Hi There,

Mods, I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask about SQL certification exam.

I just cleared OCEWCD and now I want to prepare for 1z0-047 : http://www.oraclecertificationprep.com/apex/f?p=OCPSG:EXAM_DETAILS:0::NO::P2_EXAM:1Z0-047#.UrnJyNIsLgE

For all Java Certifications it was very easy to get the guidance on how to go about getting any Java Certificate, but for SQL Expert I cannot find any proper guidance. Would appreciate if any one can help on the following

1) Best Book to refer
a) Study Guide for 1Z0-047: Oracle Database SQL Expert: Oracle Certification Prep by Mathew Morris OR
b) OCA Oracle Database SQL Certified Expert Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-047) (With CD-ROM) 1st Edition by Steve O'Hearn http://www.flipkart.com/oca-oracle-database-sql-certified-expert-exam-guide-exam-1z0-047-with-cd-rom-1st/p/itmczynwjy6r6fhy?pid=9780070701410&otracker=from-search&srno=t_1&query=047&ref=2eb9bcb6-2e60-4ae8-b82d-67aec740e5c4
c) Or is there any other book to refer from

2) Best Mock Test Software
Which is the best mock test software available for this Exam. (Enthuware made preparation for all the Java exams feel like a breeze)

3) Forum
Is there any other forum as good as this one, which discusses about SQL certification experiences and related question/answers.

Thanks in advance for your feedback

Regards,
Kumar

I've moved this to our "other certifications" forum. Searching this forum for the exam number gives some suggestions such as this one.

Hi Kumar

I recomment you Steve O'Hearn book. It's a full study guide. When you are "ready" for exam, read Mathew Morris summary study guide.
I didn't use any Mock Test software. But Oracle recommends something on their exam page.

I recommend you OraFAQ: SQL division http://www.orafaq.com/forum/f/1/ and training section http://www.orafaq.com/forum/f/35/0/
Oracle hosts also a community (OTN network)
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
