Database Principles: Fundamentals of Design, Implementations and Management with CourseMate and eBook Access Card 2nd Edition
The second edition of Database Principles maintains its engaging writing style and brevity; its unique balance between theory and practice and its wealth of examples throughout the text; inspiring student-friendly learning at its best. The international edition provides a solid and practical foundation for the design, implementation and management of database systems. This foundation is built on the notion that, while databases are very practical things, their successful creation depends on understanding the important concepts that define them. The new edition has been updated with all the latest developments and technologies and incorporates a generous number of localised and motivating business vignettes that tie the concepts to real-life situations. This edition is suitable for a first course in databases at undergraduate level and will also provide essential material for conversion postgraduate courses. Providing comprehensive and practical coverage of core database concepts, it is an ideal text not only for those studying database management systems in the context of computer science, but also those on courses in the areas of information systems and business information technology. This textbook also comes packaged with a fully tailored CourseMate and an Instructor’s website will also be available to adopters.
“Database System Concepts” by Silberschatz is now in its 6th edition and is one of the cornerstone texts of database education. It presents the fundamental concepts of database management in an intuitive manner geared toward allowing students to begin working with databases as quickly as possible. Silberschatz is designed for a first course in databases at the junior/senior undergraduate level or the first year graduate level. It also contains additional material that can be used as supplements or as introductory material for an advanced course. Because the authors present concepts as intuitive descriptions, a familiarity with basic data structures, computer organization, and a high-level programming language are the only prerequisites. Important theoretical results are covered, but formal proofs are omitted. In place of proofs, figures and examples are used to suggest why a result is true.

The #1 Easy, Common-Sense Guide to SQL Queries-Updated for Today’s Databases, Standards, and Challenges SQL Queries for Mere Mortals(R) has earned worldwide praise as the clearest, simplest tutorial on writing effective SQL queries. The authors have updated this hands-on classic to reflect new SQL standards and database applications and teach valuable new techniques. Step by step, John L. Viescas and Michael J. Hernandez guide you through creating reliable queries for virtually any modern SQL-based database. They demystify all aspects of SQL query writing, from simple data selection and filtering to joining multiple tables and modifying sets of data. Three brand-new chapters teach you how to solve a wide range of challenging SQL problems. You’ll learn how to write queries that apply multiple complex conditions on one table, perform sophisticated logical evaluations, and think “outside the box” using unlinked tables. Coverage includes — Getting started: understanding what relational databases are, and ensuring that your database structures are sound — SQL basics: using SELECT statements, creating expressions, sorting information with ORDER BY, and filtering data using WHERE — Summarizing and grouping data with GROUP BY and HAVING clauses — Drawing data from multiple tables: using INNER JOIN, OUTER JOIN, and UNION operators, and working with subqueries — Modifying data sets with UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements Advanced queries: complex NOT and AND, conditions, if-then-else using CASE, unlinked tables, driver tables, and more Practice all you want with downloadable sample databases for today’s versions of Microsoft Office Access, Microsoft SQL Server, and the open source MySQL database.
