The best book on the market for passing the IBM DB2 Certification Exams.
Good content and covers just about everything you need to know.
The sample questions could do with being somewhat different from those that can be found on the IBM web site.
The one flaw is in that it has never been proof read. I have all the errors documented so feel free to contact me if you wish to know. In addition to this some of the examples are wrong and could do with being tested before being placed in the book.
The quality and Quantity of information far outway the errors in the book and I would recommend it if you intend to get yourself certified.

After completing only two chapters I have become so frustrated with typos and scripts from the CD that don't run, I would put this book on the shelf if there was another option or I could live without learning this technology immediately.
The book was not accurately updated for the new version of DB2 - as evidenced by the CD installation instructions that reference version 1.x and include install instructions for directories that no longer exist on the CD!

This book is significantly expanded from the first edition. It provides broad coverage of the nuts and bolts of DB2 and is excellent preparation for the IBM DB2 UDB V5 certification exams.
Unfortunately, it is marred by a plethora of typographical errors: there is no improvement here from the first edition.
A good proofreader would have made this an excellent book.

The coverage of UDB database analyst functionality is its strength. You don't want to learn SQL syntax nor SQL programming from this text (read "A Complete Guide to DB2 Universal Database" by Don Chamberlin). I found the typos, text that doesn't agree with the figures, and incorrect answer keys, extremely distracting.
