    Get a good book on DBS (database systems). For example: "Database Systems Concepts" by Korth and Silberschatz "Database Management Systems" by Ramakrishnan "Principles of Database Systems" by Ulman They should give you a good overview of the relational model e.g.

    Nowhereman is right. You should really get a solid understanding of design concepts and principles first. I just started throwing databases together for data persistence and never took the time to understand the why of good design. I still regret that, I haven't gone back to figure it all out yet. =)

    You should start by gettin a good database book, like "Principles of Database Systems" by ULMAN, thus I may recommend to start just scrolling around Access, is a basic database program :)

    A good undestanding of Set Theory is essential in the study of Database. A good book I recommend is "Fundamentals of Database Systems" (4th Edition) by Remez Elmasri and Shamkant B. Navathe.

    The best way to start studying database is to study Microsoft Access first and then study SQL Server / Oracle for more.

    best is to use MS Access and Excel, its easy to understand RDBMS and SQL queries.

    Do you want to plug data into a keyboard or learn database? If you want the former, any database will do e.g. access, sql, ... If you want the latter, learn set theory and read the book I recommended.
