A little experience in DB2 and this book helps you clear the test 700. When I read the book, I felt like the number of Practice questions are not sufficient for the preparation but most of the questions in the real test were similar to the practise questions in this book. I just spent one month for the preparation and I cleared the test with 80%. The CD which with DB2 for dummies gives you the confidence to take the test

With any large commercial software package that has books devoted to teaching it, invariably the vendor will offer an exam. The vendor's stamp of approval on a successful passing grade has a built-in cachet. Well IBM's dB2 is one of the oldest major packages, and it certainly has exams. As is typical in these things, IBM also offers a book on exam preparation. Naturally comprehensive. Has test questions AND answers. It does not each the theory of relational databases. You need to be clear on this. Now it certainly shows the many SQL options that IBM has implemented in dB2. But here also, you need to know that the book does not really teach SQL either. You are expected to already know SQL and have enough familiarity with dB2. The intent here is to cover the topics that will be in the exam, and do this well enough so that you can find any gaps in your knowledge and remedy these. The focus is strictly utilitarian. Lest you think this is too restrictive, let me note that it is often so with such books, and not just by IBM. You might be encouraged to know that the book covers just the introductory certification. More advanced exams are outside its purview. For example, in a companion IBM text, 'DB2 Version 8 - The Official Guide' by Zikopoulous et al, you can find more difficult topics to master. But if you are time constrained, the Study Guide will be better value.
