1-0 out of 5 stars Serriously flawed
I found this book to be seriously flawed in the following ways:
3-0 out of 5 stars Some of the foundation is good, but with problematic gaps
I am a newbie to MySQL/PHP. Truly. Many reviews of the O'Reilly series clearly have extensive backgrounds in programming. I do not: I had a little HTML under my belt, that's it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for learning the basics
Learning PHP & MySQL is a detailed guide to building a database-driven web site.The authors do an excellent job of starting from the beginning, assuming no prior knowledge of either PHP or MySQL.In fact the only assumptions that the authors seem to make is that you have a very basic understanding of HTML.After working through the book and the detailed examples anyone should be able to write basic programs the meet common needs as well as create and interface with a MySQL database.Some of the programming areas covered in the book include decision making, working with arrays, using functions, database design fundamentals (missing in most books), getting PHP to talk to MySQL, modifying objects and data, and security.At the end of the book the reader ends up with a complete example application.

1-0 out of 5 stars Simply badly designed for exams
I believe that the writers made some bad choices when they first began to write this book. First of all, unlike most other certification books the exam goals are not together in one section. Instead there are whole chapters for queries, indexes, views, etc with all of the information about each topic in that chapter. So if you wanted to read about 'query optimization' you would have to read the sections within that chapter about query optimation from the queries chapter, from the index chapter, some from the views chapter, etc. So if you want to review a specific topic that you are not as good at you will be doing a lot of page flipping.
4-0 out of 5 stars This Won't Prepare You For 70-229 But a Good Starting Point.
This book is a very easy read, explains concepts clearly, but lacks the kind of detail necessary for passing the 70-229 exam, especially if you are taking this as an elective on the developer track. It will get you through most of what you need to know at 10,000 feet, but it will not take you to a passing score. It taught me things I had never used and for that it is well worth the time investment. I also love the fact that you can install the "e-book" on a laptop and a desktop at home and never carry the hard cover book around.

Editorial Review

This is the rare case of a book that can take you from a beginner to an advanced-intermediate level. Likemany of the books in IDG's Dummies series, this volume begins with a definition ("What is SQL?") andends with "The Part of Tens," a collection of tips in a top ten list form. Taylor writes in a breezy,entertaining style that SQL novices will find inviting. One caveat: The examples are given in Borland'sDelphi, a rapid application development (RAD) tool. Some sections show several screen shots from Delphiand it may be difficult to follow along in these sections if you don't have the program in front of you. Aswith other Dummies books, Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A proper start in SQL, nothing more
About a year ago, I was writing up a series of lessons for a course in Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) that I was preparing for a local business. As is always the case, they needed the course right away, so I had little time to prepare the lessons. To illustrate what can be done using JDBC, I used the executeQuery() method of the Statement object. The executeQuery() method accepts an SQL command as input, so it was necessary for me to quickly brush up on SQL commands. This is the book I reached for to get myself back to speed on SQL commands. Like all ""For Dummies" books, it can be used to quickly learn the basics of the topic, although it has little use beyond the beginning. I found it adequate for my needs at the time, although when I needed to delve deeper into SQL for a later course, I went elsewhere.
1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely terrible
I have read several books in the Dummies series and found them all excellent, so when it was time to learn SQL for a programming project I got this one immediately.
5-0 out of 5 stars Shipped in a very short time
This book was shipped to us in a very short period of time.We were very pleased with this purchase. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great pocket reference, 2nd edition WITH INDEX now
This small booklet "ORACLE PL/SQL Language Pocket Reference" in this new 2nd edition is exactly what you need as PL/SQL (PL/SQL is the ORACLE procedural language extension of SQL) programmer (and is even more important for casual PL/SQL programmer).1-0 out of 5 stars anO'REILLY flop
Where's the index??A REFERENCE is something you pick up to find a particular needed peice of information. Without an index you have to scan everywhere trying to find what you are looking for.What a waste of time!Dont' even waste the 10 bucks for this piece of junk...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice, compact, but it really needs an index!
A good sidekick for when you have a mental lapse, unfortunately they seem to have forgot to print the index.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Database Design and Optimization "must-have"....
I highly recommend this book to anyone working with SQL Server 2005. The material presented is made more understandable (not to mention entertaining!) by the examples used by the author throughout the book.The new features for SQL Server 2005 that the author covers are very relevant to my job, especially Chapter 7, Securing Access to the Data.The continuity of the material presented is excellent.Each chapter serves as a reference guide to complex topics that the author successfully explains through a combination of expertise, experience and a sense of humor.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great read
This book is very well written and does a good job explaining new functionality and design of SQL 2005 as well as contrasting with SQL 2000 implementation.Definitely a book to add to your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have
I have the 2000 version of this book, which I thought was outstanding. Not only does it have excellent content, but it's written as if you were sitting at a table talking to Mr. Davidson directly.

