About the DB2 10.1/10.5 Certification Book
Check out the book DB2 10.1/10.5 for Linux, Unix and Windows Database Administration: Certification Study Guide on Amazon.com! However, don't be misled by the book title! Kent tells me the title might change because it is so much more than just a certification guide!

Testimonial from Scott Hayes
"This book isn't just a valuable study guide, but also an excellent reference that you will likely refer to frequently. The command examples are very helpful, and the study flash cards at the end of each chapter are brilliant. You will not only find sample certification questions, but also answers to the questions with explanations. Mohan won the worldwide DB2’s GOT TALENT contest in 2013, and Kent has appeared as a guest on The DB2Night Show™ talking about his early and successful experiences with IBM BLU and pureScale. It is absolutely refreshing to have such a helpful book authored by real people with abundant hands-on experience."
