offers information about both DB2 and z/OS operating systems as well as guidance
for preparing for the IBM Certification Test

such as installation and maintenance procedures. With chapters on
troubleshooting, performance and tuning, and securing and auditing, as well
as practice questions, this reference is a one-stop shop for DB2 system
At the time of writing this blog entry, the book did not have a special price
