SQL: Access to SQL Server is more than just a comprehensive reference tool for Access developers. You'll also find efficient SQL solutions for common Access problems and tasks, as well as helpful hints and warnings about what to avoid. Learning Jet SQL is an important step from just using Access to developing with Access. In addition to learning Jet SQL, readers will embark on a journey into the world of SQL Server 2000. The journey starts when you learn how to install SQL Server and ends with an introduction to XML and ASP. Along the way, using Access Data Projects, you'll see features new to SQL Server 2000, including functions that return tables, instead of triggers and gotchas with upsizing. The authors highlight not only the enormous opportunities awaiting you as an Access developer, but also the potential challenges and pitfalls you may face as you move from Access to SQL Server 2000.

The investigation phase is the most important segment of any geotechnical study. Using the correct methods and properly interpreting the results are critical to a successful investigation. Comprising chapters from the second edition of the revered Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook, Geotechnical Investigation Methods offers clear, concise, and hands-on guidance for choosing and executing a variety of field investigations. This practical guide provides an affordable alternative to larger handbooks and condenses the essential elements of a geotechnical investigation into an easily digestible and readily accessible format. Renowned expert Roy E. Hunt discusses preliminary study to predict geologic conditions, applying information from geologic and topographic maps as well as remotely sensed imagery, proper test boring procedures, the various geophysical methods and when each is appropriate, and a variety of methods for determining materials' engineering properties in the lab and in situ. Hunt also covers field instrumentation for surface movements, subsurface deformations, and in situ pressures and stresses, as well as instrument arrays for typical problems such as structure settlement and fault movements. Eliminate the need to search through narrow volumes or large handbooks with Geotechnical Investigation Methods: A Field Guide for Geotechnical Engineers, a convenient and complete guide to the techniques you need.
When New York–based graphic designers and long-time friends Timothy Goodman and Jessica Walsh found themselves single at the same time, they decided to try an experiment. The old adage says that it takes 40 days to change a habit—could the same be said for love? So they agreed to date each other for 40 days, record their experiences in questionnaires, photographs, videos, texts, and artworks, and post the material on a website they would create for this purpose. What began as a small experiment between two friends became an Internet sensation, drawing 5 million unique (and obsessed) visitors from around the globe to their site and their story since it was launched in July 2013. 40 Days of Dating: An Experiment is a beautifully designed, expanded look at the experiment and the results, including a great deal of material that never made it onto the site, such as who they were as friends and individuals before the 40 days and who they have become since. Note: 40 Days of Dating has a special binding that allows it to open very flat by attaching the endpapers to the inside covers.

ORACLE 11G: SQL is an introduction to the fundamental SQL language used in all relational databases today. This textbook is not simply a study guide; it is written for those who have just a basic knowledge of databases and can be used in a course on this latest implementation of SQL from Oracle. Learning these concepts and techniques prepares students for the first exam in both the Oracle Database Administrator and Oracle Developer Certification Exam paths and offers a solid understanding of using Oracle 11g SQL effectively. The first part of ORACLE 11G: SQL focuses on creating database objects, including tables, constraints, indexes, sequences, synonyms, and users, and manipulating data. The second part explores data query techniques, such as row filtering, joins, single-row functions, aggregate functions, subqueries, and views. Several advanced query topics, such as ROLLUP, CUBE, and TOP-N analysis, are also introduced. To help students bridge these SQL topics to further studies, appendixes introduce SQL tuning, compare Oracle’s SQL syntax with other databases (MS SQL Server and MySQL), and explain how to embed SQL in applications (ASP.NET). An overview of the two Oracle connection interface tools, SQL Developer and SQL Plus, is also provided. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
