4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect addition to a student's or developer's library, 30 July 2004
This review is from: MySQL Certification Study Guide (Paperback)
The MYSQL Certification Study Guide is an ideal book for many types of readers, more than just someone preparing for the Certification exams.
Those who are studying for the MySQL Certification Exams will find this book indispensable, and enable them to be sure that they're clued up on each of the areas which the exam covers. Students will find that the book outlines the weighting of each section, so you don't spend 90% of your time on a chapter which will only make up 10% of the example. It carefully explains the things you need to know, but won't leave you concerned over whether a topic is covered or not, and to what detail.
With someone of a purely practical working knowledge of MySQL as a database language, perhaps working with PHP or another scripting language, the additional chapters in the book, and indeed exam sections, could be fairly new to you. Perhaps installing the server software is not a common task you perform, or you have very limited knowledge of precisely who MySQL AB are, the book again covers these topics and more to expand your knowledge on these exam essentials.
Additionally, for those readers who may have picked this book up in the hope that it would provide a useful reference manual, you won't be disappointed; you'll find a handy reference section towards the back of the book. Although, this book is best read from cover to cover. Even if you're not studying for a certification exam, you'll find useful functionality that you weren't aware that MySQL provided.
This book is the perfect companion to anyone who wants to improve their MySQL skills, whether for official recognition, or simply personal and professional gain.
