For any Open Office users out there… I found using a set of consistent video tutorials (from this sight) for creating a database on Open Office’s Base application to be a far more effective method of learning about databases in general and how to use them.

I’ve gone all the way through to the 9th video tutorial so far.  See if you can go through each of the 15 videos starting from the first and look for any flaws or difficulties you encounter along the way.  There were a few times I got stuck but I managed to get around most of them.

For those of you who haven’t yet downloaded Open Office (free), visit the sight and click download now! – the whole suite will dowload which means you can also access many Open Office’s wonderful applications aside from just Base.
