"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on what you want to know and your current skill level with SQL Server and t-sql. There are many good books available for SQL Server 2000 - general, administration, security, writing t-sql, and sql XML.
