You can't learn SQL in 20 pages and this book does not even try. Take out the filler text and you are left with 20 pages. All this Author does is cut and paste some stuff from a blog to make a ~20 page intro to a subject that is riddled with mistakes and then pay people to give it fake reviews to sucker people who actually want to learn something in.Save your money for a real book on MySQL. There are plenty out there.
This book is excellent, i am a lover of books and learning about programming languages, and MySQL programming language is very difficult to handle, but with this book, everything becomes much easier, even for him not you have no idea what "programming". The book is very well written, explains everything step by step so as not to confuse easy, to be honest it is one of the best books I've read. I recommend it to anyone interested in learning about this language.
Since the first moment I found this book, I felt really interested in it, and then I decided to purchase it. I do not feel any regret about my purchase, because this book is really awesome, I mean it does exactly what it claims to. It’s an excellent tool for programming beginners, this book explains you what you have to do step by step to be a good programmer (it is really easy to understand). In my personal opinion this book rocks! 100% recommended.
excellent explanation for the mysql, I read it for review as I know mysql years. I can say that they took the time to detail step by step insert update delete command and select among others. with the necessary examples for people who see it for the first time can understand that is something important from my point of view. The chapter also svan of the easy to the difficult with their example so I think that makes understanding the mysql, read it and good luck
The book worked great for me! I thought the book is cleverly structured and emphasizes key aspects of client-server communication (its statelessness for instance). Therefore, an absolute beginner can quickly understand how to approach a PHP project (i.e. how to structure it on a piece of paper). I bought this recently to get into developing and expanding my use of MySQL to use triggers and stored procedures. Previously been using V4 heavily and whilst I had some prior experience of triggers and stored procedures on SQL Server and Oracle it was not extensive. This book whilst appears a little long winded in places actually provides a very logical approach to developing stored procedures, improving your skills and even tuning/best practice to get the most performance out of your database. This is a book for those with some prior experience of SQL and perhaps touched on triggers/stored procedures who want to expand.
This book is written in a style that allows for ease of understanding. The contents are detailed enough to address most needs and provide code example throughout. Particularly appreciated is the detailed explanation which facilitates understanding (some people struggle more) when dealing with a specific issue. I am not an MySQL expert, and I can say this book is what I needed to start learning the curves of MySQL. This is what I expected from the get go coming from Sam Key. Recommended for the beginner to intermediate programmer in this field.
Excellent book. I would like to say that is a complete book and very well written, I was looking an easy method to learn MySQL because i want to expand my knowledge about programming, in my point of view you need to have experience with programming, however this book is actually helpful because it explains step to step how can you work with it, it has useful information about advantages and advice on how to protect your data. I would to recommend this book if you're looking for a new language to work with.
I had always had troubles learning MySQL, but after reading this prodigious book on it, I have found that it is much easier to understand than it is in other books. In this book written by Sam Key I have definitely learned more than I have in any other programming book.
