hi all...... --i an j2ee developer , i know somw sql and pl/sql, i want to take certificate on oracle just SQL and PL/SQL..i do not know what is this certificate name.......? --what is the good book ? --another thing, what is the order of oracle certificates?
Oracle basically has two developer certifications paths: PL-SQL - It a certification language test, like SCJP Forms - Its is a proprietary web based GUI used by Oracle only.
The "Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate" (OCA) certification requiresd the following exams:
1Z0-001 Introduction to Oracle: SQL and PL/SQL. 1Z0-147 Program with PL/SQL
I used the following books: - Oracle 8i Certified Professional - SQL & PL/SQL Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-001) Jason S. Couchman - ISBN 0-07-219153-8 - Very good book. Covers all the exam subjects
- Oracle Developer PL/SQL Program units exam guide (Exam 1Z0-101) Steve O' Hearn - ISBN 0-07-219336-0 - Very good book as well. Unfortunately it covers only 80% of the exam. Some topics for 1Z0-147 are not covered. You have to search for additional sources.
I personally recommend, Feurstein books. They are the bible for any PL-SQL developer.
At [ UD: removed links to copyrighted material ] there were some old editions of PL-SQL books but still valid for certification purposes. Uunfortunately the page was deleted. I guess if you search in then net probably you will find them again. [ August 03, 2007: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
