Title: Murach's MySQL (3rd Edition)
Author(s): Joel Murach
Publisher: Mike Murach & Associates


Mike Murach & Associates wrote:If you’re an application developer, this is the MySQL book for you. That’s true whether you’ve never coded a SQL statement before or whether you’re coming to MySQL with a background in Oracle, SQL Server, or another flavor of SQL. It’s true whether you think that you know a lot about SQL, or whether you know that you know very little. It’s true whether you’re going to be your own database administrator (DBA) or whether a separate team handles that.
See for yourself why this book has been the go-to MySQL resource for developers ever since the 1st Edition was published in 2012./quote]

    “Murach's MySQL” is your typical Murach book. It's great for learning something new because of the paired page format. I'm used to seeing that format for coding books. Turns out the same benefits apply to SQL. We have syntax/queries/tables on one side and text on another. Each chapter ends with exercises to reinforce the knowledge.

    I was happy to see the section on design covered levels of normalizations. I was also happy to see basic database administration covered. The tables were easy to understand and provided good examples.  The stored program/procedure sections were good as well.

    This is a great book for someone new to databases.

    I give this book 8 out of 10 horseshoes.

    Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for writing this review on behalf of CodeRanch.
    and POOF! You're gone! But look, this tiny ad is still here:
