I never thought I'd enjoy learned about databases so much, let alone from a 900-page book. My only criticism is that the acronyms and abbreviations Ramakrishnan uses often usually hurt more than they help. BCNF, FD, IC? Sure, whatever. But expecting me to decrypt "SNLRWH" into the schema "sailor_id, name, ..."--actually I can't remember what "LNRWH" were supposed to be. Nor can I find where it was originally defined. Definitely made it hard to read.

Tough one for me. My professor in a graduate course made this optional as a supplement to class lecture. We didn't often connect the topics and he often used different techniques to teach logical operations concept. I did work through many of the exercises in Chapter 5 diligently to practice lots of SQL - database content on supporting website was very useful.

The book corresponds to a bible, essentials and depth of how old and cores of modern RDBMS are designed. Most suitable as a textbook with any relational databases related course.

A very standard textbook for classes in DBMS. A very typical one. But it's a very good book for people who wants to know about database in general with some details in it, of course.
