Essential SQL fast provides a comprehensive guide to SQL, using the Windows-based version of MySQL. MySQL is a freely available, multi-platform database management system, making it ideal for learning the techniques and concepts of database design.

In doing so he covers various topics, including: installing and testing MySQL; using the graphical tools; database design techniques and concepts; retrieving, changing and deleting data; and how to make other products communicate with MySQL.
