    Hi Sureshgane,
    I used Jason couchman's book 'Oracle 8 DBA Certification
    Exam guide' and STS.
    Now a dyas, Exam Cram is available for each paper
    which is purely Exam Oriented so you will find these
    books are very helpful to exam point of view.

    You can also visit [url]http://www.education.oracle.com[/url] for
    more info on certification and student guide.

    HTH,

    The Jason Couchman's book is not a good one. Though I bought the book I did not read much in it.

    I agree with Tamil, Jason Couchman's book is dry, but consists of good theroies. I'm using Exam Cram Series by Coriolis publication, for Pl-Sql, Administration & Backup & recovery. I believe the perfomance tuning guide is not yet released. The authors being, debbie wong, Paul Colins & Michael Ault.

    Hello aarganesh,

    Also Performance tuning is available. I used it for the Performance tuning exam.

    As a preperation for the exams I first read Couchman. Then after that I read the exam cram.
    After that I read the online oracle 8 documentation.
    During all this I practice a lot.

    When feeling confident enough I do the exam.

    tycho
