This audiobook is excellent

This audiobook is excellent if you are searching for fledglings direct in SQL this would be the book I would pick.

It additionally gives us information on the best way to present questions that we are managing in SQL. Step by step instructions to join tables and read the inquiries and how to change over them into SQL questions.

Great book for beginners

For me, someone with no background in SQL or relational data bases, I found this book easy to follow and I like the simple examples in the book. It's audio in a very non-tetchy way which was great for me. I still refer to the book when I need help with something.

Well audio, easy to follow, easy to look up

Fantastic Book to Learn SQL. I lost my original copy and I had to purchase another one. I have not used this book for editing/updating the database. I am a non-programmer and found this book relatively easy to follow along.

Good notes for managers

This was a good introductory book on the topic. An easy listenable format with just the right amount of information to help me understand SQL but not necessarily be the best SQL.

Much easier than a audiobook

I purchased this to learn SQL. After three days, I finished this book and felt very comfortable listening, audio, and interpreting somewhat complex SQL statements. This book is an excellent purchase!

Great SQL refresher

AMAZING book on SQL! if you want to start learning SQL this is the right book to start with. I am a complete SQL novice trying to teach myself. I am more of an auditory learner, but still found this easy to follow. The different fonts the author uses helps distinguish between the audio and the actual SQL code. Lots of examples. I think this would be an easy listen for any beginner.

Great book to get started in SQL

Solid intro book covering many versions of SQL. If you are a beginner it's a must listen. This book has always been one of my got references to jog my memory when a database doesn't like the SQL syntax I have served it. This book is also ideal for anyone learning SQL for the first time.
