My question might sound silly: I just started reviewing OCA/OCP Introduction to Oracle 9i SQL Study Guide for exam 1Z0-007. I have had difficulties to start iSQL*Plus. I really have no idea of how to find the URL of my Oracle HTTP Server. I meant, when I was taking Oracle Database (SQL*Plus) classes in school, I was never told what the Oracle HTTP Server was and how to conncet to it. To use SQL*Plus, I just needed to start my Oracle Enterprise Manager Console first, and then log into the SQL*Plus. But it seems I have to use iSQL*Plus in order to take the Exam. Also, if my computer itself can be used as Oracle HTTP Server, why when I typed "http;//localhost:8080/isqlplus", I got error of 'can not find server'? Anyone, please, help me.

"But it seems I have to use iSQL*Plus in order to take the Exam" As someone who has already taking the exam, I can say you do not need to use iSQL*Plus in order to take the Exam. There is only one question regarding iSQL and it is really easy. Actually it is an answer more than a question. Mark
Thank you for your reply Mark. I knew you because of the discussion following your post of passing 007 exam in July. Here is a late congratulation from me. So how long did it take you to prepare the exam? I hope I can clear it in two months, given that I can steal some of my working time
Well Yingie, I took the exam right when I completed the 007 Oracle class. It wasn't from Oracle Univeristy, but from UCI, University of California Irvine. It was a ten week class, 4 hours each time. I also have a lot of SQL querying experience from work. So I am not sure how much time it takes to study? Sorry I can't help there. Good Luck Mark
My inputs are - if you are using queries day in and day out - then I guess it is a matter of only getting to know some of the specific Oracle 9i Syntax and functions to be used in conjunction with your queries. At any rate - you can do it under 2 months if you can concentrate hard on it for atleast an hour a day. ( Assuming you have SQL Experience ! ) Regards, Praveen
