Database System and Concepts

The most awaited and "the" most important subject for a year to go by. All concepts are simple and straight forward. They need to be remembered and thought about to get an idea how they would actually work. The are basically the foundation of many softwares like a foundation for a building. The second part includes learning of Relational Algebra, a method to understand how queries can be built up and from there moving to SQL or Structured Query Language. It is not a programming language, but a query language, categorized under declarative languages. (Procedural is C). Commands might appear a bit different in logic than relational algebra but the idea remains the same. Constant practice of it is VERY ESSENTIAL.
