About This Class

This course is the foundation for the Microsoft Certificate 70-461: "Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012/2014".

Rather than present one huge course, this course takes some of the basics and then goes in depth. The basics presented are: how to install SQL Server, and how to create and drop tables.

We then try to create a more advanced table, but find that we need to know more about data types - so we go into some detail about data types and data functions, the foundation of T-SQL.

No prior knowledge is required - I'll even show you how to install SQL Server on your computer for free!

There are regular quizzes to help you remember the information.

Once finished, you will know what how to manipulate numbers, strings and dates, and create database and tables, and have an appreciation of how they can all be used in T-SQL.
