This is Your Last Chance to Take the Oracle Exadata 11g Essentials (1Z0-536) Exam

Brandye Barrington
Sr. Program Manager

This is a reminder that the Oracle Exadata 11g Essentials Exam (1Z0-535) retires December 21, 2013. This exam and the resulting certification have been replaced with a newer version. Obtain the new Exadata Database Machine Models X3-2 and X3-8 Certified Implementation Specialist certification by taking "Exadata Database Machine Models X3-2 and X3-8 Implementation Essentials" (exam 1Z0-485), which is currently available in production.

If you plan to take the 1Z0-536 exam, register now to take this exam, or review the exam topics for exam 1Z0-485 and plan to adjust your preparation to take the new exam. Existing certification holders, note that this retirement suspends the delivery of any further exams, but does not affect your certification. If you currently hold the Oracle Exadata 11g Certified Implementation Specialist certification, your credential remains fully valid.

This exam continues to be offered through December 21, 2013. Candidates pursuing these certification paths must successfully complete the required certification exam by this date. Re-takes will not be available after this date. For more information, see Oracle Certification retirements. Act now before this opportunity is gone.
