With more than 4 million active installations, MySQL is the world's most popular open-source database. Known for its speed, high reliability, and ease of use, MySQL is rapidly becoming a low-cost alternative to database systems from Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft.MySQL AB intends to agressively improve the feature set and performance of MySQL, making it more suitable for enterprise-level applications and uses. The MySQL certification tests, announced in March 2003 and available at over 3,000 Pearson VUE 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 professional who wants proof of his or her abilities in such fundamental areas as SQL, data entry and maintenance, and data extraction. The MySQL 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 Certification Study Guide.Written by Paul DuBois, the leading author of books on MySQL topics, and reviewed for technical accuracy by MySQL AB, the book is the fastest, most reliable way for MySQL users to prepare for either of the MySQL tests.

MySQL seems to consider the passing criteria as a trade secret. I could find nothing that told me what percentage I had to get right on the exam to pass. When I took the exam, I received feedback that I had passed, but no score. Of course, this makes it somewhat difficult to use the practice tests to guage your progress. If I was getting 85% correct answers on the practive test (which I was), what does that mean? I finally just bit the bullet and took the test, and it all turned out fine. But it sure would have helped my self-assessment to know where I was.
Now that I'm certified, I will soon be teaching courses in MySQL. I plan to use this book as course material, and I would strongly encourage other instructors to do the same.
Many authors and publishers never follow up on a book once it has been published. Not so here: In the best of Open Source tradition, the authors are extremely keen on following through on the book and have published thorough errata (in the few places it has proved necessary) for the book on the MySQL web site. This shows a commitment to their work rarely seen in other places.
Other reviewers have pointed to a lack of sample data. This is not correct. True, some data is missing but for the most part the data used is the "world" database freely available for download from the MySQL web site. This fact is admittedly somewhat hidden in the introductory pages, and easy to miss.
Some also complain that the exercises are not in the same (multiple-choice) format as you will see on the exam. At first it does look strange, but after completing my studies I fully support the authors' choice in doing what they did. You get a much better knowledge of the subject areas with the format chosen, and learn a lot more about the many inticacies of working with the software.
Firstly, there are many options and arguments for commands/utilities and the book points you in the right direction for exam relevancy, e.g For utility X, options, Y and Z are important.
Secondly, the exam questions at the end of each chapter are excellent. They are a genuine test and challenge of your Mysql knowledge.
(...). It has also pointed out that perhaps the exam questions in the book should be multiple-choice, however as per the 'candidate guide', exam questions may appear as text box's for you to enter commands.
Overall, this book which was an essential purchase for me and without it I would not have passed the challenging exam.
N.B The book is split in two parts, the 'Core' certification and the 'Proffesional' certification. I took the 'Core' exam which is the first half of the book. I have not yet read the second part.
