3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not excellent July 31, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book helped me a lot to pass IBM exam 730, I must note that:

(a) There is a small number of unpleasant errors in the book, including at least
two incorrect answers to sample test questions and several mistakes in sample
test questions themselves.

(b) When taking the exam, I saw at least three questions which were completely
out of scope of that book.

So use with care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, learn it, and you will pass!!! July 13, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At first I was using a Study Guide given from the IBM website and was caught off guard with topics I haven't seen before when I took the online test exam. After seeing and purchasing this book... WOW! It had it all. I would not have passed the 730 exam without it. Buy it now if you need to pass the fundamentals exam.

This book I found as good book for certification (exam 000-730) on analogue book DB 2 v8.1 (700). The book is easy for understanding (inc. Beginners).

Format:Paperback
I appeared today for my exam and felt like i was hit by storm after carefully reading this book thrice. I certainly agree its a very good resource for understanding concept, but not completely informative to clear the exam. I would rather want to say that the questions i appeared for were not the the typical ones, rather had some tough tone to it. Whichever way, my advise would be carry few other valuable resources and try practicing as much as possible before your actual test.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helped me pass the cert test - lots of errors tho September 16, 2013
By J. Muir
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The good: This is the best book out there for certification study. I went thru it 3 times until I really had mastered the material. I also used the IBM on-line certification prep material. The REALLY nice thing about this book is the sample questions. There are sample questions for each chapter plus there's a huge (way bigger than what you'll actually encounter at cert test time) sample test at the end. IBM's online study guide does NOT have ANY sample questions. The section describing the testing software is really helpful too. Much better to know that going in, rather than having to figure that out at testing time.

The bad: Lots of mistakes in the book. Some mistakes in the chapter contents but mostly mistakes in the sample questions. For example, one of the sample tests has the same question twice. One of the sample questions has exactly the same answer choice twice. On one sample question, none of the answers are correct. Some of the sample questions have the wrong answer. Some of the sample questions have an incorrect question. But if you really understand the material and question the questions, you'll catch those and even learn something from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars You get more than you pay for it May 29, 2007
By J. Lal
Format:Paperback
The technical depth and to the point discussion makes this book the BEST among the DB2 9 books available in the market. You get most bang out of buck. It not only the best book for DB2 certification exam but also extremly useful for day-to-day DBA tasks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for Fundamentals Cert May 23, 2007
By R. Bond
Format:Paperback
Roger Sanders is one of the best writers out there and certainly the most published on the topic of DB2. That probably explains the appropriateness and "readability" of this foundational work on DB2 fundamental concepts with a DB2 9 focus. Even for those DB2 DBAs who have been around for a few years, there is new information that will be valuable not just when sitting for the test, but also when approaching day-to-day DBA tasks. As always, Roger's writing style flows seamlessly from one topic to the next, allowing the reader to focus on the content without the style "hiccups" that make too many technical works difficult to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to get your certification July 11, 2007
By crwonk
Format:Paperback
This was the main resource I used to pass the certification. For a technical book it remains quite readable. Because the author was also involved in writing the exam, if you study diligently then you will not be caught with your pants down when taking the actual test. It's worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent study guide for DB2 certification.
I had to buy an updated version of the manual because the original book was full of errors which the most recent version clears up. Good study material for the test.

This is very complete but in my opinion isn't the best to study to get the certification.
