For undergraduate database management students or business professionals


Here’s practical help for understanding, creating, and managing small databases—from two of the world’s leading database authorities. Database Concepts gives undergraduate database management students and business professionals alike a firm understanding of the concepts behind the software, using Access 2016 to illustrate the concepts and techniques. Three projects run throughout the text, to show students how to apply the concepts to real-life business situations. The text provides flexibility for choosing the software instructors want to use in class; allows students to work with new, complete databases, including Wedgewood Pacific, Heather Sweeney Designs, and Wallingford Motors; and includes coverage for some of the latest information on databases available.
