Hi, I have decided to go for certification and have my first exam 1Z0-001 booked for Friday 31st July. I then want to go on and do the 1Z0-147 but i cant find any study guides or courses that are relevant to this exam, can you help ? I also want to get my OCP in the same stance but have no forms training or skill and was thinking oif the CBT , what do you think is this a good starting point ? Look forward to your comments. Barry

Hello Paul, Thanks of the initiative of creating a blog. My suggestion to the next post is to comment about the 1z0-047 Certification: Is this a new certification? It's replaced OCA/OCP Developer certification? Do you realy think that a Developer can be called SQL Expert only by learning these topics? Does the hiring managers knows about this cert already? How it's been evaluated to them? They are giving the right importance to it? Try to get new topics by reading the certification forum: Thanks again, I'm anxious for the next topics.

Vinicius - the 047 exam (Oracle Database SQL Expert) is just one part of a longer track that leads to Oracle PL/SQL OCA & OCP certification. (So no, this isn't the only requirement for certification). A great new post on PL/SQL certification has just gone up this evening: "Developer Track Revealed – Alternative OCP Path for PL/SQL Developer OCAs."

Sundar - the 10g OCP track page has a listing for "Complete one of the approved instructor-led online or in-class courses" which will be helpful. Good luck! Cheers, - Harold
