    How hard is it?? To me it seems rather simple to learn and I enjoy it most times. The problem is changing your mentality from sequential type execution to thinking about your problems in terms of sets.

    One of the most challenging topics/operations for me to implement was set division. My text was simply awful about explaning this but I googled and found some more helpful tutorials.

    I don't know any tutorials on the web tho...sorry.

    Assuming you understand database design, SQL is about as tough as BASIC. Really, it's that easy.

    general-use SQL is psuedo-code.

    Basic SQL is very, very easy. It can be as hard as you want, but the basics are very easy.
