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.
