SQL IN A FLASH - Best source of fast facts
on 15 November 2002
Having only skimmed the surface of databses in the past I was faced this week with a rather large challenge; learn SQL in a week to give a discussion to 150 people!
On the face of it, it would seem that this was an impossible task for someone who had only dealt with HTML and XML before, but then Allen G Taylor came to my rescue!
SQL for dummies takes you through all the stages of databases from what are relational databases, tables, SQL commands, data retreival and security issues in SQL. This book is a true masterpiece and anyone wishing to get to grips with SQL should not hesitate to but this invaluable source of facts.
Allen gently guides you through all of the areas with hints, tips and reminders of commands and queries along the way.
I can honestly say that of all the books I have read relating to computer technology, none has come close to the simple practical advice of this book.
I look forward to Allen G Taylors next offering.
