Thread: practical knowledge

  1. #1
    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...

    Hi Chester,
    I passed O7.3 and O8 DBA without experience !!!
    and I didn't attend full class for that, I just attended
    SQL/PL SQL and Oracle Administration(i.e. first 2 paper) classes and rest of all i prepared at home(I've computer at home)!!

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

    You can buy STS from [url]http://www.stsware.com[/url] and
    exam cram are available at [url]http://www.amazon.com[/url]
    [url]http://www.chapters.com[/url], [url]http://www.fatbrain.com[/url] and any local computer book store.

    You should go for exam, don't be scared bcoz of its
    cost ($99)!

    HTH,
    Good Luck :)

    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!!
