Beginners look no further!

I'm a newbie to SQL, and borrowed a copy of this book from a coworker a few weeks ago. I was hooked from chapter 1. I'm already creating and dropping tables and manipulating data, and understanding everything! This book is wonderful, and I urge anyone who wants a good solid understanding of SQL to get a copy and just sit down and start reading. The examples are easy to follow but not patronizingly so, and there are short quizzes at the end of each chapter to reinforce the main concepts. This is going to be an invaluable resource for me as I continue down this path. Five stars aren't enough!

The Other Customer Reviews Were Spot On

As a full-time student, I was after a book to compliment course notes that I recieve and get a better understanding of more advanced SQL. The other customer reviews swayed my decision to choose this book and it was everything and more than I expected. Keep those reviews coming.

An Excellent Place to Start

This book offers the basics to the first part of advanced. It is great in that all of the explinations are followed by many examples on a working database (downloadable). It is quite an amazing and very much worth while book for both reference and beginning SQL

Awesome! VBers out there will really find it useful as well

I've owned this book for only 48 hours and have read it from cover to cover and I am starting with it all over again!The Author covers ANSI SQL clearly and in-depth with good examples!I would recommend this for anyone who wants to learn SQL and have an accurate reference.It's for beginner to advanced SQL folks! As a professional Visual Basic, SQL, and Pascal developer, I really needed a reference manual like this one! You know, for those times when you're in the middle of writing some SQL code and ask yourself a question like: "Now how do I format that 'Select' statement?"I've tried a couple of the "SQL For Dummies" books and returned each of them! I really did not think that a book like this existed, but here it is!Get this book!

Best SQL Primer

I bought this book to cram for an interview and found it to be an excellent reference book. The inside cover has the syntax of the SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE commands - quite useful.
