If you studied this book


you may want to wait on taking a Certification Exam. Why ?

I certified with that book back in August 2007, when MySQL 5.0.27 was the latest version.

I have mentioned this book in some of my posts

Notwithstanding, so much has changed since then.

For Example, these things are not mentioned in this old book

These are available in MySQL 5.6.23 (Current GA Release). It is in your best interest to read the MySQL 5.6 Documentation first.

When you do get the new book


read it through but be prepared to send it back if it is just a verbatim quote of the MySQL Documentation.

Whether you keep the book or not is your choice. Nevertheless, read the latest info for MySQL 5.6, get decent hands-on experience with MySQL 5.6 (at least 1 year). Then, take the exam.
