    Exam 700

    Hi Deepa,

    The best way to prepare for certification is to download the tutorials from the IBM Site. This is a really great starting point.

    Secondly create a login at http://certify.torolab.ibm.com and start appearing for the sample tests. Though repititive they give you a really great idea of knowing where you stand in terms of the areas of questioning. Go on till you can score approx 80% consistently.

    Once you are there, guess you can go ahead and give the exam.

    This is the way I am prepraring.

    Please also go through the useful stuff under the dbforums, that has links to online tutorials for 700

    Best of luck

    Regards

    Nitin.

    DB2 Universal Database V8.1
    for unix, Linux and Windows
    Database Adminstration Certification Guide.
    -By
    George Baklarz - Bill Wong

    This is the best book (which is straight forward) to get through the Exams (700 and 701) + Online trainings (certify toronto labs).

    If you have V7.1 or V6.1 certification guides (above said authors) books means, you will find more sample question and answers. Go to any book shop and search for V7.1 or V6.1 books and read the Q/A.

    Good Luck!

    Query

    Hi Deepa,

    I know it is a bit personal in nature, however which part of india are you in??

    By the way you can always visit http://redbooks.ibm.com for some good references.

    Then I could refer some places.
