If someone has past experience with SQL (Over 10 years ago), would this book be a good review of current features and be a good refresher on SQL?

Hi Kevin,
I believe so. The things I find I forget after a long absence include joins, and I expect to be using my own book to refresh me after a year or more away. Plus there (hopefully) are topics you didn't encounter before that might be useful, perhaps grants and roles.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
