I recently took an intro class for MySQL from www.oreillyschool.com and it was very helpful. The next class they offer is administering MySQL but I currently work with SQL Server. The first class was centered around writing queries and for the most part everything transferred over to SQL Server. I don't think the Admin class is going to be beneficial for me.
Does anyone have any recommendation for an online/self-paced class that has actual assignments to do? The O'Reilly school actually has a teacher that gives you a pass or fail for each assignment which I really liked. Their classes are about $500 so something in that price range would be great.
Also I do not want to do the community college route.
