Hi, I want to start preparation for OCA exam #1Z0-07. Please help me to get -- what is the best book to prepare for the exam, -- any free resources on net (tutorails, site & mocks) -- Practice Questions
But now, for the 10g Oracle version, there is the Oracle Database 10g OCA Exam (1Z0-042). One exam, 75 questions, 65%, and you get Certified.
Then there is another exam for the OCP level.
Nick, you have the OCP 10g. What do you think about it?

As you can expect, OCP 10g DBA is composed of 2 exams only (compared to OCP 9i DBA, there are 4 exams), that the topics covered will be less, and the questions will be required to have deeper knowledge.
For OCA 10g DBA, its objectives covered ALL 4 exams in OCP 9i DBA, and thus, you need to know all things in 1 exam.For OCP 10g DBA, you need to know the advanced topics together with new features, like the Web-based performance tuning tools & graphs, and you need to know how to interpret them.
I would say, OCA 10g DBA is much more difficult than OCA 9i DBA, as well as the OCP.

Nevertheless, I'd rather pay half the price and study more for the last release of Oracle's certification (i.e. 10g) than going for the 9i version.
