    Unanswered: Any Good Book Recommendations?

    I know basic SQL and have passed two Oracle Exams, SQL and PL/SQL Programming. Ironically, my first (and only job unfortunately) was in MS SQL Server 2000. I want to know of a good overall SQL Book that is beyond beginner level. Something that answers questions like "How do you get rid of duplicate records in a table?", etc and other practical, real world issues. Is there such a text? It can be Oracle or MS or whatever as long as the theory is sound. Thanks.

    paul, the jim hoffman tutorial used to be the only decent sql tutorial on the web

    but jim hoffman disappeared, and so did his site, a couple years ago

    you can still get it at, where the latest version is November 2001, 4.76
