Prepare For Your Oracle Certification At OpenWorld and JavaOne

Calling all Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne conference attendees! If you are considering an Oracle certification in Java SE 7 programming or upgrading your Oracle DBA certification to 11g, then you should not miss the exclusive opportunity to attend certification exam cram training being offered by Oracle University on the Sunday prior to the start of the conferences.

Oracle University will be hosting two full-day "Exam Cram" sessions on September 30th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m for the Oracle DBA Certified Professional Upgrade to 11g exam and the OCA and OCP, Java Programmer SE 7 exams.  These sessions will cover concepts covered in each of the exam objectives so you are fully prepared and feel more confident when you take your exam.  Our sessions include lecture, tips, opportunities for Q&A with our expert instructors plus a course kit that you can use as an ongoing reference while preparing for the exam.

Learn more about these sessions and register today:

To register, simply add on "Oracle University" or "Java University" Pre-Conference training to your pass. And if you happen to live in the Bay area but can't make the full conference, you can still choose to attend one of these sessions on Sunday.  Don't miss this one-of-a-kind opportunity to prep with the experts.

Please note that these Exam Cram sessions will not fulfill the training requirement for certifications that require training.

Comments:

I noticed the following information regarding scoring Certification exams on Oracle website. Does it apply only to the beta exams and not to the 'regular' exams:

"Scored and Unscored Questions
Your exam may contain unscored questions in addition to the scored questions, so the total number of questions that are presented to you may be greater than the number shown above. This is standard testing practice. You will not know which questions are unscored. If your exam contains unscored questions, the time allowed for the exam takes into consideration the time you will need to answer all questions and review your work. Your exam results will reflect your performance on the scored questions only.
"

Thanks.

Hi Mala,
This statement is referring to all Oracle exams.

Hi Brandye,

Thanks for your quick reply.

To clarify, for an example, Java SE 7 Programmer I exam (1Z0-803) contains 90 questions to be answered in 150 minutes. Does the scoring policy imply that some (not all) condidates may get to answer more questions than 90, say 91, 92 or more? If so, they will be allocated additional time for it.

Thanks,
Mala

Hi Mala,
Actually, no. The exam contains 90 questions with 150 minutes allotted. Of those 90 questions, 10 of them may be unscored.

Hi Brandye,

Thanks for clearing this doubt.

So even if I answer a few incorrect questions in my exam, I stand a chance of scoring 100%!

Thanks again.

With respect,
Mala

Theoretically, yes.

Hi Brandye,

I have a query regarding the sample questions released by Oracle on the OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I certiifcation, available using http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=303&p_certName=SQ1Z0_803:

Code indentation - The candidates who have cleared this exam reported that most of the code was indented correctly for the exam questions. But the sample questions released by Oracle displays them with improper indentation. Is this on purpose or a webpage markup glitch?

Thanks.

With respect,
Mala

Hi Mala,
I am not sure about this. I will check with the developers.

Thanks,

I believe that this is a web issue. The web team is working on this.
