“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 under

Good start, definitely needed to supplement with texts that included more recipes/examples.

I would assume those who seek this kind of material aren't always in a place which allows that much dedication, either. In any case, it was a well written book and the format was extremely accessible. ...more

Very good to new mysql users.

The book is complete! I read the whole book in almost 10 days two years ago and I started to write heavy MySQL scripts confidently. Strongly suggest this book for database programmers.
