Fundamentals Of Database System, 7Th Edn. Elmasri Ramez An.

He was the General Co-chairman of the 1996 International VLDB (Very Large DataBase) conference in Bombay, India.

Ramez Elmasri, Shamkant Navathe. Responding to the requests of database professors nationwide,the leading textbook for the introductory database management course is being fully revised in time for the startof Fall 1999 classes. It combines clear explanations of theory and real systems, broad coverage of modeling and design of databases, and excellent examples with up-to-date introductions to modern database technology.

Ramez Elmasri, Shamkant B. Navathe. Clear explanations of theory and design, broad coverage of models and real systems, and an up-to-date introduction to modern database technologies result in a leading introduction to database systems. A lab manual and problems give students opportunities to practice the fundamentals of design and implementation. Real-world examples serve as engaging, practical illustrations of database concepts.

Ramez Elmasri, Sham Navathe . He is well-known for his work on database modeling, database conversion, database design, distributed database allocation, and database integration. He is an author of the book, Fundamentals of Database Systems, with R. Elmasri (Addison Wesley) which is currently the leading database text-book worldwide. Fundamentals of Database Systems has become the world-wide leading textbook because it combines clear explanations of theory and design, broad coverage of models and real systems, and excellent examples with up-to-date introductions and modern database technologies. This book has been revised and updated to reflect the latest trends in technological and application development.

Combines clear explanations of theory and design, broad coverage of models and real systems, and excellent examples with up-to-date introductions to modern database technologies. This edition is completely revised and updated, and reflects the latest trends in technological and application development. Both professors focus on the relational model and include coverage of recent object-oriented developments. They also address advanced modeling and system enhancements in the areas of active databases, temporal and spatial databases, and multimedia information systems. This edition also surveys the latest appliation areas of data warehousing, data mining, web databases, digital libraries, GIS, and genome databases.

I needed this for my class, and it was fine, but not great. The level of detail was pretty good and there were some well-developed examples, but as some other reviewers noted, the nature of the components building off one another meant that it might be hard to find the referenced schema in an earlier (or later) section of the book while you were looking at one section. And it didn't necessary give you the page numbers so you could flip back and forth easily. If they just added the page numbers that would definitely bump my rating up.
Overall, this is a wonderful book for learning how databases work. It doesn't cover the code for all modern database wonders, but hits most of them. Best of all, it provides psuedo code showing how to implement your own methods. However, I did find errors with some of the code, in particular the sorted-merge join algorithm will miss records if the right-hand-side table has multiple matching fields. It was easy to correct, but a mistake on such a fundamental algorithm is hard to overlook. Worst, Pearson doesn't provide an easy-to-find errata site, so I couldn't report the bug or even see if there were others. Addison-wesley never had that problem. Reading this book will make any DBMS make sense under the hood. Finally, I take point away for wordiness. This books is overcomplicated and wordy and doesn't make itself useful to beginning developers. This book tries to be a history book and reference all in one and it can be overwhelming, even to someone who's written his own DBMS before. Half of the chapters seem like unnecessary chatter, just to take up some more pages to rake up the price . . . and what a price!
This is a great fundamentals text. The section overviews guide you through the book in a smooth fashion without any surprises. The exercises reinforce knowledge without overwhelming and the language is not terse.

This book does imply a basic familiarity with set theory, which frankly is an obvious prerequisite as this is not exactly a MySQL cookbook and focuses more on the theoretical concepts of database systems and less on their implementations / semantics. Don't let that deter you. Set theory is not difficult to learn and reading this book will grant you all the knowledge you need to correctly design a database for nearly all commercial applications.

The figures do take away from the effectiveness of the book in some situations. Some figures from 3 chapters previous are referenced, which will have you flipping back thick chunks of paper. The figures are also of poor quality for a 2011 publication. Not a huge issue, but could be better.
Relational database theory, for a college level, Computer Science curriculum.

I chose this book because it is a required text for an undergraduate database class. It presents relational database design from a theoretical basis. It provides an explanation, in depth, of the mathematical foundations of database theory. It is not a get started quickly, hands on guide to using SQL.

This is an important text, and required reading for anyone looking for a deep understanding of relational database theory. It is not a hit the ground running, create a few queries quickly, how-to presentation. It is a serious work, and provides a serious understanding.

The title of this book suggests that it is merely the basics; don't be fooled. This book goes far beyond the fundamentals. It is over 1,000 pages of "stuff". It is used for graduate school classes in database design. I won't bore the reader with complex theories and jargon. In short, don't buy this book unless it is required for a school course. This book will only be of use if you are attending graduate school or in search of a PhD.

If you are looking to understand how to build tables, define the relationship between tables, how to load data into a database, how to query the database of information, and simply desire a good foundation is the true "fundamentals" of database design then I recommend "The Practical SQL Handbook" by Judith Bowman and it's companion "Practical SQL the Sequel". These books will provide a better and more thorough understanding of the application of database design in terms you can understand and it leaves out the theoretical, discrete math, set theory "stuff".
This is an excellent and thorough analysis of database processes involving transactions, concurrency control, security and covers relational tables, object-relational databases as well as object oriented technology. There is a thorough overview of UML as well as ER design tools. It is a tough read and covers a lot of material and is very theoretical but practical. Relational algebra and calculus are covered thoroughly. This is recommended for an advanced database course as it's coverage of SQL is coarse and cursory. Instead this book is intended more for a behind the scenes analysis of database technology. An excellent database course as a prerequisite for using this book would use Mannino's Database Design, Application, Development and Administration. Mannino's book has an excellent coverage of SQL and its applications.

This one was my first use book i got and is was as description still with the CD.
Book was delivered ahead of schedule. I have gone through the first few chapters and I think the concepts are well presented with lots of examples and exercises. Great book for anyone interested in learning database concepts and design!
