I am reading two books from IBM press.

Hi,

I the study materials roger's and the Materials from site will do for this exam 701. but the questions will come from crook and corner of each topic and it will be twisted. Hence take up assessment exams and then go for the exam. All the best..!

with regards

Hi Vetsa,

I was referring to the six tutorials from the IBM site. I will help you.. It has some topics which are covered in detail than in Rogers... So, just have a glance on those too before attending this exam.

Hi sree,

The db2 DBA has much better scope in terms of job and the salary. compared to oracle dba or sql dba.. db2 udb has more weightage. since the udb databases are n times larger than that of oracle dbs or sql dbs, the salary is obviously more for db2 dba and ofcourse the work..!

and as you know db2 dbas has more onsite oppurtunities than other dbas.. and other developers... so its great..!

Regards
Hari.

Hi Sree,

Sorry for the very late reply, I was totally held up with work :-(

Regarding the training for db2 701 exam. i dont think anybody gives as like for oracle OCP. you can download the db2 enterprise edition ( free download) and have some hands on while preparing for this exam.

Even you may have cleared this exam long before.. I am not sure. but, hope my reply helps or gives an idea.

Regards
