In order to become an IBM Certified Database Administrator - DB2 9 DBA for z/OS, you must pass two exams: DB2 9 Fundamentals Exam (Exam 730), and DB2 9 Database Administrator for z/OS (Exam 732)—the primary focus focus of this book.

Written by two members of the team who participated in the actual writing of the exam, this specialized study guide covers every topic that you will need to know to pass Exam 732, including database design and implementation, operation and recovery, security and auditing, performance, as well as installation and migration/upgrade. But that is only the beginning. It also covers the new features of DB2 9 for both database and application development.

This comprehensive guide includes an extensive set of practice questions in each chapter that closely model the actual exam, along with an answer key with a description of why the answer is the correct one. No other source gives you this much help in passing the exam.

Whether you plan to take Exam 732 or just want to master the skills needed to be an effective database administrator on z/OS systems, this is the only book you’ll need.

With the DB2 9 for z/OS Database Administration Certification Study Guide, you will:

• Discover the changes to DB2 9 that you’ll need to know in order to be successful when taking the exam

• Learn how to effectively administer a DB2 database

• Receive an explanation of every objective included on the test…by someone involved in the creation of the actual exam

• Find 85 practice questions based on the actual exam’s format and approach, along with comprehensive answers to help you gain understanding

Publisher’s Note: While this book covers much of the information needed to prepare for Exam 730, a far more in-depth review of topics specifically related to Exam 730 can be found in the MC Press companion book: DB2 9 Fundamentals Certification Study Guide by Roger E. Sanders.

3.0 out of 5 stars good material, could be written better December 5, 2009
By Publius
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book contains the material necessary for certification preparation, however, it could be written better.

The authors, or one of the authors, had difficulty developing phrases and constructing sentences. In some sections of the book, there are sentences that are poorly constructed. After careful reading, you will be able to understand what they are trying to convey in the sentence. The author(s) have weak writing skills that need to be improved. Reading the book would be more enjoyable had an editor corrected some of the archaic sentence constructions.

In short, 'A' for material content, 'D+' for writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb March 23, 2008
Come on guys - it's authored by Susan and Dan - of course it's brilliant.
Very well structured. Covers all major topics, giving the most important key information. And despite the complexity of DB2 these days - the book is very, very easy to read.
