About the Name of this Course:
When I started out to create this course, I wanted to create a Beginner Level Oracle SQL course. So I named it as 'SQL Development for Beginners'.
However as I progressed, I decided to make it much more comprehensive and cover most of the topics in the curriculum of Oracle SQL exam 1Z0-071. And so I renamed it to, 'Oracle SQL: Oracle Database 12c SQL Certified Associate'.
So, this course starts with Beginner Level lessons and progresses into next levels.
