Looking for a good book to help me brush up on my database skills

I've been working with SQL and RDBMSes for a number of years, but my most recent job involved no DB work at all. Understandably, I'm a bit rusty. So I'd like to get a good book to help me brush up, and also to learn a bit more about RDBMS technology. What would you recommend?

My ideal book :
1) Would be useful as a reference, but also have some tutorial aspects, especially for advanced topics
2) Covers basic SQL, but also advanced topics like indexing, clustering, normalization, denormalization, and performance tuning
3) Possibly has some "problems" or study questions I could practice on
If there's no one book that fulfills these requirements, perhaps you could recommend a couple?
