Learning can be fun!

 I recently discovered a fabulous new series in the Teen section!  The Manga Guides combine story with technology.  The first in the series is The Manga Guide to Databases.


I really did learn the basic concepts involved in building and using databases.  SQL (Structured Query Language) is no longer a total mystery to me. 

Check out other titles now available:

  • The Manga Guide To Calculus
  • The Manga Guide To Electricity
  • The Manga Guide To Molecular Biology
  • The Manga Guide To Physics
  • The Manga Guide To Statistics

 These guide books are a lot more fun to read then regular text books.  The Manga Guides are a great way to get started when studying some complex subjects.

 Updates are available at the publisher’s website.  www.nostarch.com

All of these guides can be found at the Main Library and at each neighborhood branch in the Teen section.
