Beginner SQL Course

Our Beginner SQL Course is the perfect place to start if you are new to the world of database programming or database administration. In addition to learning basic SQL commands and syntax – such as how to insert, update, and delete information from tables – users will be able to practice those same commands through our free online SQL interpreter. Enter SQL commands to receive immediate results and experiment to better understand how database concepts such as table drops and table selects work.

The SQL tutorial and online interpreter currently supports a subset of ANSI SQL. The basics of commands such as select, insert, update, delete, and drop will be covered in this gentle introduction to Structured Query Language (SQL).

If you are already familiar with the basics of SQL, you can still use this database course as a refresher and practice common SQL commands and statements.

Advanced SQL Course

This unique SQL database tutorial builds on the Beginner Course. It provides budding database programmers and db admins with more advanced, easy-to-follow SQL instructions and the ability to practice what you learn on-line with immediate feedback, thanks to our SQL interpreter! You will receive immediate results on a web page after submitting your SQL Commands.

This continuation course will provide you with critical need-to-know advanced features and clauses of the select statement that were not supported in the previous site. Everything you learn here will be ANSI SQL compliant and should work with most SQL databases, including Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, MS Access, Informix, Sybase, or any other ANSI SQL compliant database.

If you are already familiar with advanced SQL commands and database administration concepts, you can still use this course as a refresher, and practice some SQL statements.

Benefits of Learning SQL

Benefit 1

SQL is simple to learn. SQL syntax is straightforward and is human readable, meaning even non-programmers can learn it.

Benefit 2

SQL is fast and lightweight. Large amounts of data can be easily processed in a matter of seconds, allowing for responses to complex queries in no time.

Benefit 3

SQL is an industry standard, approved by ISO and ANSI for use with relational databases and RDBMS.

Benefit 4

SQL is portable, meaning it can be used on PCs that run Windows, Linux, and Mac OS. It can also run on servers and embedded devices, meaning your databases can run in practically any environment or device.
