For pros, I can definitely give the book ample credit on the extent to which it explains a variety of concepts and applications of database systems.
For cons, the way it goes about conveying that information is often wordy beyond what is remotely necessarily, and oftentimes there are half-page long asides that really don't matter much in terms of the overarching concept of that section.
Another issue which is more prevalent in the earlier sections is that the same database schema is often referred to in examples when in the case of those who are fresh learners, multiple different examples would be beneficial, particularly to show the wide variety of applications to which databases could be applied.
My professor largely teaches from the book, so if you find yourself in a similar boat it shouldn't be hard at all to get through the class, especially if you end up having an affinity for databases.
I needed this for my class, and it was fine, but not great.
The level of detail was pretty good and there were some well-developed examples, but as some other reviewers noted, the nature of the components building off one another meant that it might be hard to find the referenced schema in an earlier or later section of the book while you were looking at one section.
And it didn't necessary give you the page numbers so you could flip back and forth easily. If they just added the page numbers that would definitely bump my rating up. Paperback Verified download. This review is about the quality of the physical book, not the textbook's content in side the book.
I was disappointed that the plastic packaging for the book peeled off half of the cover. Additionally, the pages of the book are printed on extremely thin, cheap newspaper quality paper, as opposed to the standard glossy textbook paper. The title of this book suggests that it is merely the basics; don't be fooled. This book goes far beyond the fundamentals. It is over 1, pages of "stuff". It is used for graduate school classes in database design.
I won't bore the reader with complex theories and jargon. In short, don't download this book unless it is required for a school course. This book will only be of use if you are attending graduate school or in search of a PhD. If you are looking to understand how to build tables, define the relationship between tables, how to load data into a database, how to query the database of information, and simply desire a good foundation is the true "fundamentals" of database design then I recommend "The Practical SQL Handbook" by Judith Bowman and it's companion "Practical SQL the Sequel".
These books will provide a better and more thorough understanding of the application of database design in terms you can understand and it leaves out the theoretical, discrete math, set theory "stuff".
Relational database theory, for a college level, Computer Science curriculum. I chose this book because it is a required text for an undergraduate database class.
It presents relational database design from a theoretical basis. It provides an explanation, in depth, of the mathematical foundations of database theory. It is not a get started quickly, hands on guide to using SQL. This is an important text, and required reading for anyone looking for a deep understanding of relational database theory.
It is not a hit the ground running, create a few queries quickly, how-to presentation. It is a serious work, and provides a serious understanding. Overall, this is a wonderful book for learning how databases work. It doesn't cover the code for all modern database wonders, but hits most of them.
Best of all, it provides psuedo code showing how to implement your own methods. However, I did find errors with some of the code, in particular the sorted-merge join algorithm will miss records if the right-hand-side table has multiple matching fields. It was easy to correct, but a mistake on such a fundamental algorithm is hard to overlook. Worst, Pearson doesn't provide an easy-to-find errata site, so I couldn't report the bug or even see if there were others.
Addison-wesley never had that problem. Reading this book will make any DBMS make sense under the hood. Finally, I take point away for wordiness. This books is overcomplicated and wordy and doesn't make itself useful to beginning developers. This book tries to be a history book and reference all in one and it can be overwhelming, even to someone who's written his own DBMS before.
Half of the chapters seem like unnecessary chatter, just to take up some more pages to rake up the price. This is a great fundamentals text. The section overviews guide you through the book in a smooth fashion without any surprises. The exercises reinforce knowledge without overwhelming and the language is not terse. Don't let that deter you. Set theory is not difficult to learn and reading this book will grant you all the knowledge you need to correctly design a database for nearly all commercial applications.
The figures do take away from the effectiveness of the book in some situations. Some figures from 3 chapters previous are referenced, which will have you flipping back thick chunks of paper.
The figures are also of poor quality for a publication.
Not a huge issue, but could be better. See all reviews.
