When it comes to query language for relational database management systems, SQL is the industry benchmark. This hands-on course will help you advance your knowledge and keep pace with today's SQL standards. You will practice designing, writing, and testing complex SQL queries to execute on a practice database using SQL Server Express.
To be successful in this course, you should have a basic understanding of SQL and database systems prior to enrolling.

I enjoyed the class. Great writing! Things were explained very well. For me, some things were a review and I was challenged by several new things, so it was the perfect course for me. I feel the content was very practical and I can put it to use immediately in my job. Thank you!
This is my second course from this particular instructor. She definitely is an expert in her field and provided a learning environment that was conducive to learning and understanding. I appreciate that the information was understandable as I had no prior experience with SQL before her two classes. Thank you again.
I really like this instructor's teaching style. The lessons are the right length and always presented in a way which makes it easy to retain the information. Her teaching by example helps me apply what I learn and better understand how to approach similar problems.
I had last used MS Access in 2002. My new work assignment required the use of MSA 2010. The use of the MSA tool plus the SQL technique training helped me greatly to "get up to speed" on both SQL use with MSA and the new environment that MSA 2010 provides. The thorough explanations and comparisons in SQL, as I had been using SQL/89, and the options made available proved valuable.
