5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a MySQL programmer? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors Guy Harrison and Steven Feuerstein, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that will help MySQL practitioners realize the full potential of MySQL stored programs.
5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute Necessity For MySQL Developers
'MySQL Stored Procedure Programming' by Guy Harrison is a wonderful book for any MySQL developers out there in the world.With the release my MySQL 5.0, stored procedures/functions and triggers were finally added, making MySQL a real-world database that could successfully compete with SQL Server and Oracle.While nowhere near as bloated as those 2 behemoths, MySQL has a rich, loyal following that loves this 'little database that could', but until the latest version, what it could do was good, but not good enough for many people.
4-0 out of 5 stars an excellent book
Having worked in java and oracle with pl/sql some time ago, I'm in the "probably better not to use stored procedures" camp for most environments - but now that mysql offers them, I figured it was best to see how they tackled the problem and this o'reilly book looked good by authors with good credentials. And, fortunately, O'Reilly didn't let me down - they've had really strong offerings recently after a bit of a bad spell and this book was no exception.

5-0 out of 5 stars DB2(R) SQL PL: Essential Guide for DB2(R) UDB on Linux(TM), UNIX(R), Windows(TM), i5/OS(TM), and z/OS(R) (2nd Edition
Has been extremely helpful. Good information

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good book on DB2 SQL PL
I didn't know anything about writing DB2 stored procedures until I bought this book. After reading it I have written several procedures to aid in data migration. It is well laid out and has all the necessary information. The best part is that you don't feel like you are reading a technical book.

4-0 out of 5 stars embed yourself in db2
The book describes IBM's Procedural Language, which runs on their db2 servers. It is not a general purpose language, like C or Java. Rather, it is tied directly to db2 and IBM's implementation of SQL. But within this context, the book explains the expressive power of PL. It shows at length how you can write stored procedures, triggers and functions in PL. The level of detail and the cited examples should reassure you of PL's capability.

3-0 out of 5 stars useful, but has factual errors (partly Microsoft's fault)
OK, I'm modifying this since some of the RAID confusion seems to have originated in the MSDN docs, rather than with the author.
3-0 out of 5 stars Use as a Sudy Guide
This is a lightweight book designed to be easily carried with you. The size is such that your palm can almost fit the whole book. It uses cheap newsprints for its pages which make it lighter than it would normally have. It has a little more than 330 pages but the main part has 220 pages, the rest are for the practice tests and answers.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Pretty Good Introduction and Sample Exams
This is a book designed purely to get you a passing grade on the Microsoft Certified Technical Specialist 70-431 test on Implementing and Maintaining Microsoft SQL Server 2005. Note that this test is not concerned with the use of a database, there's nothing on areas like programming in T-SQL. Instead it's oriented more to the database administrator.

4-0 out of 5 stars A lot of the information relates to older release of SQL server
This book would be fantastic if I would still run an older release of the SQL server ... and the stored procedures part is still very relevant. The XML and HTML parts (where I've expected most) unfortunately do not cover the new abilities of the SQL Server 2005, so I guess we just have to wait for a new release of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book for Hoardcore SQL Server
This book is for experienced SQL developers. No fancy stuff. I found it very useful, since you will find lot of material you won't find anywhere else. It can be a good source for those who tries to handle SQL Server administration by not using Enterprise manager (such doing a backup, reindexing databases etc.). But in any case it's a very good addition to your library. Great job by Ken Anderson.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the book for SQL Developers/DBAs
I have about $2000 worth of the book on asp.net, cfml, Microsoft SQL server, Oracle DB book, and other tech related books.Most of the books I had are poorly written and the authors are trying to make "quick buck".This book is very well written and in-depth of Microsoft SQL Server.Highly recommanded! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Book overrated
This book is overrated.Many of the examples contain errors which will consume a lot of your time.I ended up spending more time figuring out where the mistakes were (in the descriptions of the examples or in the example themselves) than I did actual learning.While I do not doubt Joe's expertise in the subject I do find that he has difficulty explaining things.For me this book was a waste of time.A co-worker of mine has the 2nd edition, and the book is half the size of the 3rd edition.That version probably has a lot fewer mistakes and might be worth reading.As far as the 3rd edition, I threw mine in the trash.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners, best for enthusiasts
Don't be tempted to buy this book unless you have at least a year of experience writing complex SQL and a reasonable knowledge of the underlying data structures and database paradigms. In fact the author has a brief gripe about beginners criticising his book as not being suited for them. The book is not designed for beginners. However, if you have a suitable level of experience then this book is a must. Full of technical know-how and the supporting theory or logic in most cases. The kind of knowledge, that takes decades to accumulate, jumps off every page. If you have done a few of those same hard yards you will quickly appreciate the benefit from the distilled experience on offer. The book is written in an easy conversational style that makes even the hardest stretches of logic easy to digest. The short and concise code samples demonstrate the points made in the text very well. Solutions to every day problems are built up step by step, with each step clearly showing the progression of the logic and the potential pitfalls. In short anyone with intermediate SQL skills or higher will get tremendous advantage out of this book, I thoroughly recommend it.
1-0 out of 5 stars Willful Ignorance of Relational Database Design
I only read the relational concepts sections, so I can't speak to the SQL, but I doubt that I'd trust any part of the book. The author seems to be confused about the difference between primary and surrogate keys, and I could not determine if he even understands what a primary key IS!

