Wow, i am currently studying for the DB2 associate exam, perfect timing for that book!

So SQL is SQL, but as i understand some databases have their own add-ons to the language or rather customized version of it, so i wanted to know if the book was using a certain database for its example, and if so, what is it?

Having looked at the sample chapter, it uses MySQL. I guess it will mostly focus on the common SQL.

To be or not to be. It's a question.
