As per title, I want to learn 'databases.' I have a minor experience in my one of uni courses (it wasnt a dedicated database course) where I used MS Access to design a relational database complete with a frontend. All the stuff were built up on a prior excel project. I did this about a year ago so i've forgotten most of it. I want to pick it up again.. any advise on what book(s) to get and what database programming software I should use this time around? Should I stick to Access or learn mySQL or something else? It's not a job requirement, I just want to learn 'new' skills. Any advise would be much appreciated. Thaaanks.
