Es führt Sie rasch durch die Basics der Sprache und vermittelt darüber hinaus eine Reihe von häufig genutzten fortgeschrittenen Features. Mehr aus SQL-Befehlen herausholen: Alan Beaulieu will mehr vermitteln als die simple Anwendung von SQL-Befehlen: Er legt Wert auf ein tiefes Verständnis der SQL-Features und behandelt daher auch den Umgang mit Mengen, Abfragen innerhalb von Abfragen oder die überaus nützlichen eingebauten Funktionen von SQL. Die MySQL-Beispieldatenbank: Es gibt zwar viele Datenbankprodukte auf dem Markt, aber welches wäre zum Erlernen von SQL besser geeignet als MySQL, das weit verbreitete relationale Datenbanksystem? Der Autor hilft Ihnen, eine MySQL-Datenbank anzulegen, und nutzt diese für die Beispiele in diesem Buch. Übungen mit Lösungen: Zu jedem Thema finden Sie im Buch gut durchdachte Übungen mit Lösungen.
