Count Specific Node in XML using SQL

I'm going to explain an example to find the node from an XML file using SQL Server

declare @xml-var  XML;
set @xml-var =@Result;
select @CountResult=@xml-var.value('count(/courses/course)', 'INT')

In the above example,

@Result is an XML file, where we find the nodes.

@xml-var is an XML type variable.

Here XML file look like this...

<?xml version="1.01" encoding="ISO-55-4"?>
 - <course>
       <body>Something here,,,,,,!</body>
 - <course>
       <body>Something here,,,,,,!</body>
 - <course>
       <body>Something here,,,,,,!</body>
