I just wanted to know that is this book also like other head first books.
In content, also design and presentation.
If yes then does it target any specific exam.
Which SQL it covers like ORACLE or SQL SERVER?
Pls clarify

Yes, definitely you will not miss the Head First style of explaining the concepts with this book. It's amazing. Just try it man!

Most of the code is strict SQL, with a slant to MySQL in a few examples.
