Data Modeling and Database Design
Thomson Course Technology, 2007 - Business & Economics - 698 pages
Data Modeling and Database Design presents a conceptually complete coverage of indispensable topics that each MIS student should learn if that student takes only one database course. Database design and data modeling encompass the minimal set of topics addressing the core competency of knowledge students should acquire in the database area. The text, rich examples, and figures work together to cover material with a depth and precision that is not available in more introductory database books.
