      Alternatively, consider changing your strategy and prepare for Oracle Database 11g: Program with PL/SQL | 1Z0-144, which replaces exam 1Z0-147 in the Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate path. 

      Recommendations From Your IT Peers

      Your IT certified peers have good ideas about which top certifications to put on your to-do list.

      According to Certification Magazine, they asked the survey question, “Which IT certification(s) are you planning to pursue within the next 12 months? Many thousands of those surveyed responded, choosing from the more than 700 IT certs included in the survey."

      Here is what you'll want to know, the two certifications in the top 5:

      #2 Oracle Certified Professional
      #5 Oracle Certified Associate
