Online exam about 1Z0-051

Hi,
After preparing for 3 weeks, I would like to take an exam in 1Z0-051.
I prepared through 1Z0-051 exam guide. Is it enough to study for an exam or anyother oracle guide may need to take exam?
I need some practice tests also. So, please suggest me, for practice tests.
What are the procedures to take exam 1Z0-051 in home?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
The exam guide comes with a practice test that you can do. There is also a 10 question sample on the exam page (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=303&p_certName=SQ1Z0_051). Assuming you score highly (80%~) on both of those at the first attempt (doesn't count when you already know the answer) then I'd say you're ok to take it.
You can book the exam from Pearson Vue's website: http://www.pearsonvue.com/oracle/
If you're taking it from home then you specify "non-proctored" and go through the steps from there.

    Please read:
    1) The forum faq (announcment stickey post at he top of this forum) [http://forums.oracle.com/forums/ann.jspa?annID=794]
    2) The certification blog on [http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=39]
    3) The oracle certifiaction site has lots currently on [http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=39]
    (View all certifications and drill down to a certifaction or exam), you should be able to find the exam topics.
    4) Search in this forums for posts on 1z0-051.
    5) If you are serious about Oracle also take time to become familar with the Oracle Technology website [http://www.oracle.com/technology] which has links to documentation and tutorials and other resources.
    6) IMPORTANT: Some 'online docs' you may find, or are directed to, or may be offered (particularly braindumps), may be unauthorised materials and using them could end up with you losing credit for any exam/certification you may take.
    Hopefully you will find these references and places to search useful.

  • Help about 1Z0-051?

    For preparing 1Z0-051 exam, where can i get the practice questions fro each topic in the book recommended by Oracle.As the questions in the book are too easy as compared to the question that comes in exam.
    Please reply

    The only approved practice questions/exams are those created by Kaplan (Selftestsoftware and Transcender).  Most of the others are brain dumps.
    There are links to both in my 1Z0-051 resources page:

  • About 1Z0-051 & 1Z0-052 11g

    Is there a waiting period for taking the second part of the administrative certified associate exam 1Z0-052?
    Should it be taken right away or immediately after 1Z0-052?

    1Z0-052 isn't really the 'second' part of the certification.  It is generally taken second, but that's not a requirement.  The order you take the tests in is completely arbitrary.  Most people take 051 first and 052 second, but that's not required.  I talk about that in my blog here:
    Oracle Certification Prep: What Order Should I take Oracle Certification Exams In?
    That said, I'm going to have to disagree with John (something I don't do often).  Unless you are really comfortable with the material for both exams, I would not recommend taking them both in one day.  John is an extremely knowledgeable DBA and splitting his concentration between two exams is not a problem.  For that matter, I originally became an Oracle OCP when I worked for Oracle's Support team. They had Prometric create a lab in the building where we worked for a day.  Since they were only going to be there the one day, I took all four of the tests required at the time for the 7.3 certification -- two before lunch and two after.  Again, though, I was very familiar with the information being tested. 
    If you are not 100% confident of your mastery of the material, I think that you will have a greater chance of success if the tests are separated by at least a day or two so that you can focus all of your concentration on one at a time. The overlap between 051 and 052 is not very significant and 052 is generally considered to be the more difficult of the two exams. It is more important that you take enough time preparing for it that you are comfortable with the information than taking it as soon as possible after passing 051.

  • How to pass 1Z0-051 exam

    I prepared to this exam well by reading and implementing the book topics of "OCA Oracle Database 11g:SQL Fundamentals I Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-051)" + plus articles reads from Oracle website itself; but unfortunately i failed twice, the reason isn't that i did not digest the SQL material or found hard topics to understand, but it is more about the timing of the exam which it limit my thinking process and make me confuse to select the right answer; as you have 70 questions to read, understand, deduce and then answer, as in average time for each question is one minutes and twenty seconds.
    I admitted that sometimes i have problem in calculation, but i believe if time is aloud more to me i would easily figure out the question.
    I need some advice and instruction here if that possible.
    Thanks in advance

