Plz help a beginner

Post by chintu1680 » Fri Jun 13, 2008 8:03 pm

Iam from a non-it background. I have been studying COBOL, JCL and DB2 for couple of months. Now iam pretty much comfortable with all these. I dont have any real time experience. How should i practice these things so that i become more comfortable with the working on mainframe.
Can anybody guide me for eg: If i take Jcl what are the main things which i need more practice on the mainframe. I have mainframe connection to my PC.

In the sameway COBOL .I wrote some programs and i have seen some real time programs. Now how i need to pratice the programs what concepts i need to practice more. Can anybody guide me in a proper way.

Please any senior can guide me. I will be very thankful to them as iam looking forward to make a carrer in software.
