Introduction to SQL Server Sample Databases

To get started with Microsoft SQL Server for demonstrations & training you need some sample databases to play with. There are many sample databases available online on SQL Server across the web.

So I compiled a single list of all available SQL Server samples. Please find below, direct links to download SQL Server Sample Databases.
