    same issue, dropping the test database from the database tab, not query tab results in the following error message:

    #1010 - Error dropping database (can't rmdir '.\test\', errno: 17)

    I hope these boards are monitored for questions from the book or if this is not the correct place to post pls advise.

    Take a look at this thread: http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...-drop-database

    I've googled the error, and it seems to be a problem of the directory not being empty. The solution is to manually delete the files still present in the directory.
