Clarifying Normalization
Carpenter, Donald A.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v19 n4 p379-382 2008
Confusion exists among database textbooks as to the goal of normalization as well as to which normal form a designer should aspire. This article discusses such discrepancies with the intention of simplifying normalization for both teacher and student. This author's industry and classroom experiences indicate such simplification yields quicker learning and more complete understanding by students. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
