Overview

This is the eBook version of the print title and does not include the CD or DVD accompanying the print version of the book.

 

This is the official guide to passing the two MySQL certification tests for MySQL 5, the long-awaited major revision of MySQL. The number of MySQL certification exams taken has doubled in the last six months.

 

Certcities.com lists the MySQL certification as one of the top 10 certifications to grow in 2005. MySQL professionals need a way to distinguish themselves from the vast majority of database administrators and developers. With more than 4 million active installations, MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database. Known for its speed, reliability and case of use, MySQL has become a low-cost alternative to expensive database systems such as Oracle, IBM and Microsoft. MySQL AB has aggressively improved the feature set of MySQL with MySQL 5, making it more suitable for enterprise-level applications and uses. The MySQL certification tests, available at over 3,000 PearsonVUE testing centers, is a key component of this enterprise growth strategy, establishing a base level of skills for database users, administrators and programmers.

 

The MySQL Core Certification is aimed at the database user who wants proof of his or her abilities in such fundamental areas as SQL, data entry and maintenance, and data extraction. The MySQL Professional Certification test is designed for the advanced user who wants to prove his or her knowledge in such areas as database management, installation, security, disaster prevention and optimization. Both tests are thoroughly covered in the MySQL 5.0 Certification Study Guide . Written by Paul DuBois, the leading author of books on MySQL topics, and reviewed for technical accuracy by MySQL AB, this book is the fastest, most reliable way for MySQL users, developers, and administrators to prepare for either of the MySQL tests.

Simply incredible ! Loaded with pertinent information ! This Study Guide clearly presents everything you'll need to pass 310-810 & 310-811 ! (Those are the DBA tests. It also covers the Developer Tests, which I did not attempt.) All the nuances of MySQL 5.x are conveyed with useful examples. It also introduces some nuances - you won't need for the test, but you will want to know to fill the MySQL DBA role, and clearly identifies those items as such ! { As as side note, Sun Certified MySQL DBA (transitioned to Oracle Certified Professional MySQL DBA) is a pre-requisite to Sun Certified Cluster MySQL DBA (transitioned to Oracle Certified Expert for MySQL Cluster DBA). The Sun/Oracle websites identify: MySQL 5.1 Cluster Certification Study Guide Jon Stephens, Mike Kruckenberg, Roland Bouman, Stewart Smith, Solomon Chang ISBN: 978-1-8479916-8-3 as preparation material for 310-815...only that does not exist on THIS PLANET. After weeks of searching, and ordering, only to get emails 'order cancelled - not available' I finally scored. When the product finally arrived, the back cover indicates ISBN: 978-0-595-35250-0 !!! It was indeed composed by the authors listed above. This info is provided as anonymous GOOD DEED for those pursuing MySQL Cluster Cert ! } Study dilligently and you will succeed. As Bon Jovi put it, 'Luck aint even lucky, gotta make your own breaks !' Peace be with you.
