For certification material please visit the page:

You can also use the official Teradata product documentation material (PDF formats freely available to everyone) at the link: E.g. If you are going for the Basics exam you can take a look at the Introduction to Teradata material found online.

The official documentation is also found with the Teradata Express package which allows anybody to test and learn the Teradata System in an SMP PC testing-environment.

Can you please tell me which Teradata manual to go through for the TE122 exam. I've studied the 1091.pdf manual for the TE121 exam.

It would be better if you take a Teradata course (Teradata SQL and Advanced Teradata SQL) as it will be more convenient for you than reading the manuals. The manuals would be good as a study-source if you already have some experience with Teradata SQL or at least you can experiment with the language and tools while reading. As for the manuals you can read, there is a big load which can include: SQL Fundamentals 1141, SQL Data Types and Literals 1143, SQL DDL 1144, SQL Functions/Operators/Expressions/and Predicates 1145, SQL Data Manipulation Language 1146, SQL Data Control Language 1149, SQL Data Definition Language 1184,  SQL Quick Reference 1510, Probably you won't need all the information in the manuals and there might be some data you need missing from the manuals I mentioned (I'm just guessing). so make sure that you understand ALL the TE122 exam objectives: -

• Teradata Extensions
• Data Definition Language (DDL)
• Data Manipulation Language (DML)
• Data Control Language (DCL)
• Views and Macros
• Logical and Conditional Expressions
• Data Conversions and Computations
• CASE Expressions
• Subqueries and Correlated Subqueries
• Joins
• Attribute and String Functions
• Set Operations
• Analytical Functions
• Time/Date/Timestamp/Intervals (ANSI vs. TERADATA)
• Stored Procedures Concepts
• Aggregations
• SQL Optimization Concepts

I happen to attend a training by one of the teradata professional named Manohar in Nov'12, he takes online batches every month. I would say it was a very good decision on my part to join that training, not only I learnt alot, but also I perform very well at interviews and my job.



He teaches Developer and Admin tracks both, I happen to the developer track only. He also teaches case studies which bascially prepares you for real time applications. I would recommend anyone to join his classes, worth spending time and money !!


These are some of his youtube videos.



This is his email address, you can directly contact him:

If this guy is really that great, why isn't he answering questions here in DevEx instead of having other users send the same kind of spam over and over again?

The general rule is that all the required exams for a certification must be passed at the same release level.
The exception is that if one already is a Teradata Certified Master at V2R5 level, passing a single Qualifying Exam will permit taking the TD12 Comprehensive Mastery exam. In that case only, it is not necessary to repeat all the individual exams at TD12 level.
Note that the V2R5 exams have been retired for quite some time now.

I had a plan to preapre for TD 12 exms for a long time. But kept delaying it and now I am in a dilemma whether to go for it or wait for the TD14 exams to come in.
i had 2 levels of V2R5 certification and then the TD12 cert exms were released before i could prepare for the rest other exams. 
But can anybody advise me on this. Should I start with TD12 or wait for TD14 ?? 
I wonder if this is the right forum to post this question. If not, please excuse me.
Thank You,
