I am a networking professional and I would like to get into the world of Oracle. The problem is, I have 0 (zero) knowledge of databases and/or database management. I was wondering if someone could give me tips if pursuing an Oracle certification is something I should do. And if so, could anybody please provide information on how to get training materials for beginners?
As a freshman (even for Networking), I think Sybex for 007,031,032 & Oracle Press for 033, with 3-6 months of part-time memorization should be good enough to pass OCP 9i. There are also various resources such as ILT/STS/TestKing... if you do a good search of this forum. Good Luck!
