Hi,

here is a certification path for PL/SQL Developer:
link

OCA - means "Oracle Certified Associate", this is an entry level certificate
OCP - "Oracle Certified Proffesional", this is higher level than OCA
OCM - "Oracle Certified Master", this is the highest level

To get OCM you must be OCP, to get OCP - you must first get OCA.

To get OCA PL/SQL, you must pass one of the PL/SQL exam from these two: 1Z0-147 (older exam, based on Oracle 9i) or 1Z0-144 (newer exam, based on 11g),
and additionally one of the SQL exam from these three: 1Z0-007, 1Z0-051 or 1Z0-047
1Z0-007 and 1Z0-051 can be passed online (you can take it from home) and cost 125 USD,
1Z0-047 is a proctored exam (you must take it in the Certification Center), costs more ~200 USD and is tighter than 1z0-007 and 1z0-051,
but it gives you an additional certificate - Oracle SQL Expert.

1z0-047 is not older.... they just keep cycling in newer questions. The current book by Oracle Press covers 10g and 11g. And it tells you what you what's on and not on the exam.
