Frank, do you mean for SQL in general or specifically related to R
working with SQL/MySQL?  

I think there are many tutorials on SQL and MySQL on the web and the
MySQL manual contains everything you ever wanted to know about MySQL

There are tutorials within the manual that I think are well-written
