I have been shuffled around at work. Can anyone recommend a quick book/site to get me up to speed on SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services.

Additionally; I have the following books available, a quick rating would be handy.

Professional SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services
by Paul Turley, Todd Bryant, James Counihan and Dave DuVarney

SQL Server 2005 Bible
by Paul Nielsen

Mastering SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services Infrastructure Design
by Joseph L. Jorden


+2  A: 

I would recommend Brian Larson's Reporting Services 2005 book (or pre-order the 2008 version), provided that you like learning from step-by-step walkthroughs. This text also contains a lot of basic SQL refreshers, which may or may not be helpful depending on your background. If you are looking for more of a reference text, this is probably not for you.

I read

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services - Essential Skills for Database Professionals
By Brian Larson

when I needed to learn SSRS quickly. I found it got me up to speed quickly, although I did need to skip over some of the more tedious things.

Edit: theprise beat me too it, but take mine as an additional recommendation.

I found "Microsoft Reporting Services In Action" by Teo Lachev to be pretty good. We also have Wrox "SQL Server Reporting Services" which I didn't like as much.

may i ask what specifically did you not like about in the Wrox SSRS book?
