Review:

DB2 Universal Database v7.1: Database Administration Certification Guide is meant to help you pass two of IBM's three DB2 certification exams. IBM's DB2 Universal Database has a large following of corporate users--which means information technology professionals eager to sell their services to such companies--who can profit by knowing how to set up and use DB2. The easiest way to pass sniff tests in the search for a DB2 administration job is to have your certification papers in hand. Coverage in the book is sufficiently wide-ranging and deep (this is a large book) that you can continue to use the book as a reference once you've passed the exams.

Baklarz and Wong--both members of IBM's DB2 team--document the subject fully, don't cover test-taking strategies, and avoid limiting themselves to subjects known to appear on the exams. Indeed, except for some sample questions in an appendix, you wouldn't know that this is an exam-prep book at all (which is good, because knowledge-gathering is the best exam preparation of all. The book explains DB2 with the proven technique of what and why, shows how to do it (and illustrates the process with listings and screen shots), and then recaps what went on in the process. It's an effective approach that DB2 administrators will like. --David Wall

Topics covered: The published scope of the DB2 Family Fundamentals exam and the DB2 for OS/2, Windows, Unix, and Linux Database Administration exam, including basic functionality and architecture, database objects, Structured Query Language (SQL), data maintenance, and backup. Though there's some mention of software development issues, this book doesn't cover the requirements of the DB2 Family Applications Development exam.
