For those of you who need to quickly ramp up on SQL, but have no time to plow through a 600-page tome, this is for you. SQL in 30 Pages is a brief e-booklet of fewer than 4,000 words, designed to get you into SQL as fast as possible, as easily as possible. There is no bull in this Micro-Manual by popular online teacher U.Q. Magnusson. From the very first page you will learn about the basic concepts of SQL, including the command-line interface, the CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update, and Delete), multiple tables, functions, data types, and indexing. Simple yet comprehensive examples follow as you zip through, and each is explained in pithy detail.
U.Q. Magnusson is the popular online author of the Ebook classics "SQL in 30 Pages", "HTML in 30 Pages", and "C in 30 Pages". He brings his 22 years of experience in teaching complex software systems, full development lifecycles, and a variety of languages, packages, and environments to the fore.read more
Reviews for SQL in 30 Pages
Falls apart a little when the author gets to the Functions section, which is stepping into the most complicated part of this guide. Not really recommended, even as a quick reference.read more
