Did you know that your Oracle exams do not have to be taken in any particular order? This is good news for you if you are planning on pursuing the Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate certification. You can take the exam Oracle Database 12c: Installation and Administration (1Z1-062) while it is still in beta testing an start your path to certification at the greatly discounted cost of $50USD.

You can take the Oracle Database 12c: SQL Fundamentals (1Z0-061) later, if you like. So, if you have not yet signed up for the beta exam because you thought that 1Z0-061 was a pre-requisite to 1Z0-062, do it now! Go to pearsonvue.com/oracle and register for exam 1Z1-062. You can get all preparation details, including exam objectives, number of questions, time allotments, and pricing on the Oracle Certification Website.

Earning the Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Associate credential gives you the foundational knowledge and skills needed to administer the Oracle Database and sets the stage for your future progression to Oracle Database 12c Administrator Certified Professional.

    Hallo,

    Is 1Z0-007 "Introduction to Oracle9i: SQL" (which I passed 2 years ago as a first step to become OCA 9i one month later after passing 1Z0-031 "Oracle9i Fundamentals I" as well) still valid as a substitute for 1Z0-061 or 1Z0-047 or 1Z0-051? I ask this because here (http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=458&get_params=p_track_id:DBOCA12C) it is *NOT* indicated that it will also fulfill this exam requirement, which is necessary together with 1Z1-062 for becoming OCA 12c.

    Thank You

    Yes, the 007 exam is a valid substitute for 061, o51, or 047.

  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, September 16, 2014

    I would suggest that you post your question (with a little more information on your areas of expertise and areas of interest) on our Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm to receive feedback from your peers in your region. Certification can help you get a job, but much of that is up to you - how well prepared you are. Good luck!

    plz were should I start from in obtainin d oracle oca cert....what should I study....how can I get exams dumps to prepare me for the exams...thnks


  • Brandye Barrington Tuesday, February 17, 2015

    I suggest that you start by visiting our website certification.oracle.com. You can find the certification that you wish to pursue, view the requirements, prepare for exams, see recommended training. Do not use dumps. Using dumps is cheating.

    Once you determine which exam(s) you will take, you can visit the Oracle Certification Forum http://bit.ly/Lt5vhm and find any recommended books and prep.

    pls i wish to take the Oracle Database 12c SQL Certified Associate 1Z0-071, what are the topics covered for the exam or syllabus, and where can i get softcopy of the study guide as well as exam dumps.
    thanks

    Edafe,
    That's a difficult question to answer because I'm sure it varies region by region, company by company and job candidate by job candidate. I think that you need to look at a few job postings in your area that you'd be interested in applying for and see what the requirements are.

    This question is difficult to answer. It varies region by region, company by company, and even job candidate by job candidate. I would recommend looking at some job openings in your area that you'd be interested in applying for, and seeing what the requirements are.
