Default Where is the best place to start with MS SQL

I have been programming in VBA for Access 2007 for a year now and have created many database applications. Now I want to start using VB.NET and C# to continue developing database apps.

I purchased Access 2007 VBA Programmer to Programmer book to learn VBA and that book was excellent. It was easy to follow and gets right to the point and gives you what you need with code examples that you can actually use to make your applications work, not just practice code but code you can use to get the application to work. GREAT BOOK!

I'm looking for a great book that can help me understand SQL enough to get started use it for my applications. I don't want to be an expert in SQL right now I just want to know enough to use it correctly and do minor database manipulation and maintenance.

Any Suggestions?

Default Beginning SQL with .NET

I myself have traveled down this path. I would suggest picking up a really basic SQL reference book (Sorry WROX but I'm going to say get SQL: A Beginner's Guide 3/E ISBN-13: 9780071548649 and then get WROX's Beginning C# 2008 there is an excellent introduction to LINQ which is the standard for working with database's its excellent. No matter what type of data your trying to connect to (SQL Server, Access, OLDB, XML, etc..), you can use LINQ. I hope this helps
