Format: Hardcover
This book features all the information you need to complete the certification exams together with your experience and a DB2 copy.
Many people that I know read and study this book, and on the day before the exams read the DevelopeWorks' tutorial as flash cards..
This book together with a free DB2 copy (DB2 Express-C) are what you need to pass the exams.

If you are not interested in the certification, this book is still for you if you need a great reference book or complete guide for DBAs.

If you are a self made DBA may be astonhised/surprised after you read the book, because of some many new details or best practices you will find.

If you are a total beginner, pick this book together with the Understanding DB2: Learning Visually with Examples and you are all set to go.

I ordered this a while back but hadn't gotten a chance to read it until a major snowstorm with power out for several days.

Although a DB2 user for over 20 years, I found considerable new information. There was also a section on the free downloadable DB2DEMO program which is a great resource for sample SQL queries exercising new functionality.

I bought this book to prepare for my DB2 certification. It has useful information especially for beginners but I am not a beginner so I already know most of what's discussed in the book. Is is an easy read and for that I give it 3 stars but this is not the best reference guide for a certification.

There is no many db2 books in the marketing. It is the best one for exam or handbook for dba.
But it is not up to date to DB2 9.7.