5-0 out of 5 stars A bible for those using SQL 2005
Some people commented on the poor editing: typos & some wrong pictures. True. (It detracts, but you can figure it out easily)
4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful to a Point
I BOUGHT THIS BOOK HOPING IT WOULD GIVE ME SOME INSIGHT AND BACKGROUND TO BEGIN USING 2005, AND IT DID JUST THAT. SEEMS TO GO INTO THE "MATH" A BIT TOO MUCH, AND MOST WAS OVER MY HEAD. COULD HAVE USED A BIT MORE ABOUT THE MMC AND HOW TO USE THAT TO BETTER USE, BUT ALL IN ALL A BOOK THAT IS GOOD FOR MY LIBRRAY. F ANYONE KNOWS OF A GOOD RESOURCE ON USING THE MMC IN SQL2K5 LET ME KNOW:-)

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent Book
At the time I'm writing this review this book is the only one available dedicated solely to the data mining features of SQL Server 2005. The book is good, but I was disappointed in it as well on three fronts. First, there is a chapter dedicated to each of the data mining algorithms. I didn't find the business use case examples for when, why, and how to use each algorithm sufficient. Second, each of the algorithm chapters goes off the deep-end explaining the mathematical basis for the algorithm. There are very, very few developers who are going to remember enough of their college mathematics to follow along. Third, the technical coverage of how to use the APIs and the data mining extension language (DMX) is superficial, particularly with DMX. After reading this book cover to cover I couldn't go off and write a DMX query if I wanted to. On the application I'm working on we are planning to implement our own web visualization viewers for the data mining algorithms. This book didn't give me what I needed in understanding the object model exposed by the APIs in order to handle the back-end coding for this. All in all, if you are planning to do data mining with SQL Server 2005 I would recommend this book only because at the time of this writing there is nothing else available. However, you will learn quite a bit about data mining with it and depending on your prior experience (more is better) it might be an excellent fit for you. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas for Advanced Sites
"ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips" isn't really a reference guide or your standard tutorial manual.Rather, it's more like a cookbook - "here are some interesting things you can do in ASP.NET 2.0 and here's how to do them."

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, with numerous helpful examples
First, I should mention that I got this book in Dec. 2000 and had no trouble installing the disk on Windows98.Hopefully the problem pointed about by another reviewer has been resolved.Incidentally, I find the SOLID server very easy to set up and use, with a simple but friendly user interface.OK, now for the book.It is very clear and includes numerous detailed examples, along with step-by-step discussion as to why the syntax works the way it does.This is particularly helpful when grouping, subqueries, joins, etc., or combinations thereof are involved.Sometimes he'll solve a problem in more than one way, which is good to see.Occasionally, too, like a good teacher he will have a snare for the unwary and go on to say, "Wait, this isn't working the way intended," and use the pitfall as a way of bringing home a point. Another thing I like is the adaptation of Backus-Naur Form that he uses in specifying languages -- if you've never seen BNF before (which included me before reading this book), that may sound a little daunting.Actually, it makes correct usage really clear.One more thing to mention about this book is its excellent range of topics without bogging down on them.In addition to covering the core keywords "select", "from", "where", and so forth, he talks about imbedded SQL (which I rely on heavily when I use VB or work on web pages), stored procedures, and what ODBC is, to mention only a few extra topics.Finally, the translator should be commended for readable, fluent English.

