I need some suggestion about the Sybex book "OCA/OCP - Introduction to Oracle9i SQL Study Guide". Is this book good enough to help you pass the first exam?
Thanks in advance,

That book just does not cover i*SQLPLUS. So, you need to download i*SQLPLUS guide from OTN. As long as you study and hands on practice. Whatever book you use, does not matter. I use 8i exam guide, cos my company only has this. New features in 9i, I look in OTN.
SQL won't change much, just Oracle sqlplus command or function may would have new, example NVL2 in 9i.
