Sorry everyone, but I really couldn't find an icon that allows me to reply to my own thread, so I am forced to post a new thread...my apology!
SM 5999, or Santosh, I did not receive anything from you yet! If you still have, can you please email me practice questions for Oracle 8 Network admin IZO-016? I have STS though, but I need more practice instead of reading the books! Anyone else can help would be appreciated!
Since you already have the STS...the best advise I can give to you would be to open up Net8 Assistant and get to know it inside-and-out. If you can work with the SQLNET.ora, TNSNAMES.ora, and create an ONAMES server...you'll be in much better shape!!
