Hello friends. I come to you with another noob-level question. You see I've never normalised any table up to BCNF. I have drawn up some tables for my assignment, could you help me normalise them to BCNF, please? Here are just two of them:

Lecturer(Lecturer_ID, Date_Hired)
Consultant(Consultant_ID, Full_Name, Address, Phone, Hourly_Rate)

Please, please help.

Isn't there any connection between the two tables?
I mean can a consultant be a lecturer? or vice-versa?

Oh, hi Nimesh! How are you doing? Once again you save me. Well, Lecturer and Consultant aren't related. Consultant actually refers to external consultants who have participated in administrative projects by the college. Those two tables are part of many more entities. Consultant is actually related to Admin_Project while Lecturer is related to the Academic_Department entity.

These look pretty simple ones, I don't see any issue for not being in BCNF form.
