zzzzzzzzzz


this book gives me a major headache. unfortunately, it's assigned material for an intro database class i'm taking. as a business, not computer science major, I find this book to be overly complicated with too much verbiage. this is an intro book, it should be simple, yet it reads like a math book. just explain the simple concepts and not go into elaborate detail with terminology and database mathematical concepts. this book is geared toward hard-core techies. if at all possible, save your money for an easier and more entertaining book, not a dry, boring, incomprehensible one. alright, now that i've let out my frustrations, i'll get back to studying this book now for the upcoming final. wish me luck. i'll need it!

What a shame


I bought this book after reading other osborne's certification books. I thought the quality would be similar, but it's a shame I was totally wrong.
...After seeing some people rating this book with 5 stars I think they haven't been fair. If you pass the exam it doesn't mean the book is good, maybe you already had some experience on the subject.I DON'T think this book is worth the money it costs. At most I would buy it sharing costs with some friends so that we all can read the pdf version.
Finally, and just to make it clear, the CD does NOT contain 2 sample exams. It only contains one exam and after registering at osborne you'll be given a chance for a second one. Slight difference. Both exams have some ambiguous questions and wrong ones...
