I remember reading another book from C.J Date some time ago: SQL and Relational Theory. At that time I was simply put off by the content as I thought it was no use from the pratical point of view. This time, I would write different review, and this is due to reading Relational Theory for Computer Professionals. For the details, read on. Full Review >

A good book for some people who are interested in Relational Database, and who want to know what exactly Relational Database is all about. Anyway, readers should have a basic about relational database. If You don't have... you should read other books from C.J. Date before. Why I said like that, I think this book not easy to read if you don't have basic and no idea about relational database. By the way, you might read "Free Sampler" before.
In a book, after you finished for reading each chapter you can see exercise to help you to improve your understanding, that's very cool anyway. This book is useful to use in college, but I think that should be advance course because it need basic about relational database and sql. Full Review >
