I received a copy of Learning SQL Server Reporting Services 2012 written by Jayaram Krishnaswamy. This is a pretty good book for getting up and running with SSRS 2012. It is well-organized and addresses just about everything an SSRS developer needs to know. It takes the reader from the basics, from installation, up through some simple reports, and on to some advanced features. SSRS reports can be built using SQL Server Data Tools (the replacement of BIDS which is used in earlier versions), and Report Builder. It addresses some of the programming tools that can be used with SSRS, such as Power Shell, and also includes samples on using the Report Viewer control with .NET applications. It covers SharePoint installation and how to integrate SSRS reports and SharePoint. It addresses the new features in SQL Server 2012 that can be used with SSRS such as Power View and Data Alert. It even gets into Windows Azure SQL Reporting.
