The fast and easy way to learn SQL

Start programming in SQL right away using this easy-to-follow guide. SQL Demystified explains how to write and run database queries with SQL. Step-by-step instructions with lots of examples help you learn quickly.

Featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will have you programming in SQL in no time.

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, SQL Demystified is your shortcut to mastering this powerful programming language.

This one-of-a-kind, self-teaching text offers:

  • An easy way to understand SQL
  • A quiz at the end of each chapter
  • A final exam at the end of the book
  • No unnecessary technical jargon
