Our 3 SQL books are designed for developers who want to know more about SQL querying so they can write more effective programs. All 3 are basically the same book, but tuned to different flavors of SQL. They all start with querying, since that’s what any developer has to know first. But they also cover database design and implementation, basic DBA tasks, and using advanced database features.

Murach’s SQL Server 2016 for Developers

This is our top-selling SQL book. It teaches you how to code the SQL you’re most likely to use on Microsoft systems (also known as T-SQL). In the advanced SQL section, it covers subjects like views, scripts, stored procedures, functions, triggers, transactions, database security, XML and BLOB data, and the basics of CLR. And it gives you enough database management background that your DBA will appreciate you.

Murach’s MySQL (3rd Edition)

MySQL is today’s most popular database for web applications, especially when PHP is the programming language. This latest edition of our MySQL book is fully up-to-date and now covers features like window functions, Common Table Expressions (CTEs), and roles for database security. Of course, it still does a great job of teaching SQL querying from scratch and showing you how to handle DBA tasks that you might be responsible for, depending on the website size and complexity.

Murach’s Oracle SQL and PL/SQL for Developers (2nd Edition)

Oracle has been around for a long time and is a top choice of large, enterprise installations, especially when Java is the programming language. Besides SQL querying and DBA-related tasks, our book teaches you how to write procedural code using Oracle’s PL/SQL, so you can create general SQL routines that use control structures (like If/Else or loops) to work in a variety of situations.