2-0 out of 5 stars WARNING !!!
The disk supplied with the book (contains the database to work the exercises) will not easily install on Windows NT.I have contacted the author (via e-mail) and the database manufacturer for more installationinstructions but have not yet received any help.Without the informationon the supplied disk the learning process is less than complete.

I ordered this book through amazon.com when there where no reviews-- tooka chance and did it ever pay off.So now i'm writing a review for the nextguy who is looking for a good book to get HANDS-ON sql experience with.You should have some understanding of relational databases and abasicunderstanding of sql to get the maximum from this book, but that's notnecessary, first time sql self-teachers stand to benefit greatly from italso.I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to gain furtherunderstanding of SQL and relational databases. ...

Mike Owens started writing about SQLite in Linux Magazine and C/C++ User's Journal, and he continues to show his clear and easy manner of explaining the features and use of this embedded database in this book, which Apress binds as a hardcover to show off its usefulness and longevity.

SQLite is extremely comprehensive.The book is very thorough, and I highly recommend it if you are considering the use of a non-server database management system.

Definitive is definitely the right title for this book.It coverseverything from the SQLite console commands to the interpreter language bindings (Tcl, Perl, Ruby, etc) to the C API.I've been using SQLite for several years, and learned new stuff before I hit page 30.

MDX Solutions is an essential reference book for anyone using Analysis Services 2005. No other book covers the subject as thoroughly as this one. However, it remains only a reference book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still quite relevant for Sybase developers
Although there aren't too many Sybase databases anymore, quite a few firms (esp. in Finance) have them and if you find yourself working with Sybase I strongly recommend this book. It's been a great. The sections on Error handling (Ch.9), transactions and locking (Ch.11) and built-in Functions (Ch.12) have been invaluable over the years.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource for T-SQL information
I purchased my copy back in 1999 and it is one of my favorite SQL books.I find the information very accurate and relevant to the MS SQL versions (6.5 & 7.0) printed on the cover of the book.I think it was the best SQL book for many years.Since 1999, many books for newer versions of database servers have been published.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book with easy-to-find answers to your questions
Judging from the other reviews here, people either love this book or they hate it.I love it.This book has proved invaluable to me over the years, and I still reference it on occassion.Whenever I have a question about something, the answer is easy to find.It *is* out of date, as other reviewers have noted, but the majority of information contained within is still valid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not cover the important new features
I bought the book, based on previous positive critics here (Amazon).The implication was that this book covers the new features of SQL Server 2005.Well, the first one that I was looking for, the PIVOT (crosstab) is not even mentioned, let alone covered even briefly.I did not search all the new features, but if you want a book that cover both old and new features, this one is certainly NOT the one that you should look for.
5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Usable
The authors have experience both as T-SQL developers and trainers, and it shows. Essential concepts and techniques are explained clearly without talking down to the reader. There's thorough coverage of the most commonly used T-SQL elements, in an easy-to-read style. It's well organized and includes appendices and a good index, making it easy to use as a reference. I work with both SQL Server 2000 and 2005, so it's ideal that the book covers both environments.

I don't consider myself a techie but recently became interested in learning more about SQL and how it can help me do my job more efficiently. I found the structure, content and style of this book to be very useful in my quest to teach myself the program. It was easy to understand and helped me to learn the basics with a hands-on approach. My lack of experience caught up to me in some of the later chapters but overall I found the book extremely informative and I've benefited greatly from reading it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU (NOVICE TO EXPERIENCED)
ATTN:If you are a beginner, or if you just want to brush up on your MYSQL skills, then this is the book.I also purchased two other MYSQL books but they are not half as easy to read as this.Ben Forta is technical but explains everything in such a way that anyone could learn this stuff.He provides detailed examples in this book as well as well as GOOD explanations of how the code is to be used and why.THIS IS A VERY QUICK READING BOOK AND IF YOU NEED TO LEARN FAST, THEN WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR... BUY THE CHEAP BOOK!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ben Forta is G-d
Ben Forta is easily the most readable and to-the-point technical writer I know of. He includes all the right details at the right time. Example: all the books tell you how to do selects and how to create databases and tables, but the bury the simple detail of how to CONNECT to a database. Do you have any idea how many sql books neglect this extraordinarily important point? In ben's book it's right up front. And that's only one example. Buy the book for yourself and see.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good start but missing many parts
This is a good starter book, and I bought it thinking it would be a good supplement to O'Reilly's Learning SQL version. Since I started with the O'Reilly version first, this book was relatively useless to me.

