    Lightbulb Video tutorial with sql?

    Hey everyone!

    As you can see I'm new on the forum. What u can't see I'm a IT student that is begining hes journey with sql :P
    I have been watching this forum for a while now but can't find any sql video tutorial. Maybe becouse there were no thread about it xP
    Anyways I checked the http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...ces-on-the-net topic for some starting clues.
    It comes up handy but still I would like to get a good video tutorial. Anyone can recomment smt? If its rly good I can even pay for it [u know I'm a student, cheap ******* xP ].

    And ya, sure I can google it, but I think u guys know more about what's good and what's not then google
    Just remember, a newbie tutorial!

    Hi adrianpapak, welcome to the forums,

    Sorry if I can't be much help. I learned (and am still learning) how to work with databases by reading books and getting my hands dirty writing code.
    PHP and MySQL at first, then brief skirmishes with other languages and other databases, which I still subject myself to at times.

    I imagine there must be some video tutorials out there but I don't know of any offhand. Anyway, I wanted to welcome you to the forums and hopefully someone that knows of any will happen along soon.

    Any one have some experience with it? 5$ is really cheap tho :P
    Maybe some other handy tutorials? I'm a little sceptical about that 5$ tutorial.. ;p

    yeah, you're right, $5 does sound a little dodgy

    the one you linked is $27, though, and from the table of contents it looks comprehensive

    however, there are plenty of free non-video sql tutorials out there (plenty?? hunnerts and hunnerts of them!!) and some of them are excellent

    however, i haven't looked at tutorials for years, so i cannot recommend any at this time

    if you really don't want to google, and are willing to pay a modest amount, may i suggest an e-book?

    E-book? Well sure, I would like to try everything that can help me.
    For sure I will do a little googling on the weekend but till then a good e-book would be fine.

    The only thing that I'm afraid is that a book can be too hard for a starter Thats why I requested a video tutorial but can try
