Hi Priya,

Thanx for your reply.I appreciate it.I did see that CD pack .I was just curious to know whether anyone got it.How useful was it.Do they sell it in any stores or anywhere in Bangalore so that we can get it directly instead of the online procedure.
I have also got one more post for you regarding the DB2 UDB DBA 701 Certification.I wanted to get some Sample questions or a site where I can get them.

Thanks again
Venky

Is there any difference with:
