Oracle® SQL*Plus®

This course gives an introduction to ORACLE® SQL*Plus® and to SQL, the Structured Query Language used to access a Relational Database. It is based on the ORACLE 8 or 8i relational database but the principles learnt may be applied to databases as diverse as Microsoft SQL Server, Access, DB2 and Mysql.

The course is suitable for those who have some knowledge of SQL as well as those who are using ORACLE for the first time. Previous experience with an interactive computer system is desirable but not essential.

However, if you have extensive experience of another Relational Database, such as SQL Server, or of Structured Query Language, the follow up course described later may be more appropriate.
