What's New: DB2 10.5 Fundamentals for LUW Certification Study Guide

by Anne Grubb May 03, 2016 0 Comments

DB2 10.5 Fundamentals for LUW: Certification Study Guide, the newest title in MC Press' Certification series, helps DBAs prepare for IBM Certification Exam 615. Written by DB2 expert Roger E. Sanders, this book gives IBM DB2 database administrators a thorough review of each topic covered in the DB2 10.5 Fundamentals for LUW certification exam -- IBM Professional Certification Program test C2090-615.

As he's done in his previous Certification Study Guides, Sanders draws on his direct knowledge of the certification exam questions to tailor the book's content. He starts with an overview of the certification process, and then covers each of the exam areas: planning; security; working with databases and database objects; working with DB2 data using SQL and XQuery; working with DB2 tables, views, and indexes; and data concurrency.

What makes the book far more valuable than just a review guide are the included 125 practice questions, which simulate those on a real exam, and the detailed answers that Sanders provides, in the book's appendices.
