    Typos and bad code

    This book is filled with typos and bad code. If you are trying to teach yourself SQL, as the title suggests, this is extremely frustrating.

    Easy for me - software QA novice

    I come from a technical writing background with minimal programming experience. Recently became the QA on a database project. This book covers the concepts in a really easy format that does not overwhelm. I like the excercises at the end because I can see if I really 'got' the information. Yes, I found many typos (I don't know about omissions), but they were easily corrected. I also found the book extemely easy to pick up on a moments notice and 'study' for 20-30 minutes: the information is structured such that the reader can 'come away' with something, no matter how limited the time is. As an aside, I had the book bound in a spiral binding, which made it much easier to study. I have no doubt that much is left out, but I can use the information I learned in a practical way on the job. I hope to followup with a slightly more advanced text that focuses on Transact SQL.

    Mistakes and Overly Simplistic Examples Make This Book a Loser

    Give this book a miss. While the format was okay, the text contains an incredible number of mistakes and omissions. Consequently, examples, explanations, and exercises often make no sense. Also, many examples tend to be simplistic to the point of stupidity. They confer minimal educational value. Spend your time and money on a book with better content that has been more rigorously proofed.

    Great for DB rookies.

    I've read several of Sams' 'Teach Yourself' series and would have to say this is one of the better ones. The authors provide solid explanations of database basics, as well as SQL's more advanced features. The one drawback is that SQL's syntax varies among db packages. So, the examples won't always work for you. But this book lives up to its title.
