    You'll need to explain what "Real-Time requirements" are before we can tell you how complex these would be.

    In that case the complexity depends on the project, the thing you are modelling.

    What do you know of data modelling? Have you taken any courses, read any books?

    yeah, I went throught Data Modelling training and I have been practising the requirements that are found in the DATABASE CONCEPTS & DESIGN (DBFORUMS) forum. But people are telling me that the requirements would be more complex and involve many tables. So, I just wanted to know like how complex would they be?

    Not always. More than once I have had something scratched on a cocktail napkin by a boss.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Again, that depends on the project.

    If you want to practice then I would suggest you chose to model something familiar to you. The tricky part of modelling IMHO is catching all the little quirks of the subject, and to do this you need something real that you know. This could be as simple as making a database for your CDs (this innocuous sounding project can get more complex than it sounds) to modelling part of your employer's business. Alternatively, you might know someone running a small business that would like a database to help them out.

    I find that sort of thing more difficult than the fully compliant, responsive client.

    Also, I am going to move this to the Database Concepts and Design forum - it does not really belong here.
