Designing a database is not difficult, but this book has a couple of chapters on how a database design needs to reflect the business needs of the organization. In essense, here is some of the background that needs to be considered before the actual work of laying out the database is done. This area is often missed in those books that are so oriented to the teckie approach.
After these sections, which take up about one third of the book, the remainder of the book is on T-SQL. This is not an exhaustive coverage, but is very well suited for the person's first introduction to SQL. For instance, the SQL IF statement is mentioned only briefly. ==The CD provided with the book that includes sample files that are developed and used throughout the book.
