New to this Edition

  • NEW MINDTAP® DIGITAL HOMEWORK SOLUTION OFFERS AN ONLINE, PERSONALIZED LEARNING EXPERIENCE. MindTap® combines learning tools -- such as readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments -- into a singular learning path that guides students through the course. You’ll find a full e-book as well as a robust set of auto-gradable homework problems. Multiple-choice homework questions confirm students’ understanding of core concepts and key terms. Higher-level assignments enable students to practice database design concepts in an automated environment and chapter quizzes help prepare for exams.

  • NEW CHAPTER FOCUSES ON BIG DATA ANALYTICS AND NOSQL. Students remain on the leading edge of database concepts as they become familiar with emerging tools, such as Big Data Analytics, which examines traditional and digital sources inside and outside of the company for ongoing discovery and analysis, and NoSQL databases, designed for fast storage and retrieval of data without strictly using the tabular structure of SQL databases.

  • ENHANCED COVERAGE ADDRESSES TODAY’S MOST COMMONLY USED DATABASE SYSTEMS. To provide students with a breadth of understanding of database design and programming across a range of DBMS products, this edition now introduces all of today’s most commonly used database systems, including Oracle®, MySQL™, SQL Server, and Microsoft® Access.
