Great book, beware of the CD
on 9 July 2015
This book contains a lot of very useful information, and the topics covered are very comprehensive, That is what makes up the 3 stars. If I was reviewing the book on its own it would probably get 4 or 5, but the reason for the lower mark is the practice exam.
I use SQL on a daily basis at work, and upon deciding to take this exam I ordered the book. After a fairly light read through, I decided to take the practice test on the CD to see where i was. All in all I took the practice test 4 times, and never scored below 92%.
So, based on this I booked the exam and went into it thinking I had it in the bag. Oh how wrong I was, the practice exam in on a completely different level to the real exam. My advice to anyone reading this is to buy the book, for sure, but make sure the first thing you do is throw the CD in the bin, and just concentrate on working through the syllabus.
