I haven't got this cert. Are you familiar with the old exam (v5.5)? If so you may able to use the old study guide and learn the new features.

Fazile, you are absolutely right. I think most people can not afford that kind of price. Back in 2009, I read two books by Paul DuBois for my certification preperation.

MySQL (4th Edition)

MySQL Study Guide

and I think the best source is MySQL website http://dev.mysql.com/

Hope this will help. Thanks
