@devesh • 11 Apr, 2008 once again thanks a ton....
@Yamini L • 12 Apr, 2008 I think the best book for DBMS would be Abraham Silberchatrz..check it out..
@Prasad Ajinkya • 12 Apr, 2008 I would strongly suggest DBMS - Korth. The author takes you from the ground up and builds your fundamentals by explaining the exact logic behind SQL queries.

For beginners, start reading up ANSI SQL, rather than any particular flavour of SQL, since then you can write queries on any particular DBMS.
@zeba • 14 Apr, 2008 i find korth, which is same as silberschatz, best for many topics in DBMS.chapter 3 of navathe is better than the corresponding topic in korth. functional dependency and normalization is best given in Navathe. so refer both. I have oracle university's introduction to Oracle9i:SQL student guide. It teaches u in the minimum possible time. very easy to learn quickly from that. Complete reference of oracle is too detailed and so good when u have patience.every topic is given in much depth.might help.
@Er_divvy • 15 Apr, 2008 😁hi buy korth dtabase syayems if you want its softcopy i wiil mail it to you.
@devesh • 15 Apr, 2008 oh! that would be a great help.
you can mail me the soft copy on deveshsrivastava@rkgit.edu.in

@devesh • 17 Apr, 2008 hey Er Divvy!!!!!!!!!! i am waiting for the soft copy.

Devesh
