    What exactly do you want to know about database design?

    RMDB?
    Normalization?
    Scalability?
    Designing for Performance?
    Dealing with 250m+ records?

    There are many different thought processes depending on what you are doing with the database and the structure. IE: Website framework database VS large scale data warehouse. Both use different architectures, layouts and theories. One may be normalized Boyce-Codd Normal Form (BCNF) 3NF, 4NF where Data warehouses may not normalize anything and have HUGE single records.

    Job interview. I basically just need the basics that an interview might involve.

    Pointing me in a rude way. You really think I've never heard of google and that wasnt' the first thing I checked out? I came here incase there is something like a Silberschatz for databases that I HAVE to read because it WILL be in an interview.

    it's a pretest. The job has TERRIBLE pay for the field so I'm sure they intend to train someone up, but I still need to get through the pre test.

    You have zero experience, so expect to to get paid accordingly.

    If the job has an hourly rate, how many people with experience would you expect? I expect to be paid the shitty posted rate.

    And thanks for the links. They are really informative!!
