Improving my knowledge of SQL and PostgreSQL
December 16, 2011 7:59 AM   Subscribe

Free or creative-commons books to help me improve my knowledge of SQL.

I'm looking for any books or pdf tutorials on SQL (specifically for PostgreSQL). I'm able to do most things that I need to in SQL, but I'd like to become very proficient at using it. I use pgAdmin and more or less understand how to use it, but feel that there are more efficient ways of doing some steps.

Ideally, I would like books that are free or under a creative commons license. I would like them in pdf format so that I can read them on an iPad while not having an internet connection.

Thanks hivemind!

Read the manual. It's the best Postgres book: http://www.postgresql.org/docs/manuals/

Not to state the obvious, but there are a lot of SQL (and other!) books you can get for free from your local library.