    and this [http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=179]
    You don't mention if you took this test online .... for various reason my personal opinion is people may be under more time pressure taking it online. I have read somewhere also that if you retake an exam within 5 days you are statisitically almost highly likely to fail it again.
    The time element is obviously one part of these exams. 1z0-051 can be done within the time with a little to spare.
    Not all questions will take the same amount of time.
    In a proctored exam you have the following aids available to you:-
    - A timer indicating time left
    - The ablility to mark a question for review later.
    - The ability to leave a question blank.
    - The ability to make notes on wipe board.
    Decide a strategy of how you are going to approach questions. For instance i may choose to:
    - If I know the answer to a question straight away, mark it, double check then move to next question.
    - If I am unsure mark the question, make best possilble answer, note on my wiprepad any certaily wrong answers.
    - If I think I am going to take too long on a question (more than 2 mins) make notes of where I'm at, mrk it for review and move on.
    Basically you should be able to get through some questions fairly quickly. Others may take longer.
    You may also be resented with exhibits and things ..... its very easy to take too much time looking at all the information and getting overwhelmed.
    Read the question, elminate wrong answers and move on as quickly as possilbe.
    The should already have been practice exams on the CDROM with the book you have bought. These are less useful the more you use them, as you remember the answers.
    Additional practice tests can be purchased from [http://www.oracle.com/global/us/education/certification/sts.html] (Either buy transcender or SelftestSoftware, not both).
    You may be able to speed up your calculations with time, however if you are having trouble with them permanently then perhaps this is not the career for you, as you may have trouble if you get a job also.
    However you may find with practice it all comes into place and you speed up.

    Please what do you think ?I dont know what your background is, but you would probably need to organise some training and background as well.
    You also need to to attend and get verified Oracle approved training to achieve DBA OCP
    .... One step at a time though, and OCA Oracle Database 11g SQL Fundamentals I Exam Guide SQL Fundamentals I Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-051) is good value for low investment. But you may need to checkout other training.
    The training link mentioned in an earlier post link may or may not be effective, however I do not believe it covers the oracle verified training pre-req to achieve DBA OCP.
    Worth checking https://workforce.oracle.com/pls/wdp/new_home.main to see if there is cheap (not always best quality) training available near you.

  • 1Z0-051 SQL Fundamentals 1 Exam Guide Problem with loading HR schema

    Hi,
    I’m new to Oracle Databases and have started studying with Oracle Press 11g SQL Fundamentals 1 Exam Guide 1Z0-051.
    The book is good except the problem I have is the HR schema they talk about is made up off seven tables (Countries, Departments, Employees, Job_History, Jobs, Locations and Regions).
    But the HR schema that I get is only made up off 4 tables (Bonus, Dept, Emp, Salgrade).
    Can anyone who has used this book please advise what I’m doing wrong and how I can get the correct Schema please.

    Hi,
    Well I haven't used that book but with whatever little I know , I shall try to attempt the question.
    There was an ancient schema for Human Resource, SCOTT which is haivng 4 tables only. Since 9i, there were an introduction of new schemas like HR ( Human Resource), OE( Order Entry) and so on. So the book is referring to that.
    Now when you create the database using Database Configuration Assistant, there comes an option with a check box, that do you want to create sample schemas or not? If you select that option, you get all these schemas in your db. If not, you only get the old SCOTT schema.
    If you have missed creating these schemas( which I belive is the case) than you need to manually create them. Here is the description for how to create them manually.

  • Doubt in 1Z0-051 course book

    Hello,
    I am preparing to write Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I Exam Number: 1Z0-051.
    I am refering the book OCA Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-051).
    In the second chapter dealing with select statements it mentions that though sql queries are not case sensitive, the data stored in the database is case sensitive. For example:
    select....where JOB_ID='SALES'; and
    select....where JOB_ID='sales' will yield different results.
    I have performed the above queries in 11.2.0.1.0 and got that the same output for both queries.
    So was there an error in the book or am I wrong in interpreting it.

  • 1Z0-051 advise

    Hi All ,
         I took 1Z0-051 last night after several months of studying and failed by 3 percentage points. I basically ran out of time. I knew how to answer most questions, but the queries were just too time consuming for me.  Any advise? i did not expect 2 hours of extreme concentration having most questions to be queries with several close answers.  I'm not even sure how else to study or what i did differently.  Is there a good strategy that I'm not seeing?   I basically ran out of time and had to mark the last 10 questions randomly.  I mean common Oracle , what is the wisdom here?

