Oracle posted an aggregated list of their relevant tutorials.

If you've never taken an Oracle exam before, I advise you to buy a book anyway. Some questions can be tricky. You are paying $300 for the exam. If you don't pass on the first try, you are paying another $300. A single paid resource is less than 10% of this. You can get a book for $30-40. The enthuware mock exam software is $10.
