It should be carried out for every database you design, and it's really not that hard,… even though yes, when you first start reading about database…normalization, you're likely to run into phrases like "your database won't be…in third normal form until every non- prime attribute of R is non-transitively…dependent (i.e. directly dependent) on every candidate key of R," but you don't…have to get into all this language.…You just have to understand these were a set of rules developed about 40 years…ago by E.
