This is the second year I'm in the Uni and second year I'm using this book. It helped me a lot. Nor its obviously the best book around, as it sometimes gives very confused examples,that might lead you to get some of the principles wrong or dont get them at all,but after reading some other database principe books this seem to be one of the best,at least by now.
Expensive, but worth buying.
