This book I used in an intro to Database class.
The structure of the book is very good , I found that the balance between theoretical and practical concepts are well presented. The depth covert regarding the theory give an idea but if you rely like to know about it you should reference to other book. Regarding the coding part (SQL), on the positive side the book covers different databases Oracle,SQL server, and even access. but the main focus is on ORACLE. On the negative side some explanation are a fast as if you should know already.
Overall this is a very good book for Beginners in DATABASE.
There is nothing here for advance users.
