Most database products ship with some test sample databases you can use for practice. We’ll summaries here the most significant and free example databases from well-known relational database products. Each will be introduced with one or more model diagrams, and a list of tables, with total number of records and the estimated occupied size.

Create inline and regular charts directly from your query results, with trivial chart type selections.
It bothered me for a long time there was no data modeling tool to represent, in the conceptual view of a relational database model, many-to-many relationships with just a straight connector between the two tables and nothing more. With no required intersection table, as long as this was a physical level implementation detail.
