Overview/Description
This course covers how to complete a logical database design and how to implement the physical database. After the requirements are gathered from the organization and the conceptual ERD has been approved, you will learn that the logical design model consists of taking the conceptual diagram and converting it to represent the logical implementation of the database. In this course, you will learn about identifying the entities, attributes, and the relationships that will exist and about normalizing the database to remove redundant information. You will also learn about creating tables, choosing columns and their specifications, and determining indexes and views.

Target Audience
People who want to get an understanding of the concepts and practices involved in designing relational databases

Prerequisites
