The third and heavily revised edition of this book is one of the most internationally renowned and proven textbooks on the subject of databases.
The material covered in the original book goes far beyond the scope of an introductory lecture and also deals with advanced topics and questions. This bachelor edition, which is shorter than the original and adapted to the teaching here, presents different data models and database languages and deals with the fundamentals of database design that are important for every student. All subject areas are presented in depth and so comprehensively that the book is suitable as a basis for lectures as well as for later reference and self-study. Repeat questions and exercises for each chapter make it easier to check the learning success.
The solutions to the tasks and additional chapters of the original translation on further topics are available on the Companion book website.
