How should i count it then?

Hello, i'm bit annoyed and confused for the first time on TTH.

It want's me to count the amount of books that are in the SciFi genre.

SELECT COUNT(title) FROM books AS "scifi_book_count" WHERE genre="Science Fiction";

I also look back on the video few times and i don't understand this! What am i doing wrong?

??? I checked "Attach my code" and it didn't? Okayyy...

Use count(*) for your count and filter by genre = Science Fiction

SELECT COUNT(*) as scifi_book_count FROM books WHERE genre = "Science Fiction"

I guess i put the "AS" in the wrong place.

Yes i put the "AS" in the wrong place, god damn it. I guess 3am it bit too late to use my brain :/
