Comments:

Listened thorugh the exam design recordings - very useful, and a very impressive presentation format! But why did Joel Goodman's voice have to sound like he's aboard the Space Shuttle halfway to Mars using an old cell phone outside his space helmet? I am sure he could just pop into a meeting room with his iPod and make a crystal clear recording you could edit. The sound quality completely ruined the professional appearance of the recording.

True - the audio quality was a result of capturing a webcast. Thanks for the feedback!

Hi, I would like to take OCA exam. I'm new to Oracle. I'm wondering if you could give me some suggestions what I should do before taking the exams. Also, which one should I pick, 1Z0-047 or 1Z0-051 or 1Z0-052? Please advise. I really appreciate your suggestions. Thanks, JH
