I've known Roger for many years and he has an excellent ability to net out information in a readable format to help prepare people for the DB2 Certification tests. I was involved in kicking off the original DB2 UDB v2 certification program and I remember how difficult it is to develop test questions that are relevant to the actual job of a DBA.
Roger's updated book for the DB2 v9 DBA certification test (731) is well done and a few nice new features in v9.7 will make DB2 even more powerful, but this book will remain an excellent resource for many years.
Congratulations Roger, keep up the prolific writing.
