This is defiantly not a book for someone who is just being introduced into the database management world. Unless of course there is an instructor who will review and break down the book in a classroom setting. While the book discussed simple and relevant terms, when describing real world application, it got a little confusing. The figures and diagrams were not really helpful unless you knew what you were already looking at. Which case that is why I recommend this book, not to the novice student ...more
Had to read this for my minor. With not too much database management experience, this book was a little rough. If you have database management and design experience, I think this book would be nice to read, but man, it was a bit intense.

My rating of the book most likely has more to do with the class and not the writing of the text - be that fair or not, it has influenced my rating of the text. I just finished the class (which was very introductory - and, as such, unfulfilling). The course was just a bit too easy - which did not match the detail of the text. Because the tests were so easy (see also: taken directly from the text, almost word-for-word), I ended up skimming the last few chapters ... simply because I could and still ...more

I had to use this book for my Database Management for Library Professional's class. It was helpful and I learned from it, but it turns out not to be a huge area of interest for me. I didn't read it cover to cover, either. But I did read a good portion of it and I can see why my professor picked this for the class. It has a lot of useful information and gave more examples than you'd ever need. ...more

It is a good book, but I felt like it is a little bit not easy to read, I think there is two reasons for that: one of them, because English is not my native language, and second reason because of the size of the page is large and contains many words connected to each other. I think it deserves 3 to 31/2 stars.
