This tutorial covers commonly-used SQL commands in three sections: 1. SQL
commands; 2. Table Manipulation; and 3. SQL Syntax. Each basic SQL command is
well explained with an example. Most of the examples use the same table named
Store_Information, which makes the learning process easier. It is an excellent
learning tool and reference material for beginners.

Technical Remarks:

The material is easy to use. Students can choose one of the three sections by a
click, and can easily find a topic under a section.
