    Description

    This book provides a detailed coverage of various database concepts and models, and also covers emerging technologies in the field.

    Summary of The Book

    The book begins with the basics and then takes the reader into an exploration of the different concepts, methodologies, and models involved in Database Systems.

    The book is divided into eight parts. The first part covers the basic concepts like databases and users, database system architecture, data modeling methodologies like entity relationship (ER), and the enhanced entity relationship (EER) models.

    The second chapter goes deep into the concepts of relational databases such as relational models and constraints, relational algebra and calculus, RDBMS design by using ER and EER to relational mapping, and SQL programming.

    Part three examines database theory and methodologies such as functional dependencies and normalization, design algorithms, practical database design methodologies, and the use of UML diagrams.The next chapter looks at data storage, physical design, indexing, and query processing.

    Part five deals with transaction processing concepts and applications like introduction to the concepts of transaction processing, concurrency control, and database recovery techniques. Part six examines object database models. It begins with an introduction to object oriented techniques, object database standards, languages and design, and object-relational and extended-relational databases.

    The next part deals with security, advanced modeling, and distribution. After this, an overview of many recent database related technologies is given, like web database programming (using PHP), XML, data mining concepts, data warehousing, and OLAP. It also introduces some emerging database technologies and applications like mobile and multimedia databases, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and genome data management.

    Each chapter ends with a summary, review questions, exercises, and selected bibliography relevant to that chapter. There are a total of five appendices for the book. The first three are in the book, and the last two are available in the book’s companion website.

    The Appendices are Alternative Diagrammatic Notations for ER models, parameters of disks, and an overview of the query by example (QBE) language. Appendix D provides an overview of the hierarchical model and Appendix E introduces the concepts of the network data model.

    Nice Book

    I bought this book for academic purpose, as for UPTU Syllabus this book is truly helpful (specially for first 3 unit, you may need to refer Korth as well for last 2 units of UPTU DBMS subject syllabus), if you are a IT/CS student of Engineering.
    If its not a core subject for you, then I would not recommend this book.

    Book for Programmers if they want to understand DBMS

    Get this book if you want to develop something rather than doing research.
    This book is written in such a way that without implementing, you will not feel your self as guided.
    If you want to go research( that's altogether a different scenario)- Go for DBMS from Korth etal.
    they have theories best to be given in research.

    Best book for beginners of DBMS

    If you are keen to explore the database management system, this is the one stop book for you. Very well complied information and user specific language helps you understand the topics quite easily. Flowcharts and diagrams are the plus points.

    Best book for students studying DBMS

    This is ultimately one of the few books available in the market which truly covers the entire fundamentals of DBMS. I just wanted to buy a simple book for this subject but instead I got more than what I bargain for. Although this is not the type of book that you get what you read in one go, with patience and dedication you will find DBMS interesting and easy with this book. For those who are already familiar with DBMS you will find this book to be truly helpful.

    The best book, but students shud avoid it!

    It is best for mathematical foundation, most comprehensive without any flaws in its contents. Almost everything is defined formally. But, it's time consuming , and has a small font.
    I personally do not recommend it to beginners and students.

    It is extremely disappointing, I placed order for 5th edition of this book and it took 7 days for them to deliver the book even within Bangalore. After receiving the book I find that it is of 6th edition.When I call customer care regarding this they say that it will take up to 5 days to deliver the proper edition again.
    This highly inconvenient as I ordered this book because it is prescribed edition in my syllabus and expecting that I will get the book earlier (with out having to wait for wee...
