Good begineer book
I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting to learn SQL.
This book is a begineers book teaching various SQL statements like SELECT, INSERT, DELETE. The book starts off with the available database models like Network, Object and Heirarchical models and then goes ahead and explains the commands. The commands are written for MySQL which is freely available for download and install. The author also explains the variations in Oracle and SQL Server where appropriate.
The commands are grouped together and covered one by one. The topics covered are statements like SELECT, INSERT, DELETE, aggregate functions, joining more than one table, set operations like union, intersection, views, indexes, constraints, transaction etc.
There is also "Test your knowledge" at the end of each chapter which helps you to reinforce what you just learnt with the solutions at the end of the book in case you are struck and don't know how to proceed.
This book just introduces all the beginners concept in a nice way. The examples are simple to follow and learn.
PROS : Covers all SQL commands, Show different variations among Database vendors
CONS : Begineer book (no indepth knowledge)
