Ask Slashdot: Learning DB the Right Way; Books, Tutorials, or What?

Databases

An anonymous reader writes “I have deep experience programming in many languages, and I’ve some exposure to SQL through PostgreSQL. My math goes so far as trig and algebra, with a little statistics. So far, I’ve learned enough to be dangerous: mostly via other people’s code, experimenting, the PostgreSQL docs, etc. I’ve been successful using the DB in various ways, but I know I am missing a great deal (and probably doing it wrong, at that.) When DB articles come up on Slashdot, I don’t recognize a good deal of the terminology. What is the best way for a technical person to learn SQL/DB work using PostgreSQL? Books? Tutorials? I should mention I don’t have local access to a university or people with DB knowledge; have to do this on my own, so books or the Internet are pretty much my options.”
