Having trouble with the COUNT function in SQL (Microsoft Access)

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Microsoft Access 2003

Teacher = [CourseN, Quarter,TeacherName]
Course = [Course N Quarter , DayTime,  Room #]/ Examples of DayTime: M 2:00,
W 4:50, and T 8:00.
Student = [studentName,Course #, Quarter]

^The underlined words are the primary keys

I want to be able to list the student name that took the most courses.. but I'm having trouble coming up with the correct syntax

SELECT A.studentName
FROM Student A
FROM Student B
WHERE COUNT(CourseN)) > ......something here

or If I wanted to list every course number and the student's name who has taken the same course twice... I have something like:

SELECT A.studentName
FROM Student AS A
GROUP BY A.studentName
HAVING Count(CourseN)>2;

but that's coming up wrong too..

any help would be appreciated, thanks
