Hi Gerardo, 

I recommend DB2 10.5 Fundamentals for LUW by Roger Sanders. I have pasted the amazon link of the book.

Hi Gerardo!

Adding to what Karthik recommended, I would also recommend the following books:

  • Understanding DB2: Learning Visually with Examples (2nd Edition) 2nd Edition


  • DB2 Essentials: Understanding DB2 in a Big Data World (3rd Edition) (IBM Press) 3rd Edition

1) go to the next IDUG conference in Philadelphia, PA USA in April and/or join a local Db2 Regional user group (see idug.org for details)

2) Db2 v11.1.3.3 is the latest version.  Download Db2 Developer Community Edition for FREE : https://www.ibm.com/analytics/us/en/db2/trials/

3) Roger Sanders' books are the best!  There are also free books for v10 and v11:

v11.1 ebook:   https://ibm.ent.box.com/v/DB2v11eBook

v11.1 pdf manuals: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27050624
