DP-080: Querying Data with Microsoft Transact-SQL is a two-day course focusing on how to use Transact-SQL (T-SQL). You will learn how to query and modify the data in relational databases hosted in Microsoft SQL Server-based database systems, including Microsoft SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and Azure Synapse Analytics.

During this DP-080 course, you will be introduced to the basics of T-SQL, relational databases, datatypes, and NULL values. You will explore how to write queries, perform sort and filter operations, and remove duplicate data in the results. You will practice how to access data from multiple tables using JOIN operations and also how to join a table to itself with a self-join. Plus, you will build your knowledge of how to use SELECT statements and develop your understanding the difference between scalar and multi-valued subqueries, and correlated and self-contained subqueries.

Additionally, you will discover how to use built-in functions including math, string and system functions. You will learn how to insert, modify, and delete data from the tables. Plus, you will practice using other statements such as ORDER BY, WHERE, HAVING, DISTINCT, IDENTITY, SEQUENCE and more.

Overall, this course will prepare you for taking the DP-080: Querying Data with Microsoft Transact-SQL certification exam. Entry for the exam is not included. However, you will get a clear overview of the Microsoft certification process, plus you will get tips and tricks, testing strategies, practice questions, and useful information to help you pass the exam successfully.

This course comprises 5 purposely designed modules that take you on a carefully defined learning journey.

It is an instructor-led course which runs to a fixed schedule, with set start and finish dates. It is driven forward by your instructor and features live sessions that are aired at a set time.
