MySQL Study Guide questions

Good morning,

I have been a user of MySQL for a bit now, and decided to pursue the appropriate certifications. Towards that end I have purchased the Paul Dubois book.

I have a couple of quick questions. First, the book mentions several pertinent URLs that no longer seem to be correct. Does anyone have a list of the new URLs? For instance, the Candidate Guide mentioned in the book Introduction, listed at, seems to just be the same content as

Second, the book is divided into four sections aimed at the MySQL Developer I and II exams, and the MySQL DBA I and II exams. But the certification web site lists the Certified Associate exam, a single Developer exam, a Database Administrator exam, and a Cluster Database Administrator exam. Do the four book sections correspond to those? If not, would someone be kind enough to list the relevant sections for the Associate exam?

Third, do the skills required for each exam build on the skills for the prior exam? That would be nice as the skills to pass one exam are then applicable to the next and retained through repetition.

Finally, the book has content devoted to MySQL Query Browser and MySQL Administrator, but doesn't seem to mention MySQL Workbench. Is this significant? I've used all three, and am comfortable with all three, but I seem to discover new functionality with Workbench with every new project, so if necessary I will devote a bit of time to learning it in more depth, but I don't want to concentrate effort where it is not needed.
