This is a nice crash course for those who have already taken some kind of course on computer programming. It not only covers SQL, but also educates you on what PHP is and includes an introduction to Java at the end of the book.It is all the foundation knowledge required develop a good understanding of the language. What I especially liked about the book is that it’s concise and if you are willing to challenge yourself you can learn SQL in 12 hours. I certainly wished that I had access to this book during my studies, since it would have prevented me from spending weeks going through a single book to learn the basics of the language, the perfect book for the beginners as it has all basics of the SQL is written.
I was feeling pretty confident about my newly-acquired SQL skills so I’ve been trying to put up a website in the last four days without much success. This book made me see what I kept doing wrong and made me realize that I have much to learn. The specific examples were a big help, especially since I wanted details. Those were the best part and what set this apart from other guides for beginners. Would hands-down recommend!
This book is easy to read, easy to follow and has practice problems at the end of every chapter with the answers in the back. What more could one ask for?I learned basic to somewhat intermediate SQL very quickly with the help of this book. I highly recommend it!
This book starts with the very basics and then walks you through the intricacies of SQL in a clear, straightforward manner. I'm not great with technology but this book made understanding SQL very easy and simplified way to learn programming. It is a quick refresher that allows me to pick it up and find what I need right away. The chapters are split into specific functions. I would recommend it to anyone using databases.
I am currently searching and sorting on what language should I use. Right now, I consider SQL in my list. But I don’t know much of this language so I grab this book to learn something interesting, to convince me to use this one. This book is very interactive because it not only give the information that I needed but also gives an activity for me to try so that the author would assure that I understand what he intends to let us know. Very like it.
SQL or Structured Query Language is a special-purpose programming language designed for handling data held in a relational database management system or for stream processing in a relational data stream management system and was initially based upon relational algebra and tuple relational calculation. SQL includes a data definition, data manipulation and data control language. Some of the advantages of this programming language are that it is portable and able to run in PCs, laptops, servers, mobile phones, local systems, and internet, it is broadly used for relational databases, it is easy to learn and understand and can be used to communicate with the databases and get answers to complex questions in seconds and many more. Steve Tale in this well-written guide explains what a SQL database is and its purposes, its syntax and queries as well as its data types. You will learn how to download SQL software, how to create tables and select and filter data and of course about tables and functions with several useful examples. I truly enjoyed the quiz in the last chapter and I recommend this book to anyone who would like to know more about SQL.
