A good overview


This course is a good general overview of the various components of SQL Server Analysis Services and Reporting Services. It was a good opportunity to play with the tools in a \'safe\' learning environment with a knowledgeable instructor to bounce questions off. Was it an in-depth technical course? No. But has it given me a good place to start? Yes. Not recommended for people who are already kicking goals developing cubes etc., but good for someone just starting out.

I recommend this course.
