Probably better to read this book

The narrator speaks in a monotone, robotic voice without emphasis on when he is changing to next topic. He literally speaks out abbreviations i.e., e.g. instead of “that is”, “for example”. Seems like he has no clue about topic at hand and is bluntly speaking out what is written.
Also hearing nondescript SQL commands being blurted out just zones you out of listening.
Hence it’s probably a lot better to actually read this book.

very satisfied

I downloaded a few books on basic programming over the weekend because my boss required us to. It’s not a topic that I enjoy listening about, to be honest, but this book was a pleasant surprise. Interesting . I actually did learn something, and that’s a big deal because I can’t say that for everything I get off the audible store. Thanks to the decent amount of how-to content this book had. Very satisfied!

detailed intructions given

SQL or Structure Query Language isn't an easy thing to understand and it requires a lot of study and practice. With this guide, of course I haven't turned into an expert but I've gained a lot of knowledge which I'm practicing and using this book as a reference guide!
The technical terms and aspects are well explained along with practice database.
Got the much needed help from this guide and Thanks to author

nice instructions

I work every day with numbers and information database, but this SQL I had never heard parallax until I mentioned a friend. And so here I am with this book. I discovered a new world opened. Information, control, basics and more. to facilitate and optimize those using the database. Really an interesting discovery as well as instructive

really good

This is a really good book on SQL. Explains why to break the database into different tables which I did with one I have in OpenOffice Base and will try to program some queries. Very good for the beginner in programming in SQL

great understanding

Excellent book on providing an introduction to both how SQL works and how to write queries for extracting data. Really helped me to understand how stored procedures in the systems I tested worked, helped me to troubleshoot issues with those stored procedures, and with understanding how built in query tools were pulling data. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get a good start on learning to write and use SQL.

worked for me

. League roster, standings, scoring, scheduling, team and individual stats are all handled using a combination of inner/outer joins, subqueries and calculations. If you are new to SQL select queries and you want pull data from multiple tables, this book will show you how.

5 stars

This is a very well explained book for beginners with SQL. The first couple chapters are a primer to using SQL (basic database design concepts) which greatly helps with establishing the concept of relationships without having previously studied database design. The book is database agnostic, and consequently many features discussed that are defined in the SQL standard will not be applicable to all database systems. I highly recommend after reading each chapter to go through the documentation provided with your database system and verify the features that are available and the syntax that it expects

great database system

Even though this is all about optimizing queries, it might be the best place to start for designing databases. I say this because if you know what your end goal is and what's the most efficient way of getting there, then you'll have a better idea of how to construct the database system.
