Database Stuff: SQL Syntax

I've always felt that once you understand the logic behind programming, the syntax is the easy part. For example, as someone who developed myself as a programmer, I was able to pick up languages like Perl and Ada even though I never took a class in either language. One of the best tools you can get in a case like this is a quick reference guide (for example, I always had this site bookmarked for Perl).

Learning SQL is a little different than any programming language, but there are quite a few web sites that help with the syntax. Here is a web site that has a quick list of the syntax for the SQL language. Also notice on the left are short tutorials on each of the commands.
