This question already has an answer here:

I've taken ESRI database courses, which have been helpful to my work. But I also need training in SQL and Python as applied to GIS database management. There are lots of suggestions for Python (thanks!) - any tips for SQL as it relates to managing an Esri geodatabase?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Do you have a specific geodatabase in mind or are you looking for general material. Same for Python: Are you looking for ESRI specific material or more general? – underdark Aug 3 '10 at 21:13
I'm using ArcGIS desktop and ArcGIS Server in an enterprise SQL Server environment. – cwb Aug 10 '10 at 20:16
If you do not think that this is a duplicate then I recommend editing the question to focus it on the SQL and/or database management aspects rather than Python for ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Server because I think the duplicate covers off well on the latter. – PolyGeo Apr 26 '15 at 10:47

Note: The Python scripting for ArcGIS is for 9.3, so kinda dated. – Chad Cooper Nov 5 '12 at 23:02

And there is a free introduction online seminar in ESRI training website: Using Python in ArcGIS 10
