A taste of MySQL certification on Facebook

Do you plan to take the MySQL Certification?

Or, are you just curious to know how good you are at MySQL ?

If you use Facebook, and chances are that you do, then you should give a try to the MySQL Quiz Application.

Well, it is not like the real certification, but it's fun, and some of the questions are hard enough to give you pause.

The MySQL Quiz Application was created by Dave Stokes, the MySQL certification manager. Thanks, Dave!

Comments:

The quiz app has a few bugs. The answer screen does correctly score your results, but it doesn't always display the correct answer with the correct letter.

Example

Question 3: What program allows you to interacitvly query tables?

A) mysqldump
B) mysql
C) mysql query browser
D) B & C

Thats okay but say you submit answer D. (doesn't really matter if its the correct answer or not, and it doesn't happen all of the time). This is what you may see on the next screen:

Question 3: correct
Answer D) You answered D) mysqldump

The letter is correct, the description is not correct for the letter.

I found another bug on question 18.

What is the advantage of a shared nothing architecture as compared to a shared disk architecture?
A It lowers response time
B It offers higher availability
C It can be scaled using cheap commodity hardware.
D All of the above.

If you choose B, it shows:
Question 3: incorrect
You Answered B
And the correct answer is C It offers higher availability.

Anyway, thanks for the quizz, I't´s great!
