Which websites, books etc. can you recommend me to improve my basic knowledge in Microsoft Business Intelligence 2008, SSAS, SSIS and SSRS?

Please remember that I'm a newbie in technical BI tool.

If possible, it would be great to retrieve any material for task work that would be similiar as doing lab task at university.

The book "The Data Warehouse Toolkit" by Kimball is a must for any fledging BI developer, IMO.

I'd say less as an initial starting point but more as an indispensable resource, there are some great blogs out there:

SSIS Team Blog


The Microsoft Channel 9 site is a great place to start.
