Experience shows that students are experiencing success in the practical aspects of the course, especially in recent coursework tasks. However, what could be considered routine knowledge and understanding questions are proving more problematic than perhaps they should. Consequently, here are a series of Flash Cards on the key points in Relational Databses that you are likely to experience in the final exam.
