    You can use Sybex Study Guides & STS. They are good to pass all the developer exams.

    My mistake Sybex study guides are good for dba track. The first book can help you to pass the sql exam. For rest use couchman's developer guide.

    Hi Julie,
    Which exam do you go first to?
    I suggest you buy Couchman's and/or Allen's book.
    Check here to see which books I am talking about:

    http://shop.osborne.com/cgi-bin/orac...072119756.html
    http://shop.osborne.com/cgi-bin/orac...072193336.html

    You get free questions with the books. They will help for Exams 1&2, and probably for 3&4, although the two Forms exams test on things not included in the books above. However, they cover about 90% of the exam material and if you have the practical knowledge you may pass without any other help.

    There are questions for sale at http://www.selftestsoftware.com/I never bought anything fom them. There is some free stuff on the Internet: http://www.examsonline.com/Home/Default.asp etc.

    Thanks, but I cannot say if it is very nice of you to try to pass the exams with cheetsheets. Now, try to be in my position: I have honestly studied and worked for my certificates. If you have the same certificate without any effords involved, how would I look at the value of the whole certification process?

    If you are C programmer, why do you need to be an certified Oracle programmer? Become a certified C-programmer!

    I worked as hard core PL/SQL developer in my previous assignments utilizing pro*c
    for more than two years. Performed development dba functions off and on. Passed my 8i ocp dba track. Preparing for 9i upgrade exam.

    Teaching oracle dba track for the first time. I still need more time and practice in order to be even eligible for a position as production dba.

    i think she'll have a long way to go.

    She's looking for short cuts in the beginning. Vow what a world. I can only wish her best of luck and pray for her.
