It would seem absolutely basic that the index has the page numbers for commands. It doesn't, even for something as basic as SELECT. The information is in there, but given that it's supposed to be a "pocket reference", it's time-consuming to find it. I'll probably end up putting marker tabs into the book to use it.

The pocket guides by O'Reilly are not really learning aids but instead offer a quick reference to things the authors presumes you should know.

This guide offers the most common MySQL commands in a friendly and easy to read format, the book also offers guides on how to work with MySQL as well as giving an overview of the language in general.

Good for those who tend to forget !

This is a handy little textbook that serves as a reminder when one is working with MySQL Databases. My only problem is the scanty index provided for it. Sure it's meant to tiny but a few more pages to accommodate a more useful index would not hurt portability since it's barely 132 pages. For some of the most important MySQL commands the only way to find them them is to flip through the book since they do not apear on the table of contents either partially defeating the purpose which is to access MySQL statements quickly.

However due to the small size, the book still offers fast access to commonly used statements, and can help accelerate development by placing commonly used statements at one's fingertips. Despite being very small the Author offers brief explainations of data types, how to add users, etc. It has a page on mysql command-line utility. So all in all, a very useful book.

These reference books are great for stuffing in your pocket as you rush for the bus in the morning. MySQL Pocket Reference , being a particularly good example. MySQL , the language , has many variants or versions , resulting in instant obsolescence on publication.
Pocket books are the best option when trying to remember the syntax of 90% of SQL functions .
Great wee book.
