Description

Do you want to learn a skill that can help you earn nearly $100,000 per year? If so, then this course is for you!

SQL (Structured Query Language) is the language we use to interact with databases that store data. This allows us to retrieve data with ease and simplicity. As terms like business intelligence and big data become more familiar, businesses will need more people to learn the SQL language.

This course will teach you how to use the SQL language within Microsoft SQL Server, one of the most popular database engines in the world.

You will have plenty of video lessons to teach you the majority of the content. Each section includes practice problems or additional e-books to help reinforce what you learn in the video tutorials.
