In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to retrieve data from tables in a database using SQL SELECT statement. In addition, this project will expose you to how to use different SQL operators together with the WHERE clause to set conditions on tables in a database for database manipulation. In order to reinforce the use of SQL SELECT statement to query a database for database insights, you will work on different tasks as the concepts are being introduced to you. Note: You do not need to be a data administrator or data analyst to be successful in this guided project, just a familiarity with SQL is required. If you are not familiar with SQL and want to learn the basics, start with my previous guided project titled “Performing Data Definition and Manipulation in SQL”.
