I clicked on the 2 links:
Extra SQL Practice: Lorenzo Shipping
Even more practice: https://data.world/jamesgaskin/movies
But couldn’t find any instructions to follow to practice writing SQL statements. Am I missing something there? I could use the extra practice but just a simple set of data doesn’t really help me.
Great question! To me, it looks like there aren’t any practice instruction available with those databases either, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use them to practice. A great way to get more familiar with SQL would be to think about what you would like to see from the datasets and write your own queries without a prompt.
Not only will coming up with your own “prompts” give you more practice writing SQL queries, but it will help you become more familiar with how to look at a database and understand what kinds of queries you could pull from them. It would be great practice!
If you want a little guidance to get started, you can add yourself to the TA Help Queue. We would love to help get you set up and give you a couple ideas.
