Oracle 11g OCA certification

I am newbie .I would like to know a good book for Oracle 11g OCA certification ,1Z0-051 and 1Z0-052(with lesser number of mistakes).Appreciate a response.

I can tell you from personal experience that it is extraordinarily difficult to write a technical book with zero defects. Spell-checkers and grammar checkers produce huge numbers of false positives when looking for standard (i.e. non technical) errors. Technical errors are easy to introduce -- forget to add a 'Not' in a sentence, or something similar -- and hard to detect afterward. When I read through my study guides looking for errors, I tend to see what I meant to write.
That said, such defects are normally a tiny fraction of the information contained within certification manuals. A couple of reviews on the Oracle Press 1Z0-052 book written by John Watson mention a couple of errors and then imply the book is filled with more. I've read the book and it is very informative. It contains hundreds of pieces of information and contains about ten errors -- all mentioned in the errata on the McGraw Hill site. The books is good preparation for the text and for learning the basics of being an Oracle DBA.
As Aman indicated, using more than one source is a good way to help to detect inaccuracies. I believe in always using multiple sources and the documentation is generally a good option for that.

  • How to get Oracle 11g OCA, OCM, OCP certification?

    Hi,
    This is my first post! Please pardon my ignorance. I want to get Oracle 11g OCA, OCM, OCP certifications done. How do I go about it? How much does it cost to get these certifications? Could you please suggest a website/url where I can get more information about it.
    Thank you,
    Tracy

    The Oracle Certification Program site should answer your questions.
    Assuming you are trying to get certified on the DBA track (there are many different certification tracks, I'm assuming when you say 11g that you mean to indicate that you're interested in the DBA track), you can see the progression of the exams and the options you have on this page.

  • Oracle 11g Client Certification Matrix

    hi all,
    Can someone point me to Oracle 11g client certification matrix? I was trying to install it on Windows Server 2008R2, but looks like this platform is unsupported. If I manually verify the options the installer thinks are unsafe, will I create an unsupported environment?
    Please advise.
    Thanks in advance,
    Alla

    Which version of 11g ? 11gR1 is not certified with Win2008

  • Oracle 11g database certification

    Hi to all,
    I am an Oracle database 10g OCA certified. I got my certification in 2008; Sadly, I was really busy with many projects during the last 2 years so No time to pass my OCP 10g database exam.
    My question is ; is it better (in time, and money):
    1- pass and upgrade my OCA 10g to OCA 11G and then pass my OCP 11G?
    2- pass my OCP 10G database exam and then do the upgrade exam of OCP 11G?
    Thanks a lot,

    A few points:
    1) There is a Certification forum that discusses exactly these questions;
    2) There is no 'OCA Upgrade' exam, so the 11g OCA is a complete exam from scratch;
    3) OCP 10g + OCP 11g(ug) is 2 exams, OCA 11g + OCP 11g is 2 exams so same price;
    4) OCP 10g + OCP 11g(ug) is 2 'pro' certs, OCA 11g + OCP 11g is 1 'pro' cert.
    However, the upgrade exam does stretch you into areas not normally seen by OCPs in practise. You end up being a guru, of sorts.

  • Oracle 11g OCP certification kit

    I have completed Oracle 11g OCP. As I understand a hands-on training course is manadatory to get the certification kit.
    Can I do a Self-Study CD course or do I have to do Instructor led course?
    Thanks.

    information about that cert is here:

    note the link which says "Complete one of the approved instructor-led online or in-class courses."

  • Oracle Database OCA Certification 11g or 12c ?

    Hi Guys,

    I need your help to decide which certification version will be useful ?
    Suggestion are welcome.

    Thanks
    My rule of thumb is the higher the better.  So on that basis go for 12c rather than 11g.  And your certification will remain active for longer.
    However to get to DBA OCP level you will need to submit an approved authorised training course at some point.  So its best to plan for that early.  If you get your training paid for no problem. If you have to have cheap 11g WDP training nearby or you already have a course which is accepted for 11g then that is valid reasons to to go for 11g.
    Anyway if you study for your SQL exam first it's not a decision you have to make right away.
    The are my personal opinions only.
    .... Its also worth mentioning the 1z0-0[56]3 exam for OCP is a lot about backups ..... and from your background to get into DBA work that could be a critical dealbreaker.
    .... And its also worth mentioning one or two of the exams satisfying the 12c approved list are 2 day courses and therefore (relatively) cheaper.

