Tera-Tom here!  You can now begin your Teradata V14 certification journey with the confidence that, if you study, you will pass.  I am releasing my first book for Teradata V14 Basics Certification today.  I will release a new certification book each month until you are a Teradata Certified Master.  The only place you can buy the first Teradata V14 Basics book is directly from me, but by November 1st, it will be available on the top 27 book sites around the world including Safari, Skillsoft (Books 24 x 7), and Amazon.  Since it is an e-book, you will be able to see it on your Kindle or any other e-reader device.  The price is $199.00. You will receive an electronic PDF today that is watermarked with your name on it should you decide to purchase.


You are going to love this book because your confidence and knowledge will soar.  It has been designed to help you pass the test, but it is so much more.  It is an incredible reference guide, learning tool, and foundation for passing all the tests and becoming a Teradata Certified Master.


You can reinforce each chapter by watching the Lessons with Tera-Tom Video Series.  Sign up and watch the videos directly on my website, or anyone with a Safari membership can watch the videos by searching on Safari for "Coffing Studios". Either way, the 16 Teradata Architecture Videos and the 17 Teradata SQL videos will show up immediately.


I have already sold the video series to some of the largest Teradata customers in the world, and they are reporting to me that the videos are motivating, entertaining, interesting, and an effective learning tool.  Although people love my books, I have never considered myself a writer.  I was a national speech champion not a national writing champion, so compliments on my video teaching are so very rewarding.  Every chapter I teach, I try to make clear, dynamic, and fun.


I have designed the certification books to visually paint pictures of each concept because the Teradata certification tests have proved to be extremely difficult to pass.  The first test on Teradata basics covers almost every subject under the sun.  I don't know why a basics test includes Viewpoint, TASM, protection features, compression, hardware models, relational models, security, and load utilities. But there is no need to worry, because I have your back.


If you think you feel pressure to pass, you should see the pressure Teradata is putting on their own employees.  Teradata employees are told they need to pass these tests and become Teradata Certified Masters.  Of the 10,000 Teradata employees, only around 60-70 were able to complete the mission and get their V12 masters. Around 30-40 people outside of Teradata achieved V12 masters.  My books were not available for V12 certification tests.  Luckily, that frown is about to be turned upside down for anyone needing to become V14 certified!


If failure is not an option, you will appreciate the great lengths I have gone to give you the best opportunity to pass.  The book covers every subject in its entirety with beautifully colored pictures.  The key to passing each test is to clearly visualize the architecture, how data is spread across AMPs, how Teradata processes queries utilizing parallel processing and varying indexes, and how partitioning and columnar can improve performance in the right situations.  Study the bold and you'll find gold! I have included hundreds of practice questions and short challenges so you will know exactly how Teradata features and concepts work.
