SQL (ANSI) FundamentalsTest | Technical level (R7)


£50.00 (Ex. Tax)

SQL stands for Structured Query Language and is how we can communicate with a database to store, edit and extract information.  SQL only works with Relational Databases ie those that use a tabular format.  In 1986 the American National Standards published a version of the SQL language to bring some conformity to the different versions available.  However, it has been updated over the years and adopted to meet ISO international standards.

This test from SHL measures knowledge of database queries using SQL (ANSI) and is designed for entry-level database programmers and administrators.  Using multiple-choice questions, it lasts approximately 45 minutes and covers the following topics:

  • Relational Database and SQL Basics
  • Grouping and totalling
  • Using SQL Data Definition (DDL)
  • SQL Data Modification
  • Queries
  • Using SQL DML

Reports provide a percentile score of candidate performance.  It highlights areas where the individual has demonstrated a good understanding and where there is room for improvement.  This test will support the recruitment of SQL and database operatives to ensure that new recruits have the skills to hit the ground running in their new role.
