As my background is in business and I am taking a database design class, I knew that I needed a book that really broke down the components of database design to the basics for me. This book was extremely easy to follow. It came in excellent condition and was much cheaper than buying it on campus!

Great Book for beginners. Concepts are well explained, however i wished it had more examples since I had to prepare for exams!

Talk about a book that makes no sense. Grammatical errors as well as logical English errors. Impossible to follow. Had to take this class and the book did nothing to teach me. Stick to googling everything.
