11g OCP

I passed the 1Z0-055 "Oracle Database 11g: New Features for 9i OCPs" examination today.

(yes, I skipped 10g certification)

Congrats!!!

What study materials did you use? I am not 10g OCP as well and would consider 11g OCP.

I went through both 11g New Features books : Sam Alapati and Robert Freeman. A few times !
I also used SelfTestSoftware's test suite a number of times.

Hi Hemant,

Just came across your blog. I am planning to upgrade from 9i OCP to 11g OCP (1Z0-055).
Oracle has the course (ILT) but no self-paced study materials. They have for Oracle 11g New features which is a bit different to 1Z0-055 syllabus.

There is a book but not readily available in the market.

Since I am OCP-DBA 9i do I need to do any Oracle training as pre-requirements for certification exam?

Thanks,
Sid..

Sid,
The 11g New Features books cover new features from 10g to 11g.
However, the 9i to 11g upgrade exam spans the two versions.
So you need to be aware of and comfortable with 10g. Then you can read the 11g New Features books to prepare. That is how I did it.

I am not aware of a "study guide" for the 9i to 11g upgrade.

However, www.ucertify.com does have an online/offline module.
