5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to learn SQL from scratch, 13 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes (Paperback)
The author has deliberately set out to create a book that assumes the reader has never used SQL before. It starts at the beginning with very simple tasks and works through more complex SQL as the book progresses. This book is nicely separated into small chapters so you can learn small chunks of precise material, and then come back later to learn a bit more.
It is also possible to download a training database, which accompanies the book - so you can try out, step-by-step, everything you read in the book.
I particularly like how the author quotes observations you are likely to witness when doing the tasks, so you understand the exact purpose behind entering each key stroke.
If you want to learn SQL from scratch or just need a book to jog your memory - look no further.
