Q: How do you get to Carnegie Hall?
A: Practice, practice, practice.

Your question sounds like you have a very naive expectation of what it takes to become an "expert" in SQL . . . or anything else for that matter.

You can/should install Oracle XE (it's free) on your personal computer, so as to have a database on which to practice. There are many books avalable on Amazon, and these look particularly promising:
https://www.amazon.com/SQL-Practice-Problems-learn-doing-ebook/dp/B01N41VQFO/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=how+to+learn+oracle+SQL&qid=1564 846224&s=gateway&sr=8-6
https://www.amazon.com/Oracle-Example-Prentice-Hall-Professional-ebook/dp/B002MK0W4A/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=how+to+learn+oracle+SQL& qid=1564846224&s=gateway&sr=8-7

But eventually, the only way to become truly "expert" is to put in the time as a working applications developer. And even that is no guarantee if you do not approach the job with an inquisitive mind, curious to explore options, etc. I've known people who have been in this business for 20 years and have 20 year's worth of experience. I've also known people who have been in this business for 20 years and only have one year of experience ... repeated 20 times.

Buy St├ęphane Faroult's "SQL Success - Database Programming Proficiency" book then, after a while of practive, you could buy his other SQL and database applications books.

Go for the Oracle Uni SQL Certification, it covers pretty much everything a beginner developer needs. My buddy Roopesh wrote the text book,
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oracle-Database-Fundamentals-Guide-1Z0-061/dp/0071820280
or you could go for the full OCP certification,
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oracle-Database-1Z0-061-1Z0-062-1Z0-063/dp/0071828087
we wrote that one together.

You can learn SQL on your own using various resources such as books, online free or paid courses, and by practising your learning. You can check out this post that explains various ways to learn SQL. Additionally, you can also follow Pinal Dave's blog as well => SQL Authority with Pinal Dave
