To get practical experience using SPARQL, there are a few useful tutorials with exercises.

  • I especially like Exercise 6 in Talis' "practical exercises". From that page you'll see links to their training material (including a tutorial on SPARQL). I'd advise starting with the exercises and consulting the tutorial only when you get stuck.

  • There's another useful tutorial by Cambridge Semantics. If it broke out the questions, I'd like it even better.

  • A SPARQL tutorial on xml.com; seems a bit dry and XMLy, but seems to have some reasonable examples.

Please forgive the shameless plug: My O'Reilly book "Learning SPARQL" is now available from O'Reilly, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. It covers SPARQL 1.0 and 1.1, and the 1.1 parts are clearly marked. See http://www.learningsparql.com for more.
