¿ Oracle 11G: SQL Å Download by ¿ Joan Casteel I bought this as a textbook for a Database Programming course All database concepts are explained concisely and effectively, and there are adequate challenges in the back of the chapters to test your knowledge No complaints.
No bad It is better is you have previous knowledge of SQL to understand better the exercises from this book.
This is a good quality text with a case study that goes throughout the book to explain techniques and concepts Sturdy construction Easy to read with plenty of examples and study questions Summary at end of each chapter is useful, as are tables of statements with syntax and examples.
Bought for a class I was taking I still use it as reference material Excellent guide.
I was dubious about another thick, high cost textbook I have enough incomprehensible database and SQL books this text is different it s so well written, it s understandable, the examples are useful, and the author points out all the little idiosyncrasies that trip up newbies Highly recommend this book for anyone starting to learn SQL or who had trouble with SQL with another text The datafiles on the companion website are easy to work with and it s a very practical, hands on text Well worth the high cost.
I typically do not have much enthusiasm for technical books published by the big textbook publishers Too many errors, too much intro overview, and bad information advice However, this book is a gem I will apologize straightaway for not writing a detailed review I am too busy to do one However, I think it s better that I review it now, than forget to review it at all.
Already I own several MySQL books and some PHP MySQL books , including Wrox and O Reily books Lately, however, I ve only used them as a basic reference when building websites Back when I tried to go through each book chapter by chapter, I was disappointed when I tried anything complicated for a newbie, such as joins and virtual tables Nothing ever worked the way the books said they would But truly, the c I am a computer science student and this was a book for my course I really enjoyed this book, the subject matter was presented in a conceptual manner with good examples I have seen other books on the subject of SQL that just give you a bunch of facts and move on to the next subject This book is not like that it flows though the subject matter and touches every fact completely before transiting to another subject If you want to learn SQL i believe this book does an excellent job of it.
Obviously this text is out of date, but some of the examples and exercises no longer work due to syntax and operational updates to SQL.
