   Nice Quick Reference
I have pinned it for a few weeks on my office wall. I use it during those moments when my brain refuses to work. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this is a great quick reminder. It replaced a dozen or so random HINTS that I had printed. It is laminated so that it will stay nice through all those late days and long nights.
   handy reference
Very useful quick reference for sql users. I am also glad that it has a coating so that it repels coffee spills.
   Four Stars
Handy reference since help screen is not usually available, includes sytnax variations and different SQL types.
   not a friendly guide to assist with sql queries.
After receiving it, however, and then logging into Microsoft SSMS at work and starting to query the DB, I opened my new handy SQL - laminated guide and realized that it is not VERY HELPFUL if you are just getting familiar with running queries. The color coding and lamination of the guide seems like a good idea, but as others have stated, this may be good for other SQL related activities, but is not for queries. I will try to find something else and return. Disappointed.
   Tiny print, Not a lot of info on querying
Here there is a lot of information, but it is trying to figure out what it is telling you is a different story. Its a paper bifold 4 pages full of statements, but its contents are minimal to no context other than the header, its not easy to decipher. The font is super tiny and is very difficult to read.
   Partially delaminated
Came partially do you laminated, however it was useful for what it was. Probably would have returned it if I didn 't have to study it.
   nice summary
This is a nice high-level summary, but did not provide the information that I was looking for. Good basic information.
   Tiny print and more focused on Database admin than query language
It is a beautiful guide. It contains a lot of information about the database side of things. I wish it had more focus on queries. There is a lot of information packed into each page, which results in a very small print.
   Format more optum for DDL users
For some reason, the author decided to present the DDL as quick... but perhaps that's the right approach for a DBA primary ref. But, most users of this guide will never use DDL. Then they will use the back page only. Programmers will be able to flip from the front side for select statements and clauses back to the suboptimal data type, also for some reasons why clauses are defined before the main statement... the exact opposite of the standard top approach... makes no sense to me.
   Virtually useless.
Almost invariably, useless. Aside from the little flaws, namely obvious glaring print broken into two or three columns per page gee, what are they thinking? I have to add that information is virtually useless half of it if you don 't know it, or else use this guide so called : Ignorantly, using the most silly color arrangement I could think of,Other than that it is fine.
