      ?

       

      on http://www.vtc.com/ no link to Oracle MySQL exams. Everywhere in forum discussions you read about a study guide from 2005. I ask if I can use VTC for preperation?

          Certainly you *can* use it.  The material is not a brain dump or something that is illicit.  I assume the question you're really asking is whether the course is any good.  I have not viewed that particular VTC course but I have used some of their others.  I used one of their video courses for Linux+ when I was preparing for that exam. I do not believe it would have been sufficient in and of itself, but combined with a couple of books, it was certainly helpful.

           

          Since VTC does not develop their materials but rather have it developed independently by contractors, I don't know how much of my statement you can apply to the MySQL course.  They were almost certainly developed by two different people.  My suggestion would be to use it as a source to prepare for the exam, but not as your only source.

            that's what customer service of VTC answered me:

             

            Hello

             

            The courses are not specifically aimed at the exams, but in providing a foundation for MySQL 5 developer practices. Please review the movie "What this course will cover" in chapter 1 - sub-part 2.

             

            thanks
