Dear All,

I really want to learn SQL Database Design thoroughly.
Are their any good books or online web sites where i can learn and get expertize in it.

I have my lab setup as well with few SQL servers but really want to know the industry best practices in sql design etc.

Thx

H.

Hello,

You could take a look at the TechNet Best Practices pages:

You are talking about learning database design; this is refreshing and believe me when I say I like your approach -too many people are already doing stuff they have no clue about.

SQL Server is just one of a bunch of RDBMS therefore think about relational database design instead of SQL Server design.

I would say there are three areas you want to get in touch, just Google the words and you are going to find lots of free public domain documents in the net.

1- Relational Theory -Relational Model.
2- Data Modeling -Entity/Relationship modeling.
3- Data Normalization -You want to stop at the 3NF.

Good luck and please don't hesitate in posting any doubts you may have.
