If you are going to take OCA 9i DBA, yes, you can start with 1z0-007. You can use ILT materials provided by Oracle University, or use the Sybex book
OCA/OCP: Introduction to Oracle9i� SQL Study Guide. In order to get OCA 9i DBA, you have to complete 1z0-031 Fundamental I as well. You can use the book OCA/OCP: Oracle9i� DBA Fundamentals I Study Guide.

However, if you are going to take OCA 10g DBA, you only have to take 1 exam: 1z0-042 Oracle 10g Administration I. You can use ITL materials, or the Sybex book OCA: Oracle 10g Administration I Study Guide (1Z0-042).

Good luck.


SCJP 1.2, OCP 9i DBA, SCWCD 1.3, SCJP 1.4 (SAI), SCJD 1.4, SCWCD 1.4 (Beta), ICED (IBM 287, IBM 484, IBM 486), SCMAD 1.0 (Beta), SCBCD 1.3, ICSD (IBM 288), ICDBA (IBM 700, IBM 701), SCDJWS, ICSD (IBM 348), OCP 10g DBA (Beta), SCJP 5.0 (Beta), SCJA 1.0 (Beta), MCP(70-270), SCBCD 5.0 (Beta), SCJP 6.0, SCEA for JEE5 (in progress)
