  • Check for the below two books. These are suggested by MS for SP2007 certification. Both have clear explanation of concepts with examples.
    • Inside Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
    • Inside Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

     

    Also get a free book  on live example of projects in pdf format @  7 Development Projects for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

  • The two books suggested by Chanakya are both books for people programming extra functionality on top of SP 2007 out-of-the-box functionality.

    If that is what you mean by "practical work" then those two books are usually the ones recommended for programming work.

    If however you want rather more straightforward ways of adding functionality to SP 2007, you should look at books on Sharepoint Designer 2007 and perhaps at the monster 1000 page books which deal with everything. If 1000 pages is too much the "Real World .... MVP" book has lots of practical advice (a chapter each from different MVPs) in less pages.

    Look at my total list of SP 2007 books here

    http://wssv3faq.mindsharp.com/Lists/v3%20WSS%20FAQ/V%20Books.aspx

    it's divided into groups (so SPD 2007 has its own group) and has lnks to Amazon so you can quickly see what other people thought of the book (and how many pages it has!). You'll find Chanakya's two books listed in the Development group (C)

  • Hi,

    Check out Safari Books Online. They have a good range of SharePoint Books that you can read directly from your browser. Tables of content and indexes are hyperlinked, and you can search keywords across multiple books.

    Depending on where you live, your local library might offer this as an on-line option for free (which is how I access it). The Safari website also offers a 10-day free trial.

    By the way, I'm not intending to take money away from the many authors who generously contribute their expertise to these forums. But you could use Safari to find a book well suited to your needs. Personally, I still like to have a hard copy of books I use regularly.

    You can breathe easily. I have written a couple of books that also have been available via Safari. When I (far too seldom!) get royalties some of them are for electronic subscriptions which I presume means Safari as PDF and other download copies come as separate items (typically 1 or 0 copies only)
