I have gone thru the sites and also I have downloded the help from technet and also I am referring some books. Now I am working on oracle as Jr. DBA . But still I feel I should I go for the SQLPLUS and PLSQL exams as I have experience of working on them. Can you just let me know how I should prepare for it from the exam point of view. How much stress I have to give for advancements in Oracle 8i. I would like to know it for both SQL and PLSQL.
Thanks in Advance
If u are strictly confidential in pl/sql then, please go for pl/sql
Otherwise please read thorough 'oracle architecture' take ur
own time. I think it is enough for 10 days.
There is a book called Oracle Architectue for oracle 8 (B.Browinsky(the author spelling may be wrong)).
I have decided to go for 'Oracle 8 Architecture' and then for PL/SQL and then SQLPLUS. Can I get a sample qustion paper . Especially for Oracle 8 Architecture because the topic seems to big. I 'll be very grateful to you if you can send me email on firstname.lastname@example.org
