style, you'll glean new information from each lesson with this unique style of training. It's like having a one-on-one instructor in your office showing you SSIS. Learning SSIS has never been so simple.
