Hi all,

I would like to start studying for Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate program.

Can someone recommend some books for studying towards the first exam:

1Z0-001 Introduction to Oracle: SQL� and PL/SQL™

Also are there other forums for people studying towards Oracle certification ?

Regarding studying SQL and PL/SQL, I recommend the Oracle documentation, which is available from:

There is the SQL Reference and the PL/SQL User's Guide and Reference

There are technical forums available via the OTN Web site.

By the way, Oracle have just released an eXpress Edition (XE) which is free. Check out the OTN Web site for more details.

Good Luck,

Hi Avi,

thanks for the reponse. I was specifically after books that help you prepare for certification, specifically for the below exam:

1Z0-001 Introduction to Oracle: SQL� and PL/SQL�

Does anyone know any books they could recommend.
