Head First SQL: developers or DB admins?

Hiya Lynn,

I was wondering what sort of level your book is aimed at? The previous HF books take you all the way from beginner to certified so is this new tome in the same mould?

Is there a specific certification which the book is aimed at as several somewhat proprietary standards exist for the various DBs on the market.

Would it be more applicable to developers or DB admins?

I'd say it takes you from beginner to a fairly advanced level where you can really dig into related topics. We don't have a certification target for this one.

I'd lean toward developers, who maybe have lots of different technologies and are comfortable with programming, but haven't gotten around to SQL yet. If someone is a DB admin, he *should* know what's in here very well, but if not, it's for him.
