Guys,
Has any of you taken the DB2 512 exam? There is a free voucher available from IBM if you get 75% on their mock exam. How different is the real exam from mock exam?
Thanks

Hi Harpreet,
I have passed DB2 (512) exam three month back. I got free voucher for that and now i am going to appear for 516. Real exam is also in similar pattern with 55 question. The PDF given to prepare for 512 in IBM site is sufficient to pass.

Hi,
Should we have to get 75% minimum at the first attemp itself for being eligible for the free voucher?.
or
How many attempts are allowed in the ICE test for getting the free voucher?.*
Thanks,
Prabu

Hi,
You can take any number of attempts, only if you will get more then 75% then you will be eligible for free voucher.
Thanks

Here you get all information:

Its not that difficult. You have as much tries as you want. Forget Bill Lob.
There are also multimedia-courses with voice for 512 (basic) and 514 programming.

Each is bigger than 30 MB. For me both are worth the effort to download.
