Publisher Comments:

The MySQL database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability, and ease of use. That's why best-selling authors Phil Pratt and Mary Last are pleased to introduce their latest database textbook - A Guide to MySQL. This straightforward text utilizes three case databases - Premiere Products, Henry Books, and Alexamara Marina Group - to teach the concepts and techniques of using MySQL. Your students will gain the skills to build professional quality MySQL databases, thanks to this real-world approach. Additional hands-on exercises at the end of each chapter offer students the opportunity to problem-solve based on what they've previously learned.

A Guide to MySQL, by Philip Pratt and Mary Last, is yet another step into the open-source arena, which is rapidly growing in the technology industry. Topics include design techniques, data definition, commands to query a database, updates, administration and client tools, and finally, MySQL special topics.

Hi,

Is there any way to get this as an ebook? I've already ordered a hardcopy, but I find it helps so much to also have a searchable digital version. For one thing with a digital version I can begin reading assignments so I don't drop behind in class.

Thanks,
