I'm learning SQL thru UDEMY and I'm trying to DL My SQL onto my machine, but when I get to the terminal, that's where I encounter my issues- nothing can be found. If I use SQLPro Studio for the course, is it better? I ask because MySQL WorkBench integrates with SQLPro Studio. I just want to get certified and start working again.

We have a 138 row, 1700 column database likely to grow at least a row and a column every week. We are mostly concerned with how user-friendly the graphical management tools are. I understand MySQL has MySQL WorkBench, and Microsoft SQL Server has Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. We have about 6 months to migrate our Excel database to one of these DBMS, and continue (hopefully manually) importing excel files from then on. Any tips appreciated!
