Free eBook: SQL Server Management Studio Tips and Tricks

If you haven’t already grabbed a copy, take a look at our free SQL Server Management Studio Tips and Tricks eBook.

I’ve worked with SQL Server for decades and have compiled this list of tips and tricks over that time. This eBook is a compilation of a series of blog posts that I have either made or are scheduled to be made as part of my Thursday “Shortcut” series, for shortcuts that apply to SSMS.

There are a lot of tips and tricks. It’s now not far from 200 pages.

We intend to keep enhancing and upgrading this book.
