I learnt SQL from this book when I was in the university. It was the prescribed text book for a database course that I took and I should say that it is one of the best books to learn from.
The book
offers an ongoing exercise with examples & details so that you can practice on a live database that you build and maintain. This was the best part of the book for me.
I have used this book as a reference for all my sql needs and it definitely acts as a great refresher.
I recommend this book to anyone who want to learn SQL, whether for school, fun or work.
