The SQL Basics in MS SQL Server course starts with simple queries performed on a single table. These exercises will show you how to retrieve exactly what you need. Next, you'll start working with multiple tables. You will find out about the subtle differences between various joining methods, including INNER JOIN, LEFT JOIN, RIGHT JOIN, and OUTER JOIN.
