    Unanswered: Question on learning SQL

    Hi, I am new to this forum. I have a question about learning SQL. I never really had much of a reason to learn anything dealing with server programs. I now would like to learn about SQL. Is there a program that anyone knows about that can help me learn?

    sql server 2005 developer edition was 45 USD on amazon last I checked. Microsoft has a free e-learning class for it on their web site. Books online which ships with the product is an excellant resource. The 2 new INSIDE SQL SERVER 2005 books come out on June 4 I believe...
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    This should teach you enough to be dangerous:

    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    Books online are very complete. If you have a minimal knowledge in database, you can learn it yourself without any problem (I did it).

    After, some books are also goods (like "Inside SLQ Server").

    Yeah, I've never had that happen, but I read about it in this book once!
