Making the Most of Your Study Time

Getting certified is a big commitment, requiring a significant investment of time, energy and brainpower. In a recent survey, more candidates indicated that - when deciding to pursue certification - their time investment was a more important consideration than their money investment. Because of this, it's important that you make the most of your preparation time investment.

I've been asked many times: "what study or preparation methods and materials do you recommend for Oracle certification?"

I highly recommend that candidates include the following two steps as a part of their exam preparation process:
  1.  Review and understand the exam objectives - The exam objectives are provided on the Oracle certification website and are intended to help you get an understanding of the topics, scope and breadth of the exam. Conduct a carefully review the topics and determine where you have gaps in your knowledge and skill set.
  2. Build and execute a Personalized Study Plan - Create a customized plan of action to help you close your knowledge gaps (from your analysis mentioned above). This may include items such as Oracle training, hands-on practice, books and white papers (on the Oracle Technology Network).

Since your goal of becoming certified is a significant time investment, remember to focus your Personalized Study Plan on items that will provide the largest return on your time investment - these might include comprehensive reviews and practice exams.

The decision to become certified is not trivial; however by making the most of your preparation time you can learn more and become more certain that you are ready for your test
