Synopsis

Learn database theory from the bestselling text with a beginner-friendly approach

Database Systems: A Practical Approach to Design, Implementation, and Management, 6th edition, Global Edition,by Thomas Connolly and Carolyn Begg, introduces you to the theory behind databases in a concise yet comprehensive manner.

The methodology behind relational Database Management Systems is presented in a simple way, with step-by-step instructions, making the text accessible for technical and non-technical readers. The text applies a realistic worked example that you follow across the chapters of the book using three explicit phases (conceptual, logical, and physical database design) to help you relate your knowledge to real-world applications. Designed for one or two-term undergraduate courses in database management or database design, this book can also be used as a working reference for IT professionals.

  • Coverage updated to Oracle 11g.
  • New review questions and exercises at the end of chapters allow readers to test their understanding.
