Sample / Assessment test
There isn't an IBM Press book that helps prepare for this exam, but with the number of articles on developerWorks, I hope that much of that can help. Stay tuned for a series of tutorials that are being developed now that will help.
If you are planning to attend one of the IBM Technical Conferences this fall, plan to take the exam while at the conference. As usual, all DB2, CM, Informix, U2, Tivoli, WebSphere, and Business Intelligence exams will be available to attendees for FREE.
