4.0 out of 5 stars Good book Nov. 29 2012
By Emilio G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book to learn from if you already have a basic understanding of programming languages. It also helps that the guy who wrote this book is my teacher in Seattle lol...I can literally ask the book questions! How often does that happen?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful book! Nov. 23 2013
By Phil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is terrible for learning SQL. It is very vague and has little to no instructions for actually learning how to use SQL. If you want to learn to create a basic database it is ok at best. Do not buy this book and expect to learn and understand SQL.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a textbook Nov. 5 2013
By Mac & Car White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is being used as a textbook in my "Intro to Databases" course. This book should not be considered a textbook, it is merely a story of a student who had taken the intro to databases course and is now trying to remember how to create a database for her school tutoring system... this book is very frustrating if your intention is to learn more about databases.

5.0 out of 5 stars clear and steady. Oct. 19 2013
By Rebekah D. Witt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It starts out almost in an abstract way, but as you read on it actually sets up the foundation for making a solid database with plenty of examples and great questions. It's the way a database should be created.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty poor book for a college course Sept. 15 2013
By Mat Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am currently working towards getting a second degree, which I believe gives me the ability to spot a decent text book, and this book is pretty poor in my opinion. There isn't nearly as much information as there is some bad story about a girl trying to make a database. Honestly I wish there was more information and less trying to write a story because the book would be cut in half, and only focus on the data that I care about. It is a pain to navigate through the poorly written story of Sharon who is trying to make a tutoring database. Besides this, the questions and vocabulary sections are annoying to attempt to work through. All the vocab is in the margins of the chapters which makes it easy to just find a short description, but they don't bother bolding the keywords in the text so you can get a better definition of the concepts. Often the questions or "Practices" are lacking in actual instruction and are more annoying that useful.

Please, if you are a professor teaching a database course, do not make your students read this.
