Hey guys... I bought a MySql tutorial book... Guess what...I threw it away.  Such simple thing which you guys can teach me in a minute, the book teachs in three month or never teachs me anything.  

I wonder why they write such easy thing in a difficult way.

Having a lot of headaches!

Yeah...
Every tutorial book is simple to follow, but most books not much talk about errors!...  

They don't discribe why I am getting errors or how to fix the problems...  

Most book writers think every computers are setting up same as thier computer.  

One of book says "go to directory c:\DieHard\dead... "  Where is that dame directory???  I don't have that directory on my computer!  

Well, it was an example... LOL
