Packed with tips, tricks, and good information, SQL Clearly Explained, Second Edition teaches database users and programmers everything they need to know to get their job done including
? formulating SQL queries,
? understanding how queries are processed by the DBMS,
? maximizing performance,
? using SQL to enter, modify, or delete data,
? creating and maintaining database structural elements, and
? embedding SQL in applications.

? Updated and expanded to include changes in the SQL standard (SQL:1999) as well as recently implemented aspects of SQL-92.
? Includes CD with examples from the book as well as MySQL, a popular open-source DBMS, on which the examples are based.
? Web enhanced with extra features available online at www.mkp.com.
