Downloads from Wrox.com AdventureWorks
I downloaded the sample databases for the Programming SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services book, but the zip files extract to AdventureWorks_WroxSSRS.bak. What is this file type? Does it need to be renamed? Should it not be a *.msi file like the readme says? Or at least a *.mdf file? I'm lost.

I figured it out.

In SQL Server Management Studio, in the Object Explorer pane, right click on the Databases folder of your SQL Server instance. Select Restore Database...

Choose Device and browse to your *.bak file.

The database will be restored to your SQL Server Data directory.