Pros:
4-0 out of 5 stars Recommended Study Guide and possible as Reference
I used this book to prepare for pl/sql exam and scored 49/57. It is a good study guide. I have not had difficulty going through the book since I was exposed to the pl/sql language when I was studying for the exam (1z0-001, Introduction to oracle 8i sql and pl/sql). This was a huge benefit for me and I only spent about three weeks reading the book. I will say that this exam (1z0-101) is built on the first one (1z0-001). I am not sure if it is also built on the exam (1z0-007). You will need to know the basics of pl/sql to fully understand this book.

Good stuff.But the MySQL Administrator's guide (2nd edition) and Language reference is out and on Amazon.That contains the same book in a later edition with the language reference on CD on top of it.Buy that instead.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Buy
This is a good book gives out the details in an easy to understand format.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth It
The MySQL Administrator's Guide by MySQL Press is the ultimate reference for anyone installing, upgrading or maintaining the MySQL database server. I found this guide to be completely invaluable when using MySQL, even before I had downloaded the software. The Guide uses clear, easy to read, formatting which makes shell instructions stand out from MySQL statements. A detailed index takes no time to show you where in 600 pages your answer lies. And you can bet you'll find the answer in this Guide. Beginners beware, however, this is no introduction to MySQL. Readers should have a clear understanding of their system, along with experience of MySQL, although an insight into MySQL AB and MySQL's history is included in Chapter 1.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Concise reference manual
This good and concise sqlserver administration reference manual has a complete online version on microsoft.com/technet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best for administration
I haven't found a better book for sql admins. This book is extremely informative. I worked for a year with SQL 7 and have been studying and working with SQL Server 2000 for a year and a half. I passed Exam 70-228 in large part due to what I learned from this book. If you are looking for a how-to book that shows just exactly how to accomplish tasks associated with creating and maintaining SQL 2000 this book is for you. This is an excellent book if you want to understand how SQL Server 2000 works as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
A lot of SQL Server books give you the same information included already in Books Online. SQL Server 2000 Administrator's Pocket Consultant is an excellent complement for Books Online, TechNet and MSDN. It covers similar topics, but it digs in where necessary, provides best practices, tips to the internal operations, explaining how SQL Server actually works, with unique information only available in this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fix the *!$@$!* Index!
I bought this book to lead me into my first foray into PHP. It was just what I needed, except for one problem: the index. Basic PHP functions such as "print" and "echo" are covered in the text, but you won't find them in the index. The data type "mixed" is used in the code examples, but isn't explained anywhere that I could find, and also lacks an index entry. As others have remarked, there are a few errors in the text, but they're pretty obvious and didn't get in the way of writing workable scripts. An excellent introduction to PHP, but a number of needless annoyances.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Up to Snuff
When I purchase a Nutshell book from O'reilly, I anticipate a very formal, detailed overview of a language and an in-depth coverage of that language's standardized libraries and features. PHP in a Nutshell is very lax with informal explainations and coverage. I am not saying that the book lacks information; it just lacks the typical detail of a usual Nutshell book. This book also has simple errors that should have been caught if the author had reviewed his own work; this is simply unexceptable. I, today, counted over 4 simple mistakes on the chapter about operators. This is something unheard of from O'reilly. I have been programming with PHP for a while now and was hoping to find a definitive reference ... well, this isn't it!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great PHP Reference
'PHP in a Nutshell' is a fantastic book for learning the ins and outs of PHP so you will be able to start programming quicker, smarter, and better than ever!

