This book is aimed at the reader who has no prior experience of databases and who wishes to gain a fundamental understanding of this subject, whether as a student or professional. The wide, example-rich coverage begins with a discussion of data itself and then progresses through areas that include database management systems, distributed databases, the various languages used, and an overview of current database trends. Each section is accompanied by practical problems and solutions enabling readers to measure their understanding and development. The book's accessible, jargon-free style is designed specifically for the uninitiated, and it has a systematic progression from the rudiments to a broad conceptual understanding of databases. The book includes a comprehensive glossary and self-test questions at each stage.
