Certify and Save Promotion? The banner shows a cute piggy bank... which to me stands out because it is unlike most other web banners... on IBM sites at least.
What is Certify and Save?
From April 1, 2008 to June 30, 2008 you will receive a $75 discount on select DB2 9 certification exams when you purchase a qualifying DB2 9 Certification Study Guide. Simply purchase a qualifying guide from any US Bookstore between April 1, 2008 and June 30, 2008, and you are eligible to receive a Professional Certification voucher valid for 50% off the cost of an eligible exam at Thompson Prometric Testing Centers.
What are the qualifying books?
Only my most favourite books... the MC Press series of study guides that were written by Roger Sanders, Susan Lawson, and Dan Luksetich:
* DB2 9 Fundamentals Certification Study Guide by Roger Sanders* DB2 9 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Database Administration: Certification Study Guide by Roger Sanders* DB2 9 for z/OS Database Administration: Certification Study Guide by Susan Lawson and Dan Luksetich
All three books were written by well-respected DB2 experts / authors / speakers / exam developers. These books are focused on helping you learn what you need to know for the exams, so there is no better resource available for prepping for the exams. Each book contains sample questions that are directly related to the objectives of the exams. No where else can you find these questions along with the answers, and reasons for the answers.
Back to the promo... if you purchase the Fundamentals book by Roger Sanders, you'll qualify for a discount voucher for Exam 730; purchase the DBA book by Roger Sanders and you'll qualify for a discount voucher for Exam 731; and finally, purchase the DBA book by Susan Lawson & Dan Luksetich and you'll qualify for a discount voucher for Exam 732.
If you're interested in this offer... I'm sure you have plenty of questions. Here is a PDF with all the details for the Certify and Save Promotion. Kate and Emily also recorded a podcast to deliver all the details.
Again... follow the pig... and you'll find the savings.
PS... for those of you attending the IDUG conference during the offering period, you'll be happy to hear that I plan to be there handing out discount vouchers to those who buy the qualifying books.
