    Download SQL Express, and start playing with it. I find the best way to learn is to give yourself a small project that you can start with, and then work your way up to the bigger stuff. The trick is usually finding a project that is small enough. Try making a catalog of your current book collection.

    I always get funny looks for this, but MANGA GUIDE TO DATABASE if you are an absolute beginner. It explains the principles.

    You get funny looks for so many different reasons...

    It is good to be able to blame it on a book recommendation, I'll have to try that sometime!

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    I suggest queries in HeidiSQL (free), or phpMYAdmin, or even SQLBuddy (all free). To practice.

    Check out SQLZoo: SQLZOO

    W3Schools is not such a good place to learn SQL there are quite a lot errors on that website (for any language, not just SQL)
    I will not read nor answer questions where the SQL code is messy and not formatted properly using [code] tags: http://www.dbforums.com/misc.php?do=bbcode#code

    Tips for good questions:
