AnuTeradata documentation PDF's are the best you can look into while preparing for your basics certification. I'd suggest you go through the "Introduction to Teradata RDBMS" completely and take some practice tests before appearing for the exams. Hope this helpsCheersNithyanandam.

Hi Akther,You may find all Teradata manuals at, then go to "Resources/Technical Documentation", then select "Online Publication".Once there, you will be able to download all the Teradata manuals in the PDF format.Cheers,Fabio

If you come from Oracle background it is easy.

There are quite a number of hyperlinks within too.
It is very good that you are learning and want to enhance yourself more.
