SQL by Example uses one case study to teach the reader basic structured query language (SQL) skills. The author has tested the case study in the classroom with thousands of students. While other SQL texts tend to use examples from many different data sets, the author has found that once students get used to one case study, they learn the material at a much faster rate. The text begins with an introduction to the case study and trains the reader to think like the query processing engine for a relational database management system.
