Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


You could always read the what's new sections in the BOL. As for a book, have you looked at Microsoft's free book? A hard copy is available too, if you prefer. The book is not a coursebook but more general an approach. As per introduction:

Who Should Not Read This Book

As mentioned earlier, the purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a high-level preview of the capabilities and features associated with SQL Server 2012. This book is not intended to be a step- by-step comprehensive guide.

  • Books online is enough. I seriously wonder why people go around asking for books and third party stuff and never bother to start with the obvious - the documentation. – TomTom Jul 4 '13 at 7:40
