I often mention tutorials and books as a way to gain skills for DB2 9, but our classroom courses have been updated and continue to be very popular. The instructors are excellent and the prices are very competitive!
Here are two of the classes that are now available to help you prepare to pass exams 730 and 731, as well as get you ahead of the technology curve and learn DB2 9:
Title: DB2 Family FundamentalsNumber: CF03
Title: DB2 Database Administration WorkshopNumber: CF20 (Linux), CF21 (UNIX), CF23 (Windows)
To locate a class in your area use the Global Training Finder, and then take advantage of IBM low-cost learning options such as Redbooks, DB2 Gaming, technical papers and self-study tutorials.
