Maybe you've written some simple SQL queries to interact with databases. But now you want more, you want to really dig into those databases and work with your data. "Head First SQL" will show you the fundamentals of SQL and how to really take advantage of it. Is your data dragging you down? Are your tables all tangled up? Well we've got the tools to teach you just how to wrangle your databases into submission. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory to craft a multi-sensory SQL learning experience, "Head First SQL" has a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.Maybe you've written some simple SQL queries to interact with databases.
