This review is from: Database Concepts (Paperback)
I brought this book because it is the core text for a module I'm studying on database systems, It contains a great deal of detail on working with Microsoft Access alongside the software independent material on database design and theory. I'm not using the Access material so I have no idea if it's good or bad.
The material on the introduction to database systems is OK, until you come to the subject of the relational model the authors apparent attempts to simplify and dumb-down the subject result in many confused statements, additionally the sample relations and data are borderline nonsensical making the review questions more difficult to answer than they should be. The third part, "SQL" also contains poor explanations and yet more blatant errors.
This is an expensive book and I hoped for better, if you have NO prior understanding of databases you might do alright with this book but I'm sure you could find something better.
