PearsonVue just organizes exam. Everything else - questions, passing score, syllabus, evaluation process, evaluators, certification dispatching etc. belongs to Oracle. Generally your certificate should arrive within 4 weeks. If it doesn't, then you'll have to get in touch with Oracle's certification department.
Important : Do not loose exam report card. Till you get hard-copy of certificate, and your data is upgraded in Oracle's and PearsonVue's systems, that report card is the only proof you have (this kind of worst case scenario very very rarely happens, so don't worry, its just a precaution )
Do you have any tips to share with us how to pass the exam?
You don't need to tell us the questions in the exam.
But I am interested to know how to . I am going to take it at the end of this month and I am getting a little nervous. I have been reading K&B's book , their practice exams and the other book by Mughal and Rasmusen.
I'm sure Yassine will share the tips, but in the meantime, here are my two cents:

A slight nervousness is absolutely fine, nothing wrong in it. I don't remember a single certification when I was not nervous

This changes from person to person, but I would suggest : make sure you are very comfortable with first book before going for second book. No doubt Mughal's book is excellent, but in my opinion, K&B book alone is sufficient. Once you are done with your revision etc., go for first sample test in K&B (so that you'll have buffer time just in case you need it). If you can clear all 3 sample tests from K&B without any help, then you are in very good shape for exam. K&B's sample tests are much difficult than actual test (and then, if you wish, you can directly go for Mughal's sample test)
