4.0 out of 5 stars Covers everthing - I mean everything! 27 Jun 2001
Format:Paperback
I am a 2nd year computer science student.
I used this book for our DBS course. The book gives (very very) detailed explanations on all relevent topics in databases.
As with most other books, if you dont read the first 2 chapters, you wont understand any of it. This may seem daunting as the first 2 chapters is 40 pages (especially for lazy students).
A GOOD feature of the book is it tells you what skip in a chapter depending on what you need to know.
A BAD feature of the book is that it refers to diagrams in earlier chapters, so you find yourself flipping back 200 pages looking at a diagram and then flipping forward again.
An very good book for learning about databases, but probably only useful for people doing a course as I doubt anyone would need to go into such detail in any other circumstance.

This is a great book, well written, covering everything you need to know about database design and theory. It has great sections on Relational Algebra, how to verify a database design, how to step by step create a sound database schema etc. I wish that more of my colleagues had read this book.

I've been educated the hard way after an earlier version of this book, and I find that it is still the best book out there about database theory and praxis.
