For many new or intermediate database developers, it's difficult to know where to start when designing a relational database. It's easy to make the mistake of assuming that the functionality of a database will take shape over time, or the design will fall into place as you build the database. This course covers the steps to effectively plan and design functional, efficient databases. It will start with an introduction to SQL and Relational Database Management Systems, the Fundamentals of SQL Concepts and Principles, and Creating and altering RDBMS objects. Prerequisites: Before taking this course, you should have a basic understanding of your computer's operating system. For example, you should know how to launch an application, create and save files, copy files from CD and other media. You should have some familiarity with data tables and basic knowledge of how to create queries in Microsoft Access. Text: The SQL Bible by Kreigel and Trukhnov.
