Hi everyone!

Please I need a VERY GOOD BOOK on SQL. One that can help me better understand SQL they way Kathy's Books has helped me better understand Java.

Any suggestions?

N.B: Please, a very very very very explanatory good book.

Thanks!

Don't know myself. Unfortunately all the SQL books in our reviews section are a few years old. I have a DuBoid at home, an introduction to MySQL, with an introduction to SQL in its first parts, which I liked, but it is by no means of the "Head First" style.

Sorry. Maybe somebody else will know. If you ask on another forum, be sure to tell people on both fora you are asking in both places.

Hy, I recommand you
Introduction in Oracale9i SQL ( Volume I+II).
You find it on internet.

It's accesible for total beginners.

If you like the Head First style, why not go for Head First SQL?

SQL PL/SQL by Ivan Bayross is a very good book to start up with.