This book is an excellent introduction to both PL/SQL and general coding principles.It is a good book for beginners and old dogs alike. It provides simple, clear and useful introductions to advanced topics such a INSTEAD OF TRIGGERS, BULK COLLECTS etc.My team is now using it a our "best practice" document for PL/SQL coding.Well done Misha and Paul.
5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent text on PL/SQL
As I began reading, the attribute which came foremost to my mind was "readable".It covers all of the basics in a fashion readily comprehensible to those with even modest exposure to programming.We can always do better, but for most of us, if we go only as far as this text takes us, we will do far better than many of our contemporaries in the industry today.

I love this book. When I initially purchased this book I had a pretty good handle on PHP already, but with the examples and carefully crafted explanations this book became a great asset. This book is great at explaining the fundamentals of PHP, MySQL and Apache system configurations, scripting and much more. The book comes with a CD that is loaded with example scripts that you can use as foundations to build more complex scripts.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great first SQL book, and useful reference
I'm no SDE, but I had a need to learn enough SQL to enable me to hit my company's Data Warehouse tables directly and employ some complex joins.This was the book recommended to me, and it did the trick.I sat down and began reading it and was quickly writing increasingly complex queries.I found the explanations easy to follow, and the format intuitive.The only fault I found is that there is a lack of more complex join examples, as when there are more than one field being joined on or more than two tables being joined.

2-0 out of 5 stars Inadequate
Half of this 450 page book surveys basic SQL, and the other half is on features Oracle added to SQL in versions 9i and especially 10g. The book seems to have been intentionally "crippled" to limit it to the category of introductory overview, because much of what you need to know to work with Oracle SQL is simply not there:
4-0 out of 5 stars Good overview of Basic DML & advanced features
I will agree with other reviewers that cite this book as an excellent resource. It is well organized and easy to follow from topic to topic without getting lost. The examples are well introduced and written with few minor errors. These will be easy to spot for someone who has used any flavor of SQL.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for SQL developers!
The best SQL 2005 book for developers that I've seen so far!
3-0 out of 5 stars Useful Information - Conceptual Organization Lacking
This book contains much useful information on SQL Server 2005 T-SQL enhancements, but it regularly employs functions and constructs in its examples that are only explained in later passages. Specifically, when attempting to absorb a new concept by examining a code example, you must also contend with looking up items which have not yet been covered. This is a mild stumbling block but it hurts the flow of the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great help...
This book is a great help for beginners or those transferring from the SQL 2000 to SQL 2005. Well-written and comprehensive with detailed guidelines for DBAs and developers, it helps answer any questions one might have in their day to day work with SQL server. You will find great tips and useful examples; a great way to expand your knowledge of stored procedures, new functions used in SQL 2005, and offers a means of combatting common errors. Highly recommended! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well done.Oracle Education look out!
I'm a developer and DBA who had not written PL/SQL in over a year.I used this book as a refresher.
4-0 out of 5 stars Provides a solid foundation
The book provides very solid foundation of PL\SQL. It wisely covers the basics and repeats them in a format which isn't too redundant. For example, there are several chapters on Loops (simple, cursor, while, nested etc). This makes sense since loops are extremely important part of PL\SQL. The PL\SQL code examples are very well thought out and the test questions are very thought provoking.
3-0 out of 5 stars not deep
It is not as good as Alice Rischert's "Oracle SQL by example". Looks like it is written for people who never programed before. So it teaches how to program using examples of pl/sql. Might be good for beginners. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, indeed
I wanted to learn more about SQLJ, specifically Oracle SQLJ. I bought this book and I must say, it's worth every penny. I specifically enjoyed the chapters on SQLJ Update Batching and how to handle BLOB and CLOB.1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly organized, poor programs
I managed to learn SQLJ from this book, but it was an uphill battle. The authors skip around a lot, and there's a lot of duplication. I had some problems with compiling some of the programs also.

