Excellent intro to SQL. I bought 4 of these primers on SQL and I felt this one crashed through the basics very well. You won't become a great user in a day (no surprise there) but it will put you in a place where you can tackle a few queries and set up a practice system. If you have about 6 hours you can cram in this book and then move onto a more in-depth tutorial. I learn better if I have a good framework on which hang my concepts; so I read this and the one by Clyde Banks (and two others that were worthless). Both of these have great value for starting SQL. The grammar isn't perfect but ignore it and move on. Caveat for true beginners - If you don't understand how a relational database works, I recommend you grab a quick tutorial on that first. For experienced programmers, this can be scanned in about two hours then move onto a more in-depth tutorial. Overall an easy to read, solid, quickie primer.
This is by far a great book to learn SQL. there is a lot of examples of coding in each chapters. It's easy to read and applicable. I only recommend this book to those who are serious about learning this platform. Although the book is easy to understand from a programming standpoint. The structure of the chapters where very well thought out. I don't think the author missed anything in this crash course.
I am an SEO expert and have working knowledge of HTML, CSS and even little bit of PHP. However, MySQL is where I found out that coding is definitely not something for me. I mean I'm a creative person so coding and being 'technical' is not something I really enjoy. However, after I started reading this book, I was very pleased on how easy this stuff really is. The author has an uncanny ability to simplify this ever so popular coding language. Bottom line, if I can start learing MySql, anyone can. From now on, I truly believe that nothing is impossible and the only limits are the ones that we put on ourselves. Get it if you want to start learning MySql.
Learning SQL can be a very intimidating task, however this book breaks it down into well-explained, easy to follow instructions that will teach you the basics of the programming language. I Highly recommend this book for anyone trying to learn SQL fast.
It might be “the ultimate crash course” but not even that can teach you SQL in a day. SQL is huge! What this book does is introduce you to the vast and complex world of databases. You’ll learn about tables, about how to manipulate data (like reading, editing, writing, deleting) and most importantly, about how to behave and get the most from your SQL database. You also get a quiz after every chapter which is a great way to asses your progress and find out where you are with your studying. I can’t promise you’ll learn SQL in a day, I know I didn’t, but at least you’ll have a very good idea about it.
If you write your own script for your website like I do, this book will be invaluable! I know the ins and outs of writing HTML and even a little JAVA script, but to upgrade my site as my business grows, I knew I needed to add some dynamic features like relational database management and how to easily create tables. SQL: Learn SQL In A Day does just what the title promises... it teaches the basics of writing SQL in one day. Keep this manual by your side! It is an excellent reference tool for all occasions.
I read this book as a novice, now I can say I'm knowledgeable. Although it took me more than a day to understand the concept, without the help of this book, I probably wouldn't have been able to have an iota of understanding. I've not stopped learning. I believe I am a testimony that a novice can also learn SQL. Thanks to this book, I've been able to.
For the book, it's easy to follow, good introduction to SQL.Unfortunately, I bought a Kindle version because I thought for a simple introductory book I'd rather skim over on my Kindle and have some advanced books later. It's a disaster! All tables are shown incomplete in the Kindle version, no matter if you use a Kindle, or a Kindle app on your phone, or Kindle program on your computer, Mac or Windows. It's just a waste of money and time
