Review for DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Database Administration: Certification Study Guide

This is the best book for preparing for Exam 731. I have used Roger Sanders' books in the past (viz. for v8 exams - 700 and 701). This book, like the other ones, is lucidly written and easy to understand. Also, since this is an exam preparation book; he has sample questions after every chapter. There is a 150 question set at the end of the book for practice that goes through all the main concepts (with answers too !!). If you preparing to get DB2 v9, buy this. (Also, for reference purposes you can check this out: Understanding DB2(R): Learning Visually with Examples (2nd Edition) )

It's a nice book if you already know DB2 9 pretty well and just need to refresh some details to pass the IBM exam 731.

It's not so nice for a DB2 beginner, because you cannot read it 'linearly': from the very first chapters you get references to material described much later in the book.

The introduction is 90% taken from the book on exam 730 by the same author. Maybe there's nothing wrong with it, but there are numerous references to exam 730 in the text of Chapter 1. Copy+paste, I think...
