Benefits: inserting,retrieving and manipulating data from a large selection of databases. Basics are mostly the same for the various SQL-dialects
Quite essential when you deal with those as developer/manager even hidden behind ORM-tools like Hibernate/Linq. There is a mindset difference using sets (moving boxes, SQL optimized) instead of enumerate and walkthrough (move the contents of the box one by one)
Basics: SELECT ... FROM ... WHERE ... GROUP BY ... ORDER BY ... ;
Basics: joins (inner,outer,left,right)
Manipulation: INSERT/DELETE/UPDATE/MERGE
Subquery refactoring: WITH
Transactions and the ACID principle
W3school seems to have an extensive area
SQLzoo is kind of interactive
Mind the strange behavior of NULL, and try to avoid select *

Try setting up a database
and querying it with SQL Developer