  • Oracle DB11g OCA certification not yet recieved

    Hi ,
    I have completed OCA 11g certification on 28 Dec 2010.
    In certview its showing as first shipment has done on 29 Dec 2010. I haven't received the certificate yet.
    I have mailed '[email protected]' regarding this issue on Feb 16 2011 but couldn see any reply.
    please Help.

    Hi Xaheer,
    Thanks for the response.
    Address given is right. I have already received some communications from oracle like invoice in the same address.
    its been more than 7 days i mailed '[email protected]'.
    it would be better if i can know the status?
    thanks,
    IrshadAt the end of thread {thread:ID=2172277} Certification Forum Moderator indicated that there seems to have been a delay in success kits recently.
    This probably results in ocp-fulfillment_ww being swamped with emails (I believe ocp fulfillment is in Delhi and I suspect they will feel like they are in the monsoon season deluged with emails from the rest of India).
    Oracle could hire more poeple to answer the emails quicker and increase the exam costs.
    It also happens they when Oracle says success kit shipped its likely most people think most people mean the success kit has been posted. I suspect it actually means an order has been placed to the printers/assemblers to generate a success kit (Letter, certificate, credit card); and it probably takes a little while for a batch to be assembled and sent out.
    You are very close to the 6/8 week limit that Oracle Target for succss kit delivery, and most likely it will arrive in the next couple of weeks. However of course sometimes post goes missing. The Certification Forum Moderator will probably reply on a couple of days on this one.

  • Question for 11g OCA certifications

    Hi All,
    I completed the 1Z0-007: Intro to 9i SQL back in 2003 and never got round to completing the other cert exams.
    My question is, is this exam still valid or would the first exam need to take place again? Do the exam reults expire?
    I see it is still mentioned as as one of the exams you can complete for it.
    Thanks for the help.
    Stuart

    Yes, you are very much eligible for writing OCA 11g Certification Exams. All you need to do is, while registering for OCA Exam, that show your Oracle 9i SQL Exam details to the Prometric center and other details when you passed that exam.
    For more information on OCA/OCP 11g Exams take a look at the below URL.

  • Study material for Oracle 10g OCA certification

    Hi every one.
    My Name is Ash living in Edmonton Canada.
    Currently, I am trying to prepare to take the OCA exam. My study material is "OCA 10g Administration 1 Study Guide by Chip DaWes, Bob Bryta, Joseph C.Johnson, Mathew Welshan". I am not sure if this is the right study material. Could any body please give me a feed back, how I can prepare for the exam? Also I would to know if there a local oracle group in Edmonton vicinity

    Hello Ash,
    I am also enrolled in an OCA course in the beginning of June 08, and I have used that, the Oracle Database 10g : Administration Workshop 1, and purchased the pass4sure CD.
    I recommend against the pass4sure, only because the PDF's had some sort of security lock, and I was unable to open them, even though I legitimately purchased the product.
    Good luck!

    Asking for dumpsAnd remember that cheaters who are caught will lose their certification and perhaps lose their chance at any certification in the industry. Using Brain Dumps is considered cheating. Using Gunners is considered cheating. Passing an exam based on purely memorized material without understanding the material is as bad as cheating in the long run.

  • Oracle9i/Oracle 10g OCA certification

    I have worked on Oracle 9i database and i have basic knowledge about Sql commands and i am planning to go for Oracle 10g Certification does it make any difference if i do not take ORACLE 9i Certification and directly go on to do my Oracle 10g Certification .
    Help Me

    You are very much eligible for writing Oracle 10g OCP, even if you have experience in Oracle 9i. What you can do is, read the Oracle 10g New Features, and then you will have both Oracle 9i & 10g knowledge.
    Best of luck.

  • Preperation for Oracle 10g OCA exams

    Hi all,
    I am interested in finding out what exam prep guides helped you out the most for Oracle 10g OCA certification exams. Also what test exams helped you out the most for the 10g OCA exams?
    Got exams coming up next week, so please help!!!
    Thanks!

    >>
    Believe me, just for the certification sake you wanna be OCA?
    I have come across of people who simply read test exam question, go to the testing centers and do pass the exams. What they really loosing here with this approch is that no confidence of their skills, not reading Oracle docs and testing the same, and when they face interview they had to find really some difficult question where there won't be any multiple choice list. This make the interviewrs or the concern person feeling that the OCA/P has really no strength.
    I would rather keep myslef reading the docs and doing the R&D before I appear for the exam.
    As you said, you don't want to spend much money for getting OCA, its like wasting your money completing an OCA, if you don't answer interviewer questions and didn't get the job.
    I am not discouraging you, rather, trying to put you on some confidence ROAD.
