    Question Unanswered: DB2 certification - should I wait for 8?

    I am hearing DB2 - 8 certification will start from Jan'2003. I was planning to take Test#512 and 513 to complete my DB2-7.X certification.

    Can you please tell me if I should wait for DB2-8 test or I complete 512+513 and then upgrade to DB2-8?

    Can anybody also recommend any study materials for DB2 certification?
    I have already taken the classes from IBM.

    I am oracle 9i certified. Is DB2 certification easier compared to oracle?

    The following threads should answer most of your questions

    http://dbforums.com/showthread.php?t...=certification

    and

    Useful DB2 Stuff ..

    You'll have to remember that IBM does not provide(or atleast has not) an upgrade test ... Rather, you will have to take up the usual test ... Version 7 Admin/App Dev Soln expert certs accepted v6 funda exam ... going by it, v8 might accept 512 ... but can't say for sure ...

    HTH

    Talking If you have certification... you need only one for DB2v8 Certification

    IBM always upgrade like this

    I have three of DB2 V7 Certification
    I want to upgrade my certification to DB2 V8.

    Than, You need onne-pass Any DB2 V8 Certification.

    So. Other Certification is automatically upgrade.
    Of course. Certification paper isn't re-printing as DB2 V8.

    Just Regard. DB2 V8 Certification....

    Good luck...

    I have three Certification(Fundmental / Admin / DRDA)

    And Next year I try OCP.

    I think OCP is not hard test. becouse, It is many brain-dump for OCP.
    But, IBM? I can't find.
    Whatever... Good luck..
