Sharpen your SQL Skill with Real-World Practice.

Queries improve when challenges are authentic. This book sets your learning on the fast track with realistic problems to solve.

Real SQL Queries: 50 Challenges is perfect for analysts, report writers, or anyone searching for a hands-on approach to learning SQL Server.

Why this Book?

  • Get Started Quickly. All challenges are based on AdventureWorks2012, Microsoft’s universally-accessible sample database. AdventureWorks is free to download and intuitive to explore.
  • Solve Real Problems. Studying concepts is useful, but nothing accelerates skill faster than a hands-on, problem-solution approach.
  • Learn by Example. Every challenge includes a fully documented solution.
  • Lots of Helping Hands. Not sure how to begin? Each question includes a hint to set you in the right direction.
  • Something for Everyone. Difficulty varies from challenge to challenge; it’s truly a mixed bag.
  • Freshen your Technique. Solutions exhibit a wide range of functions and approaches, so you’re sure to find something new.
  • Your Teaching Companion. Ready-to-go material for SQL tutors, trainers, and college professors.

Preview of Challenges to Solve:

  • Year over Year Comparisons: An executive requests data concerning fiscal quarter sales by salesperson. She'd like to see comparisons from the fiscal quarters of 2008 to the same fiscal quarters of 2007.
  • Ten Million Dollar Benchmark: Ten million dollars of revenue is a common benchmark for Adventure Works. For each fiscal year (2007 and 2008) find the first dates when the cumulative running revenue total hit $10 million.
  • Expired Credit Cards: The Accounting department found instances where expired credit cards were used with sales orders. You are asked examine all credit cards and report the extent of such activity.
  • The Mentors: The Vice President of Sales wants the five most successful sales people to mentor the five least successful sales people. Create a list of sales people to match with one another.
  • Online/Offline: Create a summary table that shows, by territory, the percentage of orders placed online in comparison to orders not placed online.

Solutions to challenge questions available for download. Details inside.
