Am back again, excited to share my experience on how I passed 1z0-047 - SQL Certified Expert.
I passed this exam today with 93%. In my view it is important for a Java Developer to have working knowledge of SQL - with this thought in mind I aimed for this exam. At the same time this is a complete exam in itself - i.e. you will get the final certificate on completing this exam. It is much tougher than 1z0-051 though.
This is the only book that will teach you all the Fundamentals to become an expert in SQL on Oracle Database. I even purchased ucertify book and mathew morris book which in my opinion are not that helpful if you have the time to read Steve O'Hearn's complete book (word for word)
Time Duration With 0 experience in SQL, i think within 30 days you can crack this exam.
Questions Only thing lacking is Enthuware style questions to prepare you for the minute details, only suggestion to overcome that is that read every word of the book correctly and code, code & code.
I am also planning to give this exam.
I have studied the Steve`s book.
Feeling good also about my studies.
I have some concerns ,
1. Time allotted
2. Practice test ( I have just done questions from steve`s book and from the cd 2 practice tests)
3. Which part you think should be very good.