Editorial Review

Good programming--which is to say, programming that yields both efficient code and a profitable life for the programmer--depends on not reinventing the wheel. If someone else has solved the problem you're facing (and someone almost always has), you'd be foolish to waste your energy figuring out your own solution. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars MySQL For Applications Server
Excellent text well written and logical sequencing of chapters.
5-0 out of 5 stars Solves a lot of problems! (That's how it's organized)
I had a recent perl+mysql project and flipped between the Cookbook and the author's other work, MySQL, mentioned in other reviews.( also referred to the O'Reilly Perl books _Programming Perl_ and _Perl for System Administration_.I don't usually have time to master any topic or skillset; I need to get in, get it going, and move on.This book is perfect for that."How do I get the date?"There's a recipe for that."How do I get perl to connect to the database and insert stuff?" There's a recipe.Also for PHP, python, etc.It's really focused on problem solving, and the problems are really well chosen.This book will save you hours of effort.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lucky Me!
I am a big fan of hands-on books.I especially like the `From Scratch` and `Cookbook` type titles.

5-0 out of 5 stars No peer.
I use(d) this book as the basis towards my WIN2K MCDBA...It is superior to anything out there including Microsoft's Official MCSE [Exam 70-228] SQL Server 2000 SA Training Kit... includes everything one needs assuming one immerses oneself in the book from Day 1 through Day 21 in addition to Day 22 (SQL Server Analysis Services (OLAP)) and Day 23 (English Query).It is both a superior reference book and programmer's guide. After purchasing Microsoft's official references I found myself repeatedly (frustrated by their shortcomings and referring back to this particular SAMS text). Enough cannot be said about this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars I liked the book
The book was ok. It has taught me a lot. However, it is not without its easily seen errors.
5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT Book
I have a LOT of access experience and wanted to move to SQL Server.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very good information, leaves more to be desired
I found myself wanting more when it came time to try the practice exam questions.The book comes with PDF's that serve as the practice exam.What I expected was software that would simulate the test.I'm taking the DBA class next month and I don't expect any issues passing the exam, though I would feel more comfortable forking out the $ to take it if I had a wider pool of questions to study from.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough
This is an excellent book covering MySQL in great detail.
5-0 out of 5 stars Exam voucher not honored for MySQL 5 exams! (but great book)
I love this book, but I am outraged that VUE refuses to honor the included voucher code for MySQL 5 exams.The book is targeted for MySQL 5, and the text in the book clearly states the voucher is for ANY MySQL exam.But VUE claims the included voucher is only valid for MySQL 4 exams.

5-0 out of 5 stars SQL RS Beyond the basics (and some basics too)
If you're a moderately skilled programmer, a self-learner, and you want to get beyond just "getting started" deploying and using Sql Server 2000 Reporting Services, this is the book for you.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and surprisingly good.
For a total beginner (which I definately was) this is a FANTASTIC introduction to Reporting Services. Three months after starting my first job as a programmer straight out of University, and now I'm the main person in the firm with Reporting Services knowledge - and it's all thanks to this book.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good for developers
This book has been written from a VB programmers point of view. If you want to just start creating reports or if you're not a VB programmer (ie DBA etc) you may find this hard work.As another reviewer mentioned, you may find the authors' jokes and writing style to be a hit and miss affair.
