The book covers a great many aspects of DB2, but with only a brief amount on each. There is no emphasis on the new features of DB2 9, so may appeal to someone new to DB2, but doesn't help someone who already has the version 8 certification. The sample exam is most disappointing (almost completely wrong to call it a sample exam) as it is a repeat of the questions asked at the end of every chapter; just in random order. Also there are no suggestions of practical exercises that can be carried out to gain experience of the various features.
