    Remember one thing... there is no use of passing an exam just for the sake of it... when you do 000-730 or 731 for that matter, people expect a certain level of knowledge on the subject / domain for that matter.... and if you show your ignorance on the matter when someone knows that you are certified then they'll know for sure that you have passed just by referring dumps...

    I have started with this book

    "Oracle to DB2 Conversion Guide for Linux, UNIX, and Windows"

    IBM Redbooks | Oracle to DB2 Conversion Guide for Linux, UNIX, and Windows

    Then you can dip into DB2 easily.

    There are certification guides (e.g. books) that you can purchase at Amazon or some other bookstore.

    Certifications do cost money and involves efforts.... save both of em as well by not giving the exam....

    for certification i have to give exam and spent 5000 bucks,that is MANDATORY..but if i can save some money by choosing to spend some time on internet and search for free ebooks then whats the harm ??
    the only thing i am saying that i am new in DB2..i have all the required material for ORacle 10g coz i spent time when i actually had..but now due to job i dont get time to devote in searching..i am asking this much help from you guys that if anyone can provide me e books for certification.

    if any of you guys cant even do this for me then just say that you dont provide such things.its simple..
    an efforts i am putting by spending 2 hours(on top of 12 hrs) daily but i all i want is that my efforts dont go in vein,i want the material i study shud b spot on for certification

    Sorry my friend, still you have 12hrs X 6 days and 1 full day.
    If you use 10% from this, you can get through the certification soon.

    Let me close on this thread here.....

    1. No one is going to provide you pdf's of books here. You need to BUY them from a store.
    2. No one will supply you dumps here, bcoz we don't recommend that.
    3. Test preparation details are quite cleary mentioned here IBM: Test 000-730: DB2 9 Family Fundamentals
    4. Certification books which you may need to BUY is available here IBM Software - Certification Guides - Information Management Books

    Hope that clears out all your doubts.

    One last thing: It is rather rude to abbreviate words when you type, e.g. "u" instead of "you" and so on. I recommend that you try to adopt a clear and not-so-lazy style and that will be much appreciated in the future. (I'm always asking myself in such situations "why should I answer if the writer doesn't even bother to spend some time and effort on the question itself?")

    Just my 2 cents...