1-0 out of 5 stars Most of the programs do not work
I bought this book, got it home, and ended up spending most of my time fixing the programs and scripts which did not work. The result? Time wasted. I returned this book. It sucks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One big comprehensive book about SQL Server engine
This book is about SQL Server as of query and data access engine, not as of a whole product. It in fact covers the architecture of the SQL Server and its internals related to actually processing the data. This book indeed won't answer many practical HOW questions if any, instead it shows you the way SQL Server works on the inside so that you can apply this knowledge as you see fit.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best for SQL Server internals
The best book I've seen. I've been working on SQL Server since 1997. Great for a technically inclined DBA or developer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book by the master
I attended one of the seminars of the author and was thoroughly impressed by her knowledge on the matter and decided to buy her book.I am very pleased that I decided to do that.This is a very good book and a very good buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book ofr those using the SQL Plus command line or GUI tool
Oracle SQL Plus: The Defnitive Guide
4-0 out of 5 stars the glories of the command line
The glories of the command line. SQLPlus [I am not going to write that irritating asterix] is an acknowledgment of the reality that for many large computer programs and operating systems, a command line utility is vital. The book explains this for the specific instance of hooking to Oracle's database. It is meant as a definitive reference. Showing every command, often accompanied by example code.
5-0 out of 5 stars great guide
I have found this book to be a really great guide that is easy to follow.The author provides a gentle, but thorough introduction to topics like creating reports, writing scripts, customization etc.He offers methodologies and alternatives beyond the syntax that you can find in the manual.For example, he presents and evaluates six ways one can achieve some kind of if-then-else flow control in SQL*Plus.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to implement SMO from scratch
Having never written C# or C++ or DMO, I was able to quickly read parts of this book and successfully create a C# program using SMO/RMO to create my transactional / merge replication republishing environment. I had little experience using Visual Studio. I've been focused on T-SQL for SQL development for the past 8 years as a development DBA. When I looked for a book to quickly bring me up to speed in SMO/RMO, I chose this book because it is explicit and gives great examples. I look forward to using it for Reporting and Notifications. It makes learning new SQL 2005 skills exciting!

5-0 out of 5 stars A very precise book
This is a very good book.It is quite compact and does not waste time and pages on huge examples that would not make any sense at the end.The only issue, at least for me, is that it includes only the new features of the Sql Server.As a result if you are a beginner with SQL Server you need to buy an introductory book before you read this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I needed
After reading other reviews, I ordered this book. I've worked with SQL Server since version 4.2 and just wanted a resource for new features. I was very disappointed. I found very little of use.

2-0 out of 5 stars Did not help me pass the certification test
I have been writing Oracle SQL for 5 years improving the efficiency of the web application our company maintains and decided to become officialy certified.I bought this book, learned some new terminology and Oracle skills.I aced the practice tests that came with the book.However, the official Oracle exam is much more difficult than the book's practice tests.I ended up buying some of Oracle's official practice tests.Of course, they may be scams as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good exam reference
This is the only book I used to prepare for the OCP 1Z0-007 exam.The Oracle published exam objectives were covered and the sample test questions on CD were good.Other than one or two SQL syntax surprises, I had no problems with the exam.This book may not be adequate if you are unfamiliar with databases, SQL, and programming as there is not alot of instructional material here.Good luck.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not enough to pass exam
This book is an update from the release 8i. Looks like the author did not take the time to properly update material, the functions chapter have missing lots of the new functions in 9i, same goes for MERGE and INSERT INTO (SELECT FROM ...) statements.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next edition
I checked this book out from the library in order to get up to speed at work.I have a good grasp on programming (mostly scripting languages) so as long as you're not a total novice and can understand logic routines then I highly recommend this book for a those new to SQL.
5-0 out of 5 stars So you want to learn SQL for SQL Server?
This is the first Murach book i've read, and it's probably not going to be the last.
5-0 out of 5 stars A good survey of SQL for Microsoft SQL Server 2000
This is a good book.However, if you are just beginning to learn SQL, then you should really slug through "SQL Queries for Mere Mortals" first.Having done that, I found Murach's 2 page presentation style on each topic a very good way to reinforce what I had learned in "SQL Queries for Mere Mortals".The Murach text also teaches you the SQL extensions specific to Microsoft SQL Server 2000, and covers the UPDATE, DELETE & INSERT keywords, plus Data Definition Language and the other advanced features of SQL Server. ...
