SQL

I'm trying to master SQL right now, and all I have right now is the basic Oracle command line. I'm curious if anyone else works with it and can recommend a program that allows you to actually view a physical representation of your tables and your database as you create them.

I recommend Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, not only does it allow you to see the relationships of your tables in the data diagram but it also allows you to interact with said diagram.

The program also makes it incredibly easy to create Tables

Overall its fairly robust, able to create simple queries by using an editor rather than having to write sql for every query, able to set up multiple users to use the database with varying permissions to what can be done. Although to pre-warn you, it was an utter pain for me to install the damn thing. That being said the reason of which can be pinned down to me upgrading from windows 8 to windows 10 (with the infamous auto-download method), while my visual studio library being installed back when I was using Windows 8. Providing you haven't done any of these things I doubt it will be as much of pain.

I appreciate the reply, but I'm kinda married to the Oracle method right now, I want to get certified in it, so does that program work hand in hand with the Oracle SQL or is it just its own internal database program?

SQL Server Management Studio is only designed to work with MS SQL Server. Oracle has their own tool: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/devel ... index.html
