Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 Minutes (Paperback)
For some reason the smaller the book (on databases) the more useful it is. Get this and the 'Essence of databases' and you won't need much else.
This one sits on my shelf and gets daily use as a reference.
It is also useful to learn SQL, I've just replaced my first copy with the second edition and the coverage of Stored Procedures and Triggers has improved.
The only real weakness is that some of the examples are a little simplistic, you usually need to do operations on several rows, not just one. But despite this, the book is excellent particularly for the price.
