[z/OS] Any book available for exam 737 DB2 9 System Administrator for z/OS?
Hi

I would like to know if there is (or will be) available a book for exam 737 DB2 9
System Administrator for z/OS.

I am looking for a book focused on the exam, not DB2 manuals.

Thanks

Jorge

The ""DB2 9 for z/OS Database Administration: Certification Study Guide
(Paperback)" by Susan Lawson and Daniel Luksetich is great for
administrator test (730? 732?) for z/OS but is not designed for the
system administrator test. It does have some information regarding
system parameters but does not focus on the activities germane to the
system administrator test.

I would suggest studying the v9 installation guide, some Red Books on
performance, and gaining experience from actual installation and system
tuning. I cannot think of a single guide book on the market.

Thanks Michael

I have found that the Study Guides are a good way to organize your actual
knowledge of the subject focused on the exam structure and questions.

I learned that knowledge of the subject and experience alone is not enough to
pass an exam, you have to study and practice on the questions. That part is
very well covered in the Study Guides, but of course you can find the same
base information in the DB2 manuals and redbooks.
