Need reporting tools experience

What are good database reporting tools to learn about?

I see SSIS always mentioned on job requirements. I had a tiny bit of experience with Crystal Reports, but I will not be spending any money to purchase a dev. environent. Instead, I am using my sebatical to brush up on technologies that would make me more "scalable" LOL

Please suggest the tools in the order of priority I shouild give them...

Cheers,

Well, SSIS is not a Reporting Tool.. It is an integration tool something similar to Informatica that comes with SQL server.. Were you referring to SSRS (SQL server Reporting services)?

any case, i don't think you can download and install SSRS  separately, You will need to install SQL Server 2008 Express edition and during the installation you can select to install Reporting services.. There's also a trial version of standard Edition which you can download and use for 6 months..
