To help you be more efficient in your work, this handy pocket reference gives you instant reminders on how to use important MySQL functions, especially in conjunction with key parts of the LAMP open source infrastructure. This powerful database system is so rich in features that no administrator or programmer can stay familiar with all of them. MySQL Pocket Reference is an ideal on-the-job companion, well organized to help you find and adapt the statements you need -- quickly.

Updated for the latest versions of this popular database, this edition covers many complex features that have been added to MySQL 5.0 and 5.1, including a section dedicated to stored procedures and triggers. After a brief introduction on installation and initial setup, the book explains:

  • How to configure MySQL, such as setting the root password
  • MySQL data types, including numerics, strings, dates, and complex types
  • SQL syntax, commands, data types, operators, and functions
  • Arithmetic, comparison and logical operators
  • Aggregate and general functions
  • Stored procedures and triggers, including procedure definition, procedure calls, procedure management, cursors, and triggers
You don't have time to stop and thumb through an exhaustive reference when you're hard at work. This portable and affordable guide is small enough to fit into your pocket, and gives you a convenient reference that you can consult anywhere. When you reach a sticking point and need to get to a solution quickly, the MySQL Pocket Reference is the book you want to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good pocket reference for MySQL Dec 20 2011
By Yuward
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for people that already know how to work with MySQL, because it's for references not for learning of beginner MySQL user.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and Precise Aug. 28 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is handier than I imagined it could be. I knew that I had a copy of MySQL installed on my iBook , and not much more than that. The MySQL Pocket Reference showed me how to start it, insert data into the "test" database, and make inquiries against it in no time at all. It would be difficult to be more clear and helpful than that. The organization may be odd. But, almost every entry has a good discussion followed by helpful examples.
Of course, I do not expect to learn everything I need to know from this little book. But, I am sure that I will be turning to it time and again as I work my way through in depth sources and actual projects.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm always looking for a good MySQL reference. I find myself looking for the syntax of a particular command. This book comes in handy when looking for a particular MySQL command. For the size of this book, is really packs a ton of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, quick reference Dec 7 2004
By Greg E. Covey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an excellent reference to the MySQL language. It is faster to use than the online MySQL documentation, and can go anywyere. This is a better reference to MySQL than the O'Reilly book 'SQL in a Nutshell' (first edition), which left out many key MySQL commands and clauses.

The only downside to this book is that it does not include a list of reserved words for MySQL. Other than that, it's a great reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Intermediate-level Users Nov. 1 2010
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I got this pocket reference when I was creating my first MySQL intensive website. I learned most of the basic MySQL from another book, but I found that turning to a textbook for the basic reference was too cumbersome. This pocket guide is primarily useful for quick checking of syntax or the structure of the basic MySQL uses. Despite the plethora of the information on the web, I still find it most efficient to look in this pocket reference if I just need some basic information or a confirmation of a particular use. I think that the ideal audience for this reference would be the intermediate-level MySQL programmers - people who are familiar enough with MySQL that they don't need extensive hand-holding with every detail, and yet are not so advanced to find the information in this reference redundant or not detailed enough.

The only major issue that I have with this pocket guide is that today it's a bit dated and in a need of a major revision and an update. However, despite this shortcoming it is still fairly useful for most everyday MySQL uses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but needs updating & improving May 6 2007
By P. N. Payne - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's handy, but a little old and too brief with important parts left out. It needs to be updated and improved. Ie: The admin commands are poorly covered. Do not use this book to help you use Grant or Revoke. The Grant All section is simply wrong.
