9780072130966: SQL: A Beginner's Guide

This work approaches teaching Structured Query Language the way most people learn it - by focusing on critical tasks first. Structured pedagogy enhances the learning experience: modules, goals, projects, mastery checks, one-minute drills enhance the learning experience. All coding is based on real-world scenarios. No hypothetical SQL statements. Projects include pre-built databases including: product tracking database, order entry for small business, patient tracking for medical facility and more. The book also includes quick-look up appendix of the most critical SQL commands and techniques, sample SQL code for both Access and SQL Server 2000, and syntax and information on the emerging new standard to SQL -SQL 3.

From the Back Cover:

Learn the basics of Structured Query Language programming from the tutorials and examples in this easy-to-follow resource.

SQL: A Beginner's Guide teaches you how to use SQL to work with data in a database, develop database objects, create subqueries, build views, write stored procedures, and accomplish complex selects and updates. The examples throughout the book walk you through real-world database tasks. If you want to get started programming in SQL right away, this is the ideal self-paced learning tool for you.

This Beginner's Guide is Designed for Easy Learning:

-Ask the Experts - Q&A sections throughout are filled with extra information and interesting commentary
-1-Minute Drills - Quick self-assessment sections to check your progress
-Annotated Syntax - Example code annotated with commentary that points to the particular technique illustrated
