hi all i am planning to take oracle 9i intro to sql exam..can anyone tell me how long will it take to prepare for the exam.Also i want to know if any free mock exams are available on the net. Thanks Chitra
Well preparing for any exam is always dependant on previous experience with the testing topics. Have you been an SQL Query builder for a while or just starting. Have you been working with Oracle for a bit? Those are the questions that kind of determine how long it takes to prepare. I haven't found any free mocks, so if anyone else has links, let us know. Have you taken Oracle's class on Intro to SQL? Everything that is on the test is from that class, and book. Mark
hi Mark, thanks for your response.I have little experience(6months) working with SQL and Pl/Sql Btw,is that oracle class necessary to pass the exam? i thought the book(exam guide by biju thomas) would be sufficient Thanks Chitra
Yes the book should be sufficient. It will have mock questions and becuase it is for the exam, it will go over all the correct topics for this exam. If you do well in their mock questions then you will do well with the exam. The exam is online, so you really could be taking the test "open book" Mark
Hi, Chitra, Would you please be a little bit specific about the book name you mentioned? biju thomas has servel books with similar topic. Following is a list of his books. (Clearly he is smart at making money.) 1. OCA/OCP: Oracle9i DBA Fundamentals I Study Guide 2. Ocp: Oracle8I Dba SQL and Pl/SQL Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-001 3. OCA/OCP: Introduction to Oracle9i SQL Study Guide thanks. shan
