It looks like the exams are still around, although the 7.3 certs were axed in August. Keep an eye on Oracle's website for an anouncement (I don't think they'll retire this exam until they retire the 8 track...the certification track, that is).
Sorry, I don't have anything, since I didn't take that test. :) But, I just checked half.com and someone's selling the coriolis book for $10.00, but you can get a first time discount if you do the following (like five bucks or so). Go to isbn.nu . Type in the isbn of this book (1-57610-543-1). Select price compare and look for the coupon. When you check out, it will ask for the coupon code or something....Anyway, others may have better ideas.
