You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Open the database in the above folder.
Create a query showing the number of Xmas songs each artist has recorded, and then sort it so that the most successful artist appears first:
Cliff rules the Christmas charts!
Save this query as SongsByArtist, then close it and the database down.
So, it took me forever to figure this out, but to match what the solution shows, you must Sort: Rank by StDev(Standard Deviation).
Can anyone elaborate as to why that's the method we're sorting by?
