2. Analyze each relationship to determine if it is 1:1, 1:M, or M:N.
3. Normalize your designs for all tables to ensure they are 3NF, and verify that all primary, secondary, and foreign keys are identified properly. Update your ERD to reflect any changes.
4. Review the Data Dictionary you created in Chapter 5 and double-check all data dictionary entries. Make sure that the entries for data stores, records, and data elements are documented completely and correctly. Determine what codes, if any, will be used and be sure they are documented in the data dictionary.