    Time management is always a factor in certification exams.  1Z0-051 isn't the worst (so far in my experience, that title goes to 1Z0-144).  However, because it is an unproctored exam, Oracle University had to ensure that the time limit was short enough that it would not be feasible for someone to look up answer to each question.  John's suggestion is reasonable, although I always recommend that when 'skipping' questions that you always put in your best guess, mark the question, and then move on to the next one.  That way if you don't have time to come back, there is at least a chance you got it correct.  I haven't read John's technique article, but here is one I created a few months ago that was published at GoCertify.  The last three tips are most relevant here.
    Oracle Certification: 10 Tips for any Exam | GoCertify
    However, from your note, you are indicating that most of the questions were taking you too much time.  That unfortunately is just a matter of familiarity with SQL.  Someone who can read SQL, but does not have much experience with it might take three minutes answering a given question while a person who has worked with Oracle SQL for years would complete it in one.  There is no cure for that except practicing writing queries until you are more comfortable with it.  You can also check out some of the study resources I have gathered at my site for that exam.    All of them are certification safe and most are free.  In particular, there are links to a number of videos on YouTube of Oracle SQL intro courses.
    Oracle Certification Prep: Exam details and preparation resources for 1Z0-051
    One suggestion that I can make when trying to pick the correct answer from a list of similar SQL statements is not to look for the right one initially but rather identify the obviously wrong ones.  Generally there will be at least one or two with an obvious flaw -- the wrong number or order of columns in the SELECT clause -- an invalid comparison in the WHERE clause, etc.  I'll scan through them and quickly eliminate these from consideration before turning to the remaining ones

  • 1Z0-051 exercises for preparing the exam

    Hello, I'm preparing for the 1Z0-051 exam and It could be useful for me some link o similar with exercises about SQL.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

    What you are asking for and what the original poster was is 'guided practice'.  The only thing that really fits that description is lab exercises. Generally these are only created as part of a class.  I don't know of anyone that creates labs and puts them online.
    I always encourage candidates to load Oracle XE on their computer and practice with the topics covered on certification exams, If you have any certification book for 1Z0-051, it will have some SQL examples inside it.  They probably won't be labs which tell you exactly what to do in a step-by-step fashion. However, you can execute the same SQL on your machine if you have an Oracle instance.  The Oracle sample schemas are available online.  My study guides have a sample schema that can be downloaded from my website.  I believe the Oracle Press 051 book likewise has a schema (or possibly it uses the sample schemas).  Just typing in the examples straight from the book is a start.  You can then play with those examples -- varying them to see what works and what does not.  For example -- if an example shows a multi-table select the INNER JOIN syntax, take that SQL and modify it to the USING syntax or the NATURAL JOIN syntax.
    The 1Z0-051 exam is all about the capabilities and syntax of SQL... basically what can and cannot be done. Much of this is really memorization of the syntax and certain facts -- like what clauses a subquery can appear in. Executing working SQL and then modifying it to see what works and what does not can help to cement those facts in your memory.

  • Is the Oracle Database Express Edition 11g Release 2 enough for preparing for the 1Z0-051 and 1Z0-144 Exams?

    I am planning on getting certified as an OCA PL\SQL developer. I will be teaching myself and I have all the material needed to prepare.
    Except, I don't have a database that I can solve exercises on and practice commands.
    The two exams I will be taking are the :
    1Z0-051 exam: Oracle Database 11g: SQL Fundamentals I
    1Z0-144 exam: Oracle Database 11g: Program with PL/SQL
    So is the Oracle Database Express Edition 11g Release 2 is enough ?
    If it is not what other options do I have (I am running Windows 8.1) ?

    Yes -- 11gXE should be sufficient for practicing the vast majority of the skills required for those two exams.  I *think* that PARALLEL is not enabled in XE, so you could not test the functionality referred to in the "Use NOCOPY hint, PARALLEL ENABLE hint and DETERMINISTIC clause" topic of 1Z0-144.  I don't consider that to be a significant problem, however.  The material from the manual should suffice for the questions you'll see.
    As for what other options you have, you could download and install VirtualBox (free from Oracle).  You could then make a virtual machine on your Windows 8.1 machine and install Oracle Linux (free from Oracle).  You could then download and install Oracle Enterprise for Linux and install it on your virtual machine (allowable under the licensing when used for learning purposes only).  I have a similar setup on my Windows 7 laptop that I use when I absolutely have to test some feature that requires Oracle Enterprise.  Mind you, when I have the VM running on my system... it is ssssslllllloooooowwwwww because of the memory requirements.  I talk about using virtual machines as a certification aid in the following article:

    Hello I has prepared for testing of course 1Z0-051, but how I saw on Pearson Vue site for this exam is classed as Not-Protected exam, what that mean, that I can try to pass exam from the home without going to the some test center?
    And also that will not be the problem, for my next exam which i want to prepare is Protected and should be examine from any of the test centers

    PROCTORED : See for exmaple: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/proctored
    Essentially for Oracle Certifcation Program Purposes:
    A Proctored exam msut be taken at a Pearson VUE Testing under the supervision/camera etc.
    A non proctered exam may be taken online without such stringent supervision. ( It may also be taken at a test center as well if one chooses).
