I am preparing for the 8i upgrade exam. Has anyone passed it recently. i need to know which chapters are not included in exams and how many questions came from each chapter.
Does anyone have any questions?
Thank you very much ,it really helped but anyone there who has recently passed the exam because as far as i know oracle8 certification is going to expire on 31 march 2002.
Olny some Oracle8 exams will retire in March, but the Oracle 8 cert will not. You can finish 4 exams by the end of March, take PL/SQL after March to get Oracle8 certified.
Then you can take 8 to 8i upgrade exam to become 8i certified.
Do you have any further information about oracle 8i upgrade exam???
I took the exam in Dec here is the breakdown:
Java in the database - 1
Optimizer and Query - 7
Summary Managment - 6
Indexes and Index-Organized Tables - 3
Object Relational Fetaures and LOBs - 3
Partitioning Imporvements - 6
Oracle Universial Installer: Migration and Upgrade - 3
Tablespace Management - 6
Database Resourse Manager - 2
Manageability Enhancements - 3
Availability and Recoverability Enhancements - 8
Features of Net8 - 1

Do you remember some questions??

What about other chapters in manual???
What you have used for preparation?
Was it a hard exam?
I've been an Oracle DBA for about 8 years. I preped for the test by using 8i, reading the Exam Cram for the 8i upgrade and the chapters in the Oracle DBA Exam Guide by Jason Couchman. I do not give out examples of questions as it is againt the OCP aggrement.
From the Oracle Certification Site
How does this affect current Oracle8 OCPs?
All OCPs certified on Oracle8 will retain their Oracle8 OCP credential even after the track is retired, and will continue to receive all OCP benefits and recognition for your proven expertise.
I too plan on doing the 8i upgrade, I heard from a frined that the STS did not prepare well. Exam cram, Couchman book should cover most of the areas to pass the exam
Only chapter in ILT course books I didn't have a question on was ...
15. Advanced Queing
Looking at the other way, greatest concentration of questions were on...
3. Query and Optimizer Enhancements
4. Summary Management
7. Partitioning Improvements
