Passed 1z0-047 : SQL Certified Expert with 93%

Hi All,

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.

Below is the link on how i passed Java exams till OCEWCD - 7 months of study and achieved 4 certificates till date

Study Guides
To clear 1z0-047 please refer the book by Steve O'Hearn
http://www.amazon.com/Oracle-Database-Certified-Expert-1Z0-047/dp/0071614214

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.

Once again, it feels good to have one more certificate and now will start learning HTML and JavaScript

Wish you all the best.

Regards,
Kumar

Congrats for your result.

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.

Hi Mahtab Alam,

Thanks for your wishes.

1. Time Allotted
2 hours for 70 questions

2. Practice test
Questions are tougher than the questions given in steve's book and in the CD. You really need to understand core concepts explained in the book

3. Which part you think should be very good.
I didn't understand your this question.

Wishing you all the best.

Regards,
Kumar
