I want to pass on a couple of tips for those future dba's preparing for the B&R exam and to thank those who tipped me on preparing with Sybex.

I am using the Sybex study guide, a full version of 8i and the Oracle documentation set for my training.

I passed with 77% ... I thought I would score higher as I was not having a problem with the Sybex practice tests, but in reality the exam questions were a lot tougher.

I found the Oracle documentation critical for preparing for this test. Specifically the sections on RMAN and Standalone databases.

If anyone has some tips on the Performance Tuning I would appreciate it.
