Hi all ,

I wanted to do Pl/SQL certification....

Please let me know

1. Which certification I should go about?

2. In OCA There are two paper --1. 1Z0-007(SQL) and 2. 1Z0-147(Pl/SQL)
Should I do both or only one paper is enough for SQl certification.

3. Let me know which books & study material I have to buy that is enough to clear exam for OCA (Pl/SQL)?

4. How much time is sufficient to clear the paper with good percentage?

Please me soon..

First complete 1Z0-007, this covers the SQL part, "Introduction to Oracle 9i SQL" is a good book for this certification. I think the author is Couchman.
Then you can go for the PL/SQL version of the exam.

Time required for the preparation of exam varies for each person, depending upon his skillset, experiance etc ..
If you have working experiance in Oracle then 1 week should be enough to clear the SQL part.

Thanks & regards, Srini
