Hi, can you please recommend a few resources/books/training courses in order to get a working knowledge of the basic/most commonly used MS SQL features? Like a crash course that can get me up to speed in a month of intensive reading?

Thank you

Hi,
A few books you might enjoy:

http://techbus.safaribooksonline.com/book/databases/microsoft-sql-server/9780470179543

Something about just the SQL language:

This online SQL course is a little superficial but it will get you going:

The W3C introductory course is good too:

And as far as reporting services is concerned, here is a nice one:

This one is nice too:

and for specifics there is always the Microsoft tutorials page for SSRS 2008:
