Thank you for ur suggestions,But i have a doubt regarding various levels of CERTIFICATIONS.Do we need to take one course of sure for OCA,OCP and OCM in each stage or is it ok with one course with whole of the certification process till i do certification as an OCM.
I might not have the correct information but I checked from the Oracle people regarding the Developer path in which there are four exams: 1. Oracle 9i SQL 2. Oracle 9i PL/SQL 3. Internet applications 1 4. Internet applications 2 For these exams, no course is required. You can prepare on you own at home and then appear for the exam. I am not sure about the other certifications. Vibha.
I try summerize the requirement: For OCA DBA You have no need to take any courses for certified. You have to pass 1z0-001/1z0-007 AND 1z0-031. For OCP DBA In addition to pass the 4 required exams: 1z0-001/1z0-007, 1z0-031, 1z0-032 and 1z0-033, you HAVE TO take 1 course (any DBA related courses) in order to certify. Otherwise, you wont get any certs even you have passed all 4 required exams. For OCM DBA In addition to pass a 2-day practical exams, you need to take 2 courses that shown in the OCM course list. Since I have not considered any Developer Track and Oracle9i AS, I can only give you DBA track info.
