I have already passed 4 of the 5 exams , Administration is definetly the hardest because it covers many many points compared to any other exam.
But after all there is no easy exam here , Oracle is ranked is the most hard exams after Cisco and it is the most valued certification concerning software ( Cisco mainly concentrate on hardware and networking ) ,, it is all about study and it is very common to pass the exam with one or 2 questions over the needed limit.
Wishing you all the best

I was thinking about this last night when I was studing for my last exam, B&R, and I'd have to agree with hnagia, Julian and co. when it comes to the most difficult. That being Architecture and Admin. Simple becaus it covers such a broad range of topics. It's a combination of all exams into one.
Ranking, for Oracle8i exams completed.
a. Architecture & Admin
c. Net Admin
d. Performance Tuning

Depends on what you do most at work, where you feel most confortable. I got all points - 1 or 2 from the RMAN questions and they are almost 1/3 of of B&R. If you have never used RMAN, then B&R is not that easy.
