Does a decent job at teaching the concepts, but there are a lot of errors in the code. Enough that if I want already familiar with SQL, I would've been completely lost in places. Even so, there were times I had to get help from the professor or from online forums to find what was wrong.
If you purchased this book for a course, ensure you're getting the proper book -- check your ISBN number! The international edition (ISBN 973-93-325-4995-1) has questions which are different from the non-international edition.
Seriously! Finally a text worthy of keeping. With this book and the added online materials, I really enjoyed my MIS407 class. The authors are great at explaining concepts and providing in-depth examples. The online materials include pre-built databases for practice with the text. Appendix C was a huge help in installing SQL software. This book is good enough to buy and not just rent... Wish I had done that.
There should be a better presentation of core concepts throughout the book. I had to sticky not a million things to remember where they all were. E-book would probably be a good buy if you're into ctrl+f
This book explains in depth about using sql, access, data model diagrams, and more. I bought this for my database class and am new to creating databases but this book really helped me understand the use of certain ways of naming the tables and efficient methods of creating tables as well. I still have much to learn from the book. But i would recommend it to anyone interested.
Ordered this textbook for a class. It is easy to follow and layed out well, however, all of the SQL training is crammed into Chapter 2. As someone who has never used SQL before, I found the explanations and examples to be useful and precise.
This book is not a valid version in the US (the read triangle in the corner says "circulation of this edition outside of the Indian subcontinent is unauthorized"). While the content largely remains the same, practice problems in the back of the book do not match up to those of the Valid U.S. edition.
The subjects in this book is organized in a good order so that the reader progressively get familiar with database processing and design. The helpful features are the screen shots, "By the Way" tips/additional information on specfic topics, the end of chapter projects and the Appendics. The appendics discuss in detail the various database management systems (from MS Access to the big players such as MySQL, SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, and Oracle Express 10g). You will learn how to install and guided through how to use them.I also must add information about the e-book. This is the best ebook text I have purchased. The page numbers are consistent with a real book. This means the hard copy of the text's page reference and e-book page reference is aligned. All the pages are bookedmarked so that you can see all headers and sub-headers in the table of content section, and searching for key words works appropriately. The only thing to warn about is that the licencing to use the ebook on different devices is limited. I have the Kindle Touch (purchased about 2 yrs ago), in which I perferred to read the ebook on but can not (incompatiable) and can not use on Android App (2nd choice of use) but can not use due to licensing issue.I purchased the e-book and am using the PC app. Life is really mobile for me and I needed multiple options so that I can get some reading in when I can...on the bus or at lunch...etc....would have been nice to have the ebook work at least on the Android App but now I carry around my light-weight laptop.
