I agree with Will, this was a great overview. Thanks to Kai for helping me pass both exams this morning.

It was a great review from about 20 chapters of the DBA section of the MySQL certification study guide. Too much to cover in 7 hours? Still… finding time to answer everyone’s questions: It couldn’t get any better than that.
