Hi David,

First, thank you very much for your detailed reply. I did do some looking for the certification information you provided, but obviously not very well. I do appreciate you providing information that I could have just found myself.

I think I managed to confuse myself in the process too. From your reply, I gather the Associate Exam is kind of an entry level, confidence builder type of exercise. Somehow I had come to believe it was the first of the two-part developer exam.

That being the case, I'm not sure I see a reason to devote time to it. Instead, I will probably just study for the first developer exam, then the second. It looks like one must pass both before receiving any type of certification. Unless you think there is a real need for the Associate certification, I will pursue the Developer certification route and bypass the Associate certification altogether.

As for the GUI tools, most of my real MySQL experience is either through programming APIs for a specific application, or through the CLI for specific tasks. I've used WorkBench for design work, but that is not our main tool where I work. I have also used Query Browser and Administrator, but again I prefer the CLI. Therefore, I will probably just devote as much effort on the GUI tools as the Guide devotes to examples and questions involving them.

Thanks again, and I will do my best to remember to tell you when I have successfully passed.

Sincerely,
Nelson
