To follow up on Eric's answer, I recommend sqlmap, you can use it to test SQL injection, and it does a very good job at that.
Also if you managed to find valid credentials for the database, you can use it to connect to the database directly and perform multiple operations such as select, insert, drop, etc. As Eric mentioned.

Prove to peers and potential employers without a doubt that you can actually do a proper penetration test. IACRB CPT and CEPT certs require a full practical examination in order to become certified.
