Looking for a recommendation for a tutorial for postgres. Based on a majority of opinions here I am forging ahead with learning postgres even though it is for the most part way more powerful than I need at this point. I'm looking for something basic. A simple relational db. What I'm most interested in is which of the datatypes I mostly need to concern myself with. Something REAL SQL or MySQL ish. Can't seem to find anything along those lines.

Thanks.

The following few chapters are intended to give a simple introduction to PostgreSQL, relational database concepts, and the SQL language...

For me it's been a lot of reading, re-reading, asking questions, and shaking my fists at the sky while it's raining.

Also, IRC is great for asking live questions: http://www.postgresql.org/community/irc/

Be prepared to ask a lot of poorly phrased questions that get bewildered answers, but just keep asking and look up everything you're told.

Hope this helps! :)
