    Hello, I am rather new to the ORACLE DBA world... I have completed the first two instructor-lead classes in the Oracle 8i DBA track... They were very exspensive as I took them at the Oracle Certification Center... however... After reviewing all the material numerous times... and running through the examples and whatnot I don't feel like I have any practical knowledge of Oracle... I've been posting and reading articles on these forums on a daily basis... and that's helping...

    I have not taken any OCP tests yet... because I've heard that you need a good deal of actual exspirience to pass them and I don't want to fail after taking these exspensive classes... it just wouldn't look good...

    I have the entire Oracle DBA Track Curriculum and documentation of CD... I've heard of STS and Exam Cram but where do I find them to actually buy... any other suggestions ... and aside of taking the OCP tests... where can I get some practical application knowledge of Oracle...

    I used Jason Couchman's book, Exam cram and Off course

    You can buy STS from [url]http://www.stsware.com[/url] and
    exam cram are available at [url]http://www.amazon.com[/url]

    I was scared of taking the exam. Please don't just go for it. Once you've set a date, you'll just have to make it some how. Just go for it!!
