The promotion period is from time to time, and currently, there should be no free voucher promotion.

In addition, as DB2 v8.2 has been released, why dont you consider to take IBM 700/701/704 instead of IBM 512/513 and 516?

Hi Nick,

As per your suggestion, i have gone thru the IBM site. DB2-700 is the advanced version to the DB2-512. But which is the equalent to the DB2-516.
516 is the database administration on OS/390. Where as 704 is the database admin. on Linux, Unix. Pls suggest me which is the qualent to 516.

Thanks

For DB2 DBA, you should take 513 as well, isnt it?

However, IBM 5xx is for DB2 v7.x, while IBM 7xx is for DB2 v8.x

Thus, you should be awared of the DB version.

For DB2 v8.x, IBM introduces a new exam IBM 704 for advanced DBA, which does not include in previous version.

For 516 equivalent, you should consider IBM 702.
