Hi Lynn,
(From TOC) In chapter 7 you have covered up to 3 rd Normal Form. What about the other normal forms used in the database design? It should be interesting if you have covered that as well.

I made the decision to stop at 3NF, since that's generally sufficient. But I believe if you really understand up to 3NF, picking up an advanced database design book will be better for you.
