1.0 out of 5 stars Frustration 29 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
"When you only have time for the answers..." claims the attractive strapline on this book. Wanting to go from being an absolute novice to being able to construct a simple database, this book sold itself as fitting the bill. However, within chapter 1 & 2 there was that very familiar sinking feeling when the instructions in the book did not yield the results they claimed they would, when typed into my PC. Hunting down files of example databases on the SAMs website (which were critical for working through examples throughout the book) was far from time-efficient, since they had evidently altered from when described in the book. Moreover, the promised instructions (for setting up these files) were not in evidence at all after an hour or two searching through the downloaded files (once found). Basically, I got stuck, because of differences between what was on the SAMs website by way of support files and what was said in the book. The point here is that, while being PC literate, I was a novice in SQL world, with a completely new IT package which meant i did not know how to unstick myself. (I thought my situation was the problem being solved by the book, not reinforced!)

So - what ensued from this purchase was a total waste of time, a waste of a tenner and a waste of effort. I got frustrated to boiling point by this thoughlessly constructed book that needs to either make clear buyers should be competent enough with the environment to navigate these differences - or better still - to ensure that its advice is robust enough to allow true novices to truly get up and running. This was a really bad experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad. If you have used MySQL already... 6 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
It's not a good book for someone who doesn't know anything about MySQL or that have never attempted using it. At least the prior usage of some sort of AMP stack is probably a good idea - whether this be running a CMS/Blog or similar.

It is however quite good for brushing you up on your MySQL and learning the vast functions that are available.

If you already know a bit and want a quick hard copy reference book, then it may be for you. If you do not; then I would not buy it, you will most probably find that it falls short of your expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars My SQL Fast Reference 11 April 2013
By D. Galusha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a good extended pocket guide. Not comprehensive to be sure but it has many common usages for the various situations. Layout is easy to access and the font/type size is clear and readable. I commend SAMS for such a useful book. I recommend for anyone getting started in SQL.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good experience for the novice 29 Mar 2013
By DillionPlayer104 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love that this book covers the free MySQL. And, in this case, you get far more than what you pay for. If you want to get your feet wet with SQL there's few better ways to do it. Why, Oh, Why didn't they have this back in the early 90's!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Reference - 5 yrs in 7 April 2012
By ToryT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been reading this book for the past 5 years and feel it is one of the best "to the point" books, that I've come across. Whenever I take a year off, I pick this book up and feel like I'm right back where I left off after a couple days.
Thanks to the Author!!
5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet 26 Aug 2011
By sinbad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I disagree enough with a couple of the other reviews that I decided to chime in. I found this to be a kick butt little MySQL primer. I just completed a couple-day LAMP project (where phpMyAdmin alone wouldn't save me this time), and this book provided me with enough information to get 'er done.

It's short and to the point. You can (literally) read a couple chapters in a few minutes.

Consider it a quick and handy complement piece to the official, online documentation.

3.0 out of 5 stars it is out of date (using mysql 4.0) 14 Sep 2007
By Zhou - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is based on MySQL 4.0 and some commands don't work on the new version. And this book also has lots of errors. For example, some code (products table)of the sampdb is missing in Appendix B. And it also misses some details so that you have to solve them by yourself.Interesting though.
