mySQL: Change Field value

Hi,

    I have a Table, with a bunch of fields. Two of them are displayed below:

        DESC                      BAT
        BUL 123                 12.09765
        CIRC 675                99.05672
        TER 356                  1.967543
        BUL 178                 17.09665
        CIRC 626                71.04472
        etc etc

I need to change the value of BAT to another value, but only if DESC = BUL or CIRC. i.e. If DESC = CIRC, or DESC = BUL, then BAT = 4.2356 etc.

Can anyone show me how to make that happen in PHPmyAdmin SQL, please.

Thanks.
