Haven't taken the exam yet, taking it tomorrow. The last chapter is a bit of mess and refers to both the Unity Product suite and the old components now being replaced/called Unity or the Unified Architecture. Question 6 only has 1 answer, which is it? This chapter is confusing and leads me to believe I could be asked a question that references either Teradata Replication Services Or Unity Data Mover. I expected more given that this is a Teradata approved study guide. If I pass the exam tomorrow, I'll come back and up my review to 4 stars but right now I'm keeping it to 3.

Update

I passed the exam and the study guide turned out to provide significant value so I increased it to 4 stars. As one other poster said, you definitely need practical experience along with the study guide to pass this exam. The exam is no push over.

Whilst I am yet to take the exam which this guide is to help you prepare for, it does seem to do a pretty decent job of giving you the basics of what Teradata is and is all about. A good introduction to Teradata/Tools & utilities, some specific terminology, very basic overview to databases and warehousing and an introduction to all the components and a number of practice questions.

It is quite an expensive book for what is essentially a paperback that is not very thick or detailed on any particular area.

You could probably use Teradata's own manuals and literature to give yourself just a good education on 'the basics' and save yourself 60 dollars, but I figure this book must be written with the exam in mind.

I had no idea about Teradata once I bought this book and decided to sit for the Certification exam. I should say this book has done a fantastic job but don't forget you need to read thing that doesn't make sense in other source as well. There were still things in the exam beyond the book but this book is a FANTASTIC head start and you can find extra information on the web.

in summary : You really can rely on this this book to pass the test unless you want to dig the whole web instead of this comprehensive, organized and nicely written study guide.

There is nothing in this book that's not elsewhere for free.
Too little information for all that is covered in the Basics exam.
