    Ok considering that:

    MCTS exam level:

    and

    MCITP exam level:

    Are you asking from a complete novice to getting to grips with the technology or are you asking from the complete novice to wanting to get certified?

    If it's the first, try the Dummies guide or the beginners guide.

    If it's the latter, get some experience of the technology first, then decide what route you want to go down, as there are different exams for different job roles.

    As Wagnerk has pointed out there are a few different areas of study with SQL depending on if your an administrator of SQL or a developer of SQL. For Administration I bought SQL Server Administration in Action from recommendations but I'm not sure if it would be any good for study as it teaches real life administration of SQL and not possibly the Microsoft point of view which in a lot of cases differ.
