Normalization is the process of removing redundant data from your tables in order to improve storage efficiency, data integrity and scalability. There are three basic forms of normalization. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.
For more you can google with the words "3NF" or "Third Normailzation Form". You will get lot of results explaining this term.

Well, I have got something simple and straight.
Third normal form (3NF) goes one large step further: - Meet all the requirements of the second normal form. - Remove columns that are not dependent upon the primary key.
