Warning: There are two books called Database Systems. The other is published by Course Technology and quite different. Part of this book was used for INFX 543 this year.
New or used (if available) books will work equally well for this course.
Note the Kindle versions and rental versions sometimes are often missing resources like Appendices and sample files, BUT we can generally work around that by me adding the materials to the Web site – so let me know if that happens.
- PDFs included in the modules
