For undergraduate database management students or business professionals.

Understand, create, and manage small databases.

Written by one of the world's leading database authorities, Database Concepts introduces the essential concepts students need to create and use small databases.

The fifth edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the changes in Microsoft® Access 2010, as well as other database management software.

Understand the concepts behind the software: This text's presentation of database concepts offers information on how to create a database management system-regardless of the specific software involved. Overall, this presentation helps students absorb the process of database creation and implementation, rather than simply show them how to complete the steps in one program.

NEW! Work with Access 2010: The new edition of this text continues using The Access Workbench feature, which was first introduced in the third edition and has been fully updated to reflect Access 2010. Illustrating the chapters' concepts and techniques using Access, The Access Workbench topics start by creating a database and a single table in Section 1 and move through various topics, finishing with Web database processing against an Access database in Section 7 and using Access (together with Excel) to produce PivotTable OLAP reports in Section 8.

Put the concepts into action: Three projects run throughout the text, encouraging students to apply the concepts they learned in the chapters to real-life business situations.


  * Project 1: Garden Glory concerns the development and use of a database for a partnership that provides gardening and yard maintenance services to individuals and organizations.


  * Project 2: James River Jewelry addresses the need for a database to support a frequent-buyer program for a retail store.


  * Project 3: Queen Anne Curiosity Shop concerns the sales and inventory needs of a retail business.

Provide flexibility on the software you use in class. Because of the book's conceptual nature, any number of database programs can be used in class. This approach helps students focus on database concepts rather than the features and functions of a particular product.

NEW! Allow students to work with new, complete databases: The use of fully developed data sets for three new example databases run throughout various portions of the book. Databases include:
