How to use Nested Query in From Clause with SQLCE?

I have been looking at many web posting stating that "Nested Query in FROM clause" works with SQL Compact Edition 3.5 SP1.  I have tried many selects but continue to get
Major Error 0x80040E14, Minor Error 25501
> select volser from (select * from tif)
There was an error parsing the query. [ Token line number = 2,Token line offset = 1,Token in error = ) ]
This query is as simple as I can make it - display one field from a subquery that selects all rows from a table it exist in.
The status line on SSMS recognizes and states that I have SQL CE 3.5.5692.0 installed.
Any suggestions?
select volser from (select * from tif)

please try to give the subquery an alias name:
select volser from (select * from tif) sq
