The must have book,
This review is from: DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows: DBA Guide, Reference, and Exam Prep (6th Edition) (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.

Great DB2 Information Source,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows: DBA Guide, Reference, and Exam Prep (6th Edition) (Hardcover)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.
