What is difference between ExecuteReader, ExecuteNonQuery and ExecuteScalar ?

ExecuteReader : Use for accessing data. It provides a forward-only,read-only,connected recordset.

ExecuteNonQuery : Use for data manipulation, such as Insert, Update, Delete.

ExecuteScalar : Use for retrieving 1 row 1 col. value., i.e. Single value. eg: for retrieving aggregate function. It is faster than other ways of retrieving a single value from Database.
