This is the SQL home page.  It is referred to by various course home pages.  It contains links to the sample database and to the folders for numbered units.  The folder names are descriptive of the topics of the units.  Inside the folders you will find the files for these units, including the PowerPoint presentations.

    Here are files on the sample database:

newcardealdesign.doc  This document contains the Access generated entity-relationship diagram for the database.

newcardealschemas.doc  This document contains schemas for all of the tables in the database.

newcardealcontents.doc  This document shows the contents of the tables in the database.

newcardeal_access2000.mdb  This is the database in an old version of Access.  It is possible to use the database with newer versions of Access too.

newcardeal_openoffice3.2.odb  This is the database in OpenOffice Base.

            Here is a folder containing documentation on a movie database.  You may want to familiarize yourself with this database because SQL test questions will be based on it.
